When Sophie first set foot in Africa, she had booked a three-week holiday in South Africa. This very quickly became a six-month trip that involved exploring South Africa before travelling overland through Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. The final few days of this trip were spent on safari with the Bushcamp Company in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. These few days gave her an insight into the specialist safari industry; she was hooked!
Within a month of leaving Zambia, Sophie was on a flight back there. She had been offered a job as a Bush Camp Manager with the Bushcamp Company. This was the start of her career in the safari industry, which has seen her run camps in East Africa too, specifically Jongomero in Ruaha National Park for the Selous Safari Company, Alex Walker’s Serian North and finally the exceptional Alex Walker’s Serian Lamai Mobile.
Sophie has firsthand experience of the safari industry and now works as an East African and Zambia specialist at Yellow Zebra. Her experience of both sides of the industry ensures that her clients enjoy consistently well-thought-out and expertly designed safaris.
