Managing Director

Get to know

Colin hails from Wolverhampton in the UK, where he worked as an accountant. He was sent to South Africa on an assignment for two weeks – 25 years later and he is still here! He fell in love with the country and started to organise holidays for his friends, eventually deciding to make a business out of it. His love for the African bush was born in the Shamwari Private Game Reserve where he was a regular visitor in the early days and grew to encompass the Addo Elephant National Park, where Woodall Lodge remains a firm favourite. He remembers getting stuck in the mud at the Pumba Private Game Reserve as Pumba Water Lodge was being built, exploring the Greater Kruger area and enjoying a lavish getaway at Motswari Safari Lodge, navigating the bush with Rob the Ranger at Idube Safari Lodge, where he saw his first wild dog. His best game drive took place at Lion Sands where he saw lions, leopards and cheetahs with cubs, all in one afternoon! The Madikwe Private Game Reserve is another favourite, especially Etali Lodge, where the Big 5 casually strolled by his room as he was trying to catch up on emails. It’s not just South Africa he loves – some of his favourite African getaways include Lake Kariba, the Okavango Delta, the Hwange National Park, St Helena, Zanzibar and the Seychelles. Basically everywhere! His love for travel shows in the company, where we are all dedicated to creating dream African holidays. After all, Colin does keep telling people he has the best job in the world.
