Team Overview

Our dedicated team of Destination Experts are made up of three teams. Each one of our experts has extensive knowledge and first hand experience of the destinations they specialize in.

They are well traveled and continuously re-visiting the destinations we work with, trying and testing everything our extraordinary regions have to offer.

By Region

Central + South America

Our destination experts are constantly out there in our destinations and in touch daily with our people on the ground. Headed by Sarah Griffiths and the rest of the team strongly at her side, the Latin American business was started in 1997 by Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell. Tourism in much of Latin America is still very raw but it is also a day to day task to ‘go beyond’ and to find new ways and fresh guides.

Africa + Indian Ocean

Our destination experts are constantly out there in our destinations and in touch daily with our people on the ground. Started by Henrietta Loyd and headed up by Claire Ferguson, Africa has always been the biggest part of the business. Relationships count for a lot and we still work with so many of the same people we have worked with for twenty years. There is constant change and the team are always reviewing and adding to the experiences they can offer and the lodges and guides they work with.

Asia + The Middle East

Headed up by Alex Wix she has added Asia+The Middle East to the team’s previous emphasis on India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal and the Maldives and has been integral in developing destinations such as Thailand and Indonesia.
