A Bit About Ellen
I was born in South Africa and grew up in Botswana, which provided me with an early fascination for the African wilderness. Both of my parents worked in the safari industry when I was a child and most of my holidays were spent gallivanting in the Okavango Delta, which retains a very special place in my heart.
After school I wanted to study Veterinary Science but was instead drawn back to my roots in Botswana, where I began my career managing a camp in the Selinda Reserve. My passion and knowledge for the industry eventually brought me to the UK where, as a Destination Specialist, I enjoy nothing more than sharing my knowledge and passion for African wildlife with others.
The travel bug bit me at the age of 9 when I travelled to Mozambique to swim with dolphins. Since then I have explored many regions within southern Africa as well as wider parts of the world. Although my recent travels have taken me to cities throughout Africa, Europe and America, I am most at home in the African bush.
