New York, New York Travel Agent
Africa Travel Expert
"I have enjoyed more than 30 years in the travel industry promoting Africa to adventurers and those looking for an experience of a lifetime. From 1981 to 1993, I worked for the Kenya Tourist Board under the diplomatic umbrella promoting tourism to Kenya. I worked with various tour operators, airlines, travel agents and media bringing awareness about travel to Kenya to the American Market as well as Mexico and Canada.In 1993, I branched out of government to work as a tour operator, packaging safaris to East Africa and later adding South Africa after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison. In 1995, I joined a California-based tour operator as their East Coast and Mid-West Sales Manager, increasing their sales to more than 50% annually.I joined Protravel and founded our ProAfrica division in 2005, selling Africa journeys to high-end clientele and see a great future with a steady level of service in partnership with our expert ground handlers. I have a close and personal relationship with all suppliers who give extra care to clients booked through ProAfrica and fantastic negotiated rates and VIP amenities for our clients.We specialize in custom-tailored itineraries for families, honeymooners and those seeking out-of-the-ordinary travel experiences."
