WHO WE ARE

Diane Wales-Baillie
Founder &  African Travel Specialist

 

I am an ex South Africa who migrated to New Zealand in the year 2000.

I have made New Zealand my home and become a Citizen. 

Travel has been my lifes passion and I have learnt along the way that there are so many amazing places around the world to experience, the destinations are endless and the memories are forever.

I joined the Travel Industry over 36 years ago and I have been very fortunate to have traveled around the globe  to and across  Europe, United Kingdom and Scotland, The United States of America, The United Arab Emirates, Mauritius, the Seychelles and Reunion, The South Pacific Island of Fiji, visited Hong Kong and Singapore and South America.
However my speciality is in fact "Africa" as not only did I live there but I have an immense passion for wildlife and safaris.  I truly
believe that Africa is a place that every person should experience at least once in their life. Its an adventure you will never forget.

I am also a wildlife photographer so location is very important when it comes to choosing a safari, my subjects are always the Big 5 as you will see all the images on this website are taken by myself.
I have intimate knowledge of Game Parks and Lodges and have excellent relationships with many of the lodges owners and staff having this capability means you are in safe hands and you can be assured your holiday will be to the best of your tastes. We specialize in Safaris.

So whether you are looking for flights, booking your dream holiday to another destination or perhaps thinking of ticking an African Safari off your bucket list, please feel free to contact me and I will make sure to get you there!
