Travel Expertise

Jenieen’s expertise lies in Southern Africa – she has seen most of the Southern Africa destinations and whilst she does not favour one African destination over the other, the South is where her heart is and where she has traveled to most.

Jenieen’s favourite destination in Africa

Naming one is impossible! Namibia – Erindi Game Reserve – for its amazing elephant sightings. Botswana – Machaba Camp – for its stunning location and the great staff members. Zambia/Zimbabwe – seeing the Victoria Falls from both sides and visiting Elephant Camp.
