The Timeless Africa Team
is the founder of Timeless Africa and heads up the office in London, England. He cut his travel planning teeth in the offices of Let's Go Travel, publishers of the Let's Go travel guides, and is certified as a South African Travel Fundi (expert). Julian's first trip to Africa as a schoolboy was rudely terminated when his mum refused to sign the permission form on the grounds that he was going to catch a heinous disease and die. Despite this less than promising beginning the call of Africa could not be denied, and he now travels to Africa as often as possible - recent visits have included Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, and Tanzania. If someone put a gun to his head and forced him to choose his favourite African destination he would have to admit that Botswana is particularly near and dear to his heart. Julian is a serious amateur photographer and will go to great lengths in the name of the perfect shot, including being duct-taped into a doorless helicopter over the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The risks have paid off (or so he hopes) - he has won awards for his photography and his work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. His non-safari orientated travels have taken him to Italy, Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Egypt, the United States, Canada, and to various locations across England. Julian enjoys wine tasting and collects art and antique maps, and can often be found haunting the tasting rooms of the Cape Winelands or the art galleries of Johannesburg between safaris. He has made it his personal mission to introduce as many camps as possible to his sundowner of choice, hot chocolate and Amarula à la Londolozi, and has recently developed a dangerous addiction to North Island muesli and tempura prawns. He remains resolutely free of heinous diseases.

She owes her love for animals, nature and people of other cultures - as well as an insatiable curiosity in general - to the National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines her parents always had around the house. She went on to study journalism and cultural anthropology in college. Her travels have taken her to Africa, Europe, Canada, Mexico, Central America, Western Asia, the Caribbean, Polynesia, and throughout the U.S. She has planned many successful solo and group trips around the globe, and looks forward to helping you plan the perfect African journey.
