Charmian 1 - Copy.jpg

Born in Kitwe, on the copper belt in Zambia, Charmian’s early childhood years were spent in WindhoekNamibia. She developed an early admiration of the extraordinary African wilderness when at weekends, her and her family would explore the endless reaches of the Etosha DesertSwakopmund and the Skeleton Coast in a caravan. Discovering bushmen paintings in hidden desert caves by day, and sleeping under the bowl of stars each night, this was when she found her sense of curiosity and her love of travel, wildlife and adventure was secured.

Charmian was at school in Johannesburg, where the vibrancy and evolution of South Africa from an apartheid state to a Rainbow Nation impacted greatly in her formative years. After studying Law and obtaining a Master’s Degree in English Literature, the draw of her bush roots lead her to work in Private Game Reserves in South Luangwa National ParkKafue National ParkPhinda and then the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which still holds a very special place in her heart.

Charmian’s embedded zeal for travel and responsible tourism brought her to the UK to create bespoke African adventure itineraries. She has a deep understanding of wildlife and birdlife, the seasons and migrations, and her contacts extend to all sectors of the safari industry including aviation, guides and conservation. Charmian has travelled extensively throughout the region and knows it incredibly well, and is on hand to get your love affair with Africa ignited.
