Life before Swoop
The lure of exploring iconic destinations proved more appealing than entering the legal profession so I re-trained as an overland tour leader instead, and led tours through Sub-Saharan Africa from the vast Namibian desert to the Serengeti plains. My adventures would often see me camping for 60 days straight! I have also had an epic 90 day road trip around the US and been trekking in Nepal. On returning home, I pursued my love of travel by planning trips for others. For the past 10 years, I ahve been helping customers to explore the very best of what a destination has to offer.
Why I love polar travel
I love that no two days, or even landings, are the same; it adds to the sense of uniqueness you get throughout. It’s the ultimate adventure to experience such a remote location and I just love the combination of vast, open space, and incredible wildlife.
