About Melissa Hansen

“Investment in travel is an investment in yourself.” ~ Matthew Karsten

Melissa’s role at Rothschild Safaris is to oversee Sales and Operations. She manages our team of Travel Designers, Client Managers, and Operations staff which is the heartbeat of the company. If you have talked to a Travel Designer, booked a trip, or established a connection with your Client Manager, then chances are Melissa knows your name and where you are going.

Melissa is no stranger to the luxury travel world. She has planned private luxury safaris, cruises, and ski trips for hundreds of families across the globe. Specializing in group travel, her greatest achievement was planning a custom Northern European cruise aboard one of the most luxurious yachts on the sea for 450 discerning guests. Her favorite place to send travelers is Botswana, where massive herds of elephants and cape buffaloes roam amidst some of the biggest lions in the world. The one piece of advice that she gives to every traveler is to take in the entire experience, whether things go exactly as planned or not. Travel has the potential to enhance a person’s perspective and heart if given the opportunity.
