Anouk was born in Holland but raised in Malawi and Kenya. She left Africa to complete her BA and MSc in the UK before marrying and moving to the US. Africa is where her heart has always remained, and with over 18 years’ experience in the Africa travel industry, she has managed to return to the continent on a regular basis. She’s extended her experience way beyond “home” to include North, Central and West Africa on her many adventures. Highlights include gorilla tracking in Rwanda, canoeing down the Zambezi, bargaining in the souks of Fez, and hot-air ballooning over the great migration in the Serengeti.
“When I was young my parents would take us on safari every few months in our old Fiat. I would oscillate between boredom and terror when we encountered anything larger than an impala. It wasn’t until I traveled as an adult, and encountered excellent guides and great camps that I understood the difference between just driving around a wildlife reserve, and being guided on a quality safari. It’s now become a passion to share my love for Africa’s wildlife and its cultures with my clients. I guarantee it will never be boring, and always authentic, exciting, and hopefully life-changing.”
