A Bit About Me

I oversee the marketing at Natural World Safaris, having joined the company in 2013.

I've worked specifically in tourism for a number of years now, both in-house and agency side, having been involved with the marketing in some form or the other for over 50 travel-related brands and organisations but Natural World Safaris is definitely the most exciting one I've been part of!

Travel is definitely a passion of mine something I have always prioritised in life. I have a strong preference for getting away as remotely as possible for as long as time and budget allows. It is great to be part of a brand that combines so many of my interests; travel, photography and wildlife.

Q & A With Kate

What’s your favourite thing about working at NWS?

I get paid to do something I love with great people. What's not to like!

What do you like doing outside of NWS?

I love being outdoors so I'm often in the woods, on the beach or up the South Downs with my two children. I'm a keen (not to be confused with good) runner and every Saturday morning I join our local ParkRun while on Sundays I'm a volunteer paddlesport instructor for a local club. I'm also an enthusiastic photographer - you can find me on Instagram @katewaite.travel.

If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be?

Impossible to answer as I want to do all of them! I'm very lucky to have done several over the years and they are all exceptional experiences.

Is there a standout destination in your mind?

Anywhere in Africa! Once you've been you'll be hooked, there is nothing that beats those early morning game drives, and end of day sundowners in the bush.

What is your best or worst travel souvenir?

I never used to buy travel souvenirs as I never had enough room in my luggage and I'm quite minamalist with posessions, but since having children I always buy them something small and suitably tacky for them to keep in a travel treasures box. So now I'm the person buying cheap plaster cast replicas of famous buildings ...

What is the best or worst travel advice you have received?

Pack light. It can be an art form but it's one I've perfected, even when travelling with my family we can get away quite happily with just hand luggage. It definitely makes life easier.
