Debbie joined Africa Travel in May 2009 and has been in the travel industry for over 20 years, enjoying a number of roles, from airline ticketing to accounting. In her free time she loves hiking and enjoys experiencing and supporting her local community. Other interests include hobby crafts, cooking and entertaining. She has travelled numerous times overseas, but Debbie says that there is no place like Africa….it’s in her bones! She feels that there are such beautiful places to enjoy right on her doorstep, and that seeing Table Mountain every morning is just something that she would not like to live without.
What is your favourite place in Africa?
South Africa, my home. There is so much to see and my love of hiking makes this possible.
What is your most memorable experience in Africa?
Climbing a part of the Drakensbergs, and seeing the majestic landscape. The Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga too. I also enjoyed a New Year’s with a difference, sleeping in local huts on a 6 day hike from Port St Johns to Coffee Bay.
Where would you like to visit next and why?
Tanzania, to climb Kilimanjaro…Morocco, to do some shopping
What's your best advice for someone travelling to Africa?
Check out any festivals or activities in advance of your departure to ensure you get the most out of your trip, and plan your route accordingly. Wear sunscreen, and experience some local eateries in Cape Town – our cuisine is fantastic.
