I have many happy travel memories but going to the coast (Kenya) by train is always a favorite. Leaving the railway station at 7 pm sharp and then having dinner in the dining car and breakfast as you travel through the Tsavo National Park. Arriving in Mombasa with the bustle and noise of the station there and finally getting to your destination whether it’s the South or North Coast.
What is your favorite travel memory?
Which destination is most underrated? Conversely, which is most overrated?
The most underrated would probably be Western Kenya. It is a beautiful part of the country that is not explored as much as the rest. It is hard to say which is the most overrated but visitors to Kenya always head to the Masai Mara and the Coast. There are several other great parks and reserves. The area around Lake Victoria has sandy beaches and clear waters where you can swim and do various water sports.
What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?
Motivated staff combined with a great product.
How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?
I have become more confident, having been given the opportunity to work in the field, leading groups.
What unique qualities does your company possess?
Our knowledgeable and experienced staff.
Describe a time when you felt especially proud to be part of your current team.
Recently one of our volunteer group's gave a facelift to a kindergarten over a weekend. When the little ones came to school on Monday, they couldn’t believe their eyes. They were so happy.
What is the best story you've heard from a return student?
Being part of AV (Africa & Asia Venture) was a life-changing experience so much so that the individual in question decided to move to Africa to do more.
