Discover Africa with Diane

Diane is Discover Africa's Senior Travel Consultant and has extensive knowledge about travel in South Africa.

My passion for tourism started with my first love – Africa and her wildlife! When I was small it was my dream to be a game ranger, but life took me in another direction! After spending 10 years of my life in the UK, I moved back to South Africa. I didn’t want a meaningless career and wanted to feel pride and passion in what I knew, so I started a job in outbound tourism as I had been lucky enough to travel overseas. I love what I do, and I love when a client comes back to me on what a wonderful experience they have had!

More about our African Travel Specialist

What does Diane love about African travel?

I love experiencing new cultures and new food….especially the food!

What African countries have you travelled to?

I have traveled South Africa extensively – in fact, there is no region of South Africa I have not been to. I have also been to Mauritius.

What is Diane favourite place in Africa?

I love the beauty and wildness of the Garden Route of South Africa – one of my best safari experiences was driving the garden route, ending with a safari in the Eastern Cape.

What is your most memorable experience in Africa?

I went on a safari in the Eastern Cape and to be honest I wasn’t expecting much compared to the Kruger. However I was blown away by my game drive experiences I had in Kwandwe. Our guide was awesome and took us on a night drive – where we got stuck amongst a herd of Elephants. He turned off the vehicle and we all stayed still it was dark and all we could hearing was the swooshing of the Elephants ears as they walked past us. It was terrifying and exhilarating – I will never forget that sound of the Ellies – they were so quiet!

What is your best advice for someone travelling to Africa?

Come with an open mind. Don’t read all the nonsense in the news about how dangerous it is. The people in Africa are warm and friendly, you will never experience anything like it.
