Discover Africa Safaris Alice Lombard

Alice is Discover Africa’s Sales & Product Manager, responsible for managing the Discover Africa Sales Consultants as well as all the product and itineraries that we promote.

Alice was brought up in a European home with a love for travel, people and culture, so she was bitten by the travel bug early on in life. After school, she studied travel and tourism and immediately entered the travel industry.

She’s lived and worked in Europe for two years. Her career path allowed her to work in many different fields of travel - retail travel agencies, airlines, wholesale tour operators as well as online travel companies.

She moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town and was then involved in the start up and running of two online travel companies and has developed a passion for online travel. She has been fortunate enough to travel extensively and has visited six of the seven continents.

She loves to share her knowledge and experiences and loves assisting others in creating travel memories particularly in our amazing country and continent.
