Has spent 40 years exploring Southern Africa! UK born, Alexandra grew up in South Africa and Botswana, studied zoology at the University of Cape Town and worked in conservation in Namibia before moving into international IT consulting. Over the years, Alexandra returned often to the region, drawn to the vast game reserves of the drier northern areas of South Africa.
Inspired by the benefit of sustainable tourism, and with a clear vision on local social upliftment, she set up Alexandra’s Africa in 2012 and works with local partners, suppliers and guides to showcase this beautiful off-the-beaten-track region, the nature, the wildlife, communities, art and culture – responsibly and respectfully. Alexandra is a keen photographer and many of her own images are featured here. She runs the company from her base in Hampshire, UK.
