PAST TOUR AT KAINGO:
Anna has 20 years industry experience and has travelled to close on 60 countries since being “bitten by the travel bug” in her mid-teens. After completing her travel degree in 1990 she bought the one-way ticket to London and spent the next couple of years working for Contiki as a site rep in the picture postcard perfect village of Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland and then as a tour leader with Top Deck, allowing her to travel extensively all over Europe including the Scandinavian countries.
After a two year stint back in Perth as a retail consultant Anna strapped on the backpack again and headed to South America for 3 months, starting in Rio de Janerio and visiting such highlights as Iguaçu Falls, Bariloche, The Altiplano, Cusco and Machu Picchu. On the way home Anna decided to get off the flight in Africa and stay. For over 3 years Anna worked as a tour leader with an overland company running tours anywhere from 2 to 9 weeks in duration between East and Southern Africa. During this time she guided groups through a multitude of wildlife parks, trekked on many occasions to the Mountain Gorillas, canoed and rafted the Zambezi River and camped in wild “off the beaten track” locations; so started a passion for not only all things African, but wildlife and wilderness in general which along with a passion for photography has not diminished over the years.
Since joining Peregrine Travel Centre in 2000, Anna has continued her love affair with Africa and annually escorts small private groups to Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and beyond. Her travel repertoire has not been confined just to Africa over the last 10 years, she has visited such places as the Middle East; Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey and Morocco, with their fascinating ancient history, South East Asia, Indochina and India, shortly she will add Central Asia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan to the mix. Anna has also sailed to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Antarctica and Svalbard in the High Arctic on the Akademik Ioffe, plus visiting the Amazon Jungle and Galapagos Islands in Ecuador a must see for any lover of wildlife.
