Louise de Waal

Louise de Waal's bio

Born and bred in Holland, lived & worked for 18 or so years in England and now live my dream in Cape Town - probably the most beautiful spot in the world. I have always had a passion for travelling, meeting new people from different cultural backgrounds, learning about a country’s history and discovering new landscapes, but got bitten by the Africa bug big time after having worked as a volunteer in Tanzania. With an academic background in environmental science, environmental issues and sustainability are part of my believe system and lifestyle. To organise somebody’s dream holiday and at the same time making sure that those trips make a positive impact on the destination and its people, is a real honour.

Most amazing travel experience: Too many to chose from, but my first wild dog encounter in Selous (Tanzania) definitely occurs in the Top 10.

Travel philosophy: Step out of your comfort zone and explore the real Africa.
