Following my time working with wildlife safaris and nature conservation in Africa, I joined Tim Best, a specialist tour operator in London.
Focused at the high end of the market, we organised tailor-made trips to numerous countries across the continent, especially those in Eastern and Southern Africa. In the office, I worked as a sales and marketing manager. Apart from organising journeys for clients, I assisted with the website, newsletters, destination content and PR events. Using my local knowledge of the region, visiting new sites in Africa and meeting owners of safari operations, I also helped expand the company’s portfolio of recommended places to visit.
Through our work, we supported a range of conservation and social projects in Africa, including Tusk (for whom I ran the London Marathon) and Amref Health Africa.
