South African by birth, this multilingual adventurer believes that Africa offers nature as it should be: wild, authentic and breath-taking. Now based in Paris, Riki returns to her ‘home’ regularly and keeps in touch with her favourite places in Africa by designing tailor-made safaris throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Having grown up on safaris and later acting as a tour-host in the industry, Riki enjoys nothing better than planning trips for others, so that they too can experience the rhythm of the bush at its finest. She never tires of the endless possibilities of animal sightings and encounters one can have on safari: some of her highlights include watching a leopard feasting on a fresh kill in the Serengeti; tracking a pair of teenage black back gorillas in Rwanda, and enjoying the sound of lions roaring or hippos snorting – of course while enjoying gin and tonic!
Riki knows that no trip is ever the same and she enjoys to share her love and knowledge while planning one-of-a-kind adventures in the bush.
