Janine caught the travel bug after her first overseas experience, which was literally crossing the ocean on a yacht delivery to the Seychelles when she was 21. Desperate to discover what more the world had to offer, Janine embarked on travels to the Caribbean, where she chartered yachts as a chef for three years. Over the next decade she travelled around most of the USA, visited Thailand on her honeymoon, opened and ran a successful restaurant, and received a degree in Marketing and Business Management. She donned the Public Relations hat for a few years and then made the decision to emigrate. She worked in Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos Islands for an adventure tourism company as Cruise Relations Manager before finally settling in the UK with her husband and two children.
Despite all the beauty she is fortunate to have experienced around the world, Janine’s heart will forever be in Africa and nothing will ever compare with the magnificence of a true African safari, especially at sunset! This, for her, is still the ultimate way to spend a vacation and she is blessed to have enjoyed a fair number of game drives from some beautiful lodges and reserves in her life so far. Having seen four out of the Big Five, she is still looking forward to that elusive first leopard sighting one day!
