Belgian turned South African at heart. On my first ever holiday to South Africa, I fell head over heels in love with the bush - and coincidentally, my safari guide! We got married in 2019, I moved across the world to live in Hoedspruit (a small town bordering the Kruger National Park) & have never looked back!

After a long & windy road, from a degree in modern history & a PhD in trade politics in Belgium, to running our family business with my husband in South Africa, I finally landed at Wild Wonderful World. I am both a director in the Conservation NPC and work part-time for the safari company, running the social media, website & marketing and jumping in where needed on the admin & accounting side. Being the only one in the team who is not a qualified safari guide (though I like to think I’m learning the ropes bit by bit), I am loving the process of figuring out and learning about the complex world of wildlife conservation and the safari industry.

I’m passionate about low-impact & ecological living and being part of Wild Wonderful World is an incredible opportunity for me to carry through this mindset beyond my personal life, inspiring others to experience and fall in love with the beauty of nature, Africa, our wild spaces and wildlife!
