Extraordinary Africa was born of a desire to share our passion for Africa. We don’t set out to do a safari and beach trip (anyone with an atlas and a guidebook can do that), but to deliver the sort of life-changing, heart-stopping, soul-restoring adventures we’ve enjoyed ourselves.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER:
Alex is Tripadvisor’s Destination Expert for Uganda and Kenya, and one of Conde Nast Traveler’s Top Specialists 2023, 2022 and 2021.
ABOUT OUR OPERATIONS COORDINATOR:
Clare is Extraordinary Africa’s resident food and wine buff. Years spent on yachts exploring the world’s oceans (and the rather chilly west coast of Scotland) make her one of the best travelled members of our team and she remains an enthusiastic sailor as well as a qualified PADI diver.
Highlights of her African adventures include whale watching over breakfast at Morukuru, exploring the food markets of Cape Town, and spotting a pangolin on safari- an animal that even many guides have never seen. She’s the logistical coordinator, calm voice of reason and a mine of information on all things South African.
INTRODUCING THE OFFICE MANAGER:
Bob is the manager of the Extraordinary Africa office, supervising operations from his bed beside the filing cabinet. Callers to EA HQ might hear him trying to join the conversation in the background and he’s a friendly companion at our business meetings.
While he hasn’t been on safari yet, he’s fairly sure he’d fit in pretty easily with the black-backed jackals, and is particularly good at posing for photographs. Till then, his main job is keeping up morale in the Extraordinary Africa office, occasionally supervising our social media output and stealing the best chair in the office whenever he can.
