Graeme

Graeme’s life has been shaped by travel from an early age. Born in South Africa, his childhood is filled with memories of the sea, mountains, family safaris, and his first solo international trip at the age of 10 years old. Completing studies in Travel & Tourism, Marketing and Hotel Operations Management, Graeme’s passion for travel, customer interaction and operations was first ignited by working with the Walt Disney Company in early 2000. Completing his time with Disney, he returned to Africa and pursed his career in the hospitality industry, a path which over the past 20 years has taken him on an amazing and exciting journey. He has visited 5 continents, experienced over 20 different countries, and had the pleasure of working in a wide variety of leading  5-star operations, from boutique guest houses, cruise ships and remote beach resorts, to luxury safari lodges and large scale hotels. For the past 11 years, he has lived in New Zealand, where he travelled extensively, met his American wife In 2016, and got married on the lake overlooking the majestic Southern Alps. Prior to leaving New Zealand to come to the United States, Graeme pivoted into luxury travel, working with one of the leading inbound destination management companies. Graeme is passionate in everything he does, and has an infectious love for exploration, discovery, and creating memorable moments for clients. Working in Inside Sales, Graeme thrives on using his talents, knowledge and experience to conduct initial conversations with our clients, sharing his love for Africa, passion for travel, and uncovering the best the regions have to offer.
