Abbie Caldwell

I love the snow, whether its skiing in Europe or snowboarding through the trees and powder in Japan. I studied archaeology at university and simply can’t miss an opportunity to explore ancient ruins such as Angkor Wat or Machu Picchu.

Alexa Steele

I fell in love with travel whilst studying in Spain, experiencing the culture, language and food first hand just drew me in, and I quickly developed a desire to see new places. After university I spent 6 months in Asia and then a year in Latin America. I feel most at home when outdoors; whether it is wandering around a new city, relaxing on a beach or heading off on a full day hike.

Ali Andino

The experience that really piqued my curiosity and desire to see different cultures and to visit new places started out as a two year move to Caracas, Venezuela. Two years quickly turned into four. This was so inspiring that it sparked my interest to explore other corners of the globe.

Alice Lane

Having grown up traveling to South Africa almost yearly to visit family, my interest in travel was sparked from a young age. With a desire to explore this led me to travel through Europe and later Asia as soon as I could. I loved meeting different people and learniong about their cultures, however utlimately I have always been drawn back to South Africa.

Alice Moseley

My passion for travel began when I lived in Hong Kong. Since then I have continued to travel visiting islands in the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean. Explored the Middle East including Oman and the UAE, hopped around Europe, visited Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and nearly made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Alice Peal

I have to say, I’m a self-confessed ski addict and sunshine hunter. I love an adventure whatever the weather! I think my love of traveling and exploring new places is genetic – my 94 year old Granny is still taking herself off on long and exciting journeys around the globe.

Alison Carey

There's nothing I love more than planning a new adventure. I'm definitely the type of person who is always dreaming about my next trip and learning about new destinations and experiences.

Amber Hopkins

My passion for travel was kindled at an early age when vacationing with my family – experiencing safari in South Africa, witnessing the geothermal wonders of Iceland, and multiple USA road trips to name but a few – eventually underpinning my decision to read Geography at University and pursue a career in travel.

Amy Cammann

Having started skiing as a child and fallen in love with the mountains and all things winter, I decided to spend a year doing winter and summer seasons when I left school. That year turned into nine years of working in some beautiful winter and summer resorts. I have skiied in some incredible resorts across the Alps and Dolomites and can safely say that my heart remains in the mountains.

Amy Ropner

Living, breathing and seeing exciting places is an endless pursuit and so working in travel was the only job for me. Each place in the world inevitably has its own appeal yet my passion is focused on India Arabia & Asia; whether it's the authentic food, fascinating people or verdant and dramatic landscapes it really continues to capture my attention.

Ana Albiol

Having been born into the travel industry with my father working for a major European airline, I have been lucky enough to grow up with the world at my feet. Over the years, I've traveled to most continents with the exception of South America and Australasia and I hope that these are areas I can tick off my list in the next few years with my son in tow, a joy for travel clearly runs in our genes.

Andrew Dunn

Andrew Dunn wanted to ski for free, so at the age of 22, he set up his own ski company in 1986. Now Scott Dunn has become one of the market leaders in luxury customized travel. It’s Andrew’s passion for travel and attention to detail that drives the company philosophy that nothing is too much trouble and that those who travel with Scott Dunn are not just vacationmakers, they are our guests.

Anna Chaplin

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to travel and see the world. I love adventure, it was probably instilled in me from a young age by my parents, who would always whisk my brothers and I away on action packed trips across the States and later around Europe. Since then I've been very lucky to go on and travel many parts of Asia, Australia, the Caribbean and the Maldives.

Anna Corben

Traveling with my kids these days means trying to make sure everyone's boxes are ticked for our vacations. Luckily we all really enjoy all things nautical and a summer vacation wouldn't be the same for us if it didn't involve jumping off a boat into the sea at some point!

Anna Crowther

I don’t think there’s anything better than packing a bag, grabbing your passport and boarding a plane to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some incredible places in Europe & the Mediterranean as well as a little further afield.

Anna Hearn

Having grown up listening to stories of my grandmother’s childhood in Africa, I set out to explore the continent for myself. This eventually led to my running bush-camps in Zambia, before returning to the UK where I have been creating customized itineraries for sixteen years now.

Anna Bleasdale

Since joining Scott Dunn in 2007, I specialized first in the Indian Ocean and Caribbean and then for the last few years I've moved to specializing in North America. It’s a fascinating area of the world with amazing diversity from big cities to small towns, amazing scenery and wildlife - I return to again and again and always find something new to experience.

Anna Harlow

Originally from New Zealand, I always knew I wanted to venture over to the Northern Hemisphere at some point. This opportunity came in 2008 when I had saved up enough money to buy a one-way ticket to London. My idea was to spend two years working and traveling through Europe but plans change and nine years later, I am still here!

Anne Bamber

Europe has so many different countries to explore and is so easily accessible, both in travel time and for families or adventurous couples. It’s the perfect destination for me to sell, having always been a lover of languages and cultural nuances – I’m spoiled for choice with just one continent!

Annie Foot

A gap year spent in Tanzania kick-started my love for the African continent and I have returned at every opportunity since, including spending a year studying African politics in Stellenbosch, South Africa. I am always on the lookout for somewhere new to explore, but continue to return to old favorites - Cape Town and the Winelands in particular.

Ashling Mulkeirins

The best feeling for me is the night before a vacation when you can’t sleep because you're too excited counting down the last hours before you're off on a new adventure! Having traveled to so many beautiful and wonderful destinations across Europe I love the fact that I can create this feeling for my guests too!

Bella Collins

The urge to see the world must run in my blood: my mum left home when she was 16 years old to travel the globe as a scuba diving teacher (she returned home 16 years later!). Growing up in England, we spent every other Christmas getting under the skin of remote countries from Thailand to Tanzania, Morocco, India and Guatemala, with summers spent exploring Europe.

Blanche Sherman

Growing up in Portugal with family from Scotland, South Africa and Australia, traveling has been a part of my life since I can remember. I love experiencing and learning about new cultures, customs and languages, and very rarely return to the same spot twice. My favorite place to be is outdoors, whether soaking up sunshine while floating in the sea, or hiking up a mountain to enjoy the views.

Brian Wewege

Brian joined Scott Dunn in August 2015 having relocated, with his wife and 2 children, from sunny South Africa. He has spent the last 13 years with &Beyond, the leading luxury safari lodge and tour operator in Southern and East Africa, as well as South Asia, and was appointed IT Director in September 2010.

Bronwen May

My first experince of skiing was at the tender age of four, and unfortunately I can't say that I took to it like a duck to water. A few years later it finally clicked, and my love for skiing grew. I have since been lucky enough to ski in some of the best resorts that Europe has to offer! Val d'Isère is my firm favorite having completed two amazing seasons there!

Bryony Butler

I’ve always had a love for North America. Since I was a child, many happy vacations were spent alligator spotting in the everglades, chasing Mini Mouse for her autograph at Disney World and enjoying hot apple cider after a day’s skiing in the mountains of Massachusetts.

Camilla Greenwood

My love for travel started very early on, I remember being a young child and defiantly telling my parents that as soon as I got the chance I was moving away somewhere exotic. My love of experiencing new places and the cultures that came with them only grew with age and prompted me to study Spanish and Portuguese at University.

Camilla Swift

Other than several family vacations in various European countries whilst growing up, my first real opportunity to discover the soul of another culture was in my gap year at 18, when I spent six months teaching in a primary school in rural Mexico, and living with the friendliest of Mexican families in a small village.

Camilla Whitworth

I was born in the Philippines with parents who had a real passion for travel and a thirst for adventure. As a child I was taken trekking in the Himalayas on shaggy ponies, climbed volcanoes in New Zealand and sailed around the world. This enthusiasm to explore was installed in me, and from a young age I have always thought about the next place to visit.

Cammie Burke

I was first introduced to the world of travel at a young age by my grandparents. My grandmother made me keep a travel journal and every night I would write down everything I did that day. At the time it was a chore but now I look back and love reliving those memories. My passion for travel has only grown since then and I’ve been fortunate to travel and live in some amazing European destinations.

Charlotte Smith

My passion for travel began when I was taken to many different destinations as a child. This wanderlust has only increased with age and I now love visiting new places and am constantly asking myself "What is next on the list?"

Charlotte Boadle

For as long as I can remember, travel has been a great passion of mine - every time I go away, I come back with an even bigger list of destinations I want to go to next! Having been able to spend many vacations abroad with both family and friends, my love for travel developed further when I spent six months traveling around South America and South East Asia.

Charlotte Carter

I have a passion for travel and really enjoy visiting new countries. My time abroad at the University of Maine, USA combined with my summer in Pennsylvania at Camp America simply furthered my love of travel. I am also a keen skier and adore the stunning scenery and fresh air that can be found in the mountains.

Charlie Loughlin

Since doing a community project in Ecuador at the age of 17, I have been fascinated by the different cultures in our world. Since then I have traveled 6 continents exploring the diverse sights, sounds and tastes that are on offer. The continent that has held my interest is Asia, with its diverse lanscapes, delicacies and people, there is always something new to discover.

Charlotte Winter

Since living in the USA in my early childhood, I've always had a passion for travel and exploring the new. After finishing university, I packed my bags and went on a five month trip to South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand and had the most incredible time. Since working at Scott Dunn, I've had the opportunity to explore Indonesia, India and Australasia.

Cheska Lowe

Having long been afflicted with ‘wanderlust’, I have always loved to travel, and am most at home when I’m on the road, map in hand. I find that the more you travel, the longer your wish list gets, so you simply have to just keep exploring. My love for all things Latin stems from my parents for the most part, who lived for a number of years in Venezuela.

Chloe Henderson

From an early age I have been lucky enough to travel extensively due to my family and I having always been keen to visit new places. From spending family summers in Portugal’s most southern region, the Algarve, exciting ski breaks in Europe, North America & Canada, living and studying in Paris, backpacking in Asia, diving in the Red Sea and Mexico, to vacationing in Melbourne, Australia.

Claire Walker

My love of travel and exploring new places came from traveling to America to visit family from a very young age and also my Dad who traveled throughout the world with the Navy. As a child I spent every summer in the Mediterranean, so being a Mediterranean Specialist and sending families to picturesque resorts with sandy beaches and excellent food is just perfect.

Clare Leigh

I'll ski and snowboard in rain, hail and sub-zero temperatures, however, my belief that I was a lizard in a previous life has recently lead me to the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean and Indian Ocean!

As a watersports enthusiast and keen sailor, I've been lucky enough to work and play in the Greek Islands, British Virgin Islands and many of the other Caribbean Islands.

Claire Medlock

I've always had a passion for languages and different cultures - and growing up I always wanted to emulate my Mum’s exotic sounding travels. Time spent working in France and Italy left me convinced I had to incorporate travel into my career, whether it be through visiting bustling cities or venturing off the beaten track.

Daniel Smith

I worked in Pharmaceuticals until a Tag Rugby Tour to Uganda opened my eyes to travel. Since then I have traveled to the India Subcontinent, my specialist area, over ten times. Explored a good chunk of West Africa and spent 9 months exploring Latin America.

Daniela Bolivar

Being from Venezuela and working as a Travel Co-ordinator with the Latin America team makes me feel closer to home. It’s great to be able to talk to guests about how amazing this region of the world is and the myriad of sceneries, cultures and activities it offers.

Dominic Atterton

Somewhere on a deserted Mexican beach I worked out what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Since returning from my travels in Central and South America in 2004 I have never looked back and have been working hard to expand my knowledge of the best destinations and experiences that the world has to offer.

Ellen Fraser

When I was growing up in sunny Southern California, people were always very content with their surroundings, but since traveling to visit family when I was very young, I haven't been able to shake the wanderlust! My theory in life is that you will never know what city is the greatest in the world…until you see every city in the world! But the place I've fallen in love with most is Southeast Asia!

Emma Jones

I love travel that takes me off the beaten track and shows me places, people and cultures different to those that I can experience at home. I enjoy surrounding myself with new environments and immersing myself in new ways of life. Whilst being not a million miles from home, traveling throughout Europe has certainly allowed me to do this.

Emma Mark

My first trip to India over 10 years ago really instilled in me a deep passion for the sub-continent which keeps on drawing me back again and again. It’s my love of India and globetrotting in general that led me into the travel industry in 2009.

Emma Spence

With a background in finance and recruitment, Emma’s focus as VP Operations is very much on the engine room at Scott Dunn USA. Having been Finance Director and board member at Aardvark Safaris for nearly 20 years, Emma, along with husband John, joined the Scott Dunn management team in April 2016.

Felicity Hayes

Since learning to ski from the age of nine in Les Gets, I can safely say that mountain sports have become so ingrained in my life and work since then. Growing up I went on numerous family skiing vacations, as well as some great university ski trips to the Three Valleys and Espace Killy.

Faye Compton

I have always loved traveling, I was lucky enough to go on many family vacations to wonderful destinations from a very young age and the travel bug really embedded itself back then. Europe is such an amazing continent and great for all ages. I absolutely love Italy, with its stunning lakes and amazing history but a firm favorite of mine is Greece, it's hard to beat those crystal clear waters!

Fran Weekes

I have always had a huge interest in other countries and cultures, which only grew after living in Thailand teaching English. The huge wealth of diversity within one country, from the buzzing city lights of Bangkok to the mysterious beauty of Chiang Mai ignited my passion even more.

Gemma Dobson

I‘ve worked in the travel industry since 1995 and specialized in selling the Caribbean for many of those years. I love the Caribbean islands, the people, the culture and the laid back atmosphere.

Georgina Carlisle

Whoever said "There’s no place like home", in my view, could not be more wrong. I am very fortunate to have traveled to many countries as a result of my mother's wanderlust. Whether it be campervanning around New Zealand, soaking up the vibrant Cuban culture, drinking tea in the Sri Lankan Tea Plantations or carving up the pistes in Europe, I most certainly have the travel bug!

Georgina Robertson

I have always had a true passion for travel which first stemmed from the family vacations I was lucky to go on as a child. There is nothing I love more than getting immersed into new places and cultures. I took a 6 week tour of America during university which is when I really fell in love with everything North America has to offer from the stunning national parks to the bustling cities.

Grace Holton

After traveling the world post university, I planned on doing ‘just one’ ski season to get the wanderlust out of my system… this didn’t quite go to plan as my love for the mountains turned into a career and I ended up doing 8 seasons overseas in Austria, Italy and Greece. My favorite place to visit come sunshine or snow has to be Italy, mainly because of the food and the stunning scenery.

Graham Horner

Graham joined Scott Dunn in January 2014, following five years as Marketing Director at the Telegraph. With previous senior marketing roles at Coca-Cola and the Nectar Card, Graham has amassed a wealth of experience in media, customer loyalty and communications and is busy putting this all to work in growing the Scott Dunn brand.

Greg Salmon

My childhood was modest when it came to travel. The annual summer vacation usually consisted of taking a campervan down to Newquay or driving to a vacation park in France, which was interspersed with annual rugby tours to Europe at Easter. Since then, I have been lucky enough to travel to many far-flung destinations, seeking out new places and experiences on every trip.

Gwen Nicol

The youngest of three, I've always had the desire to fully experience life and be on-the-go. After graduating from college, my wanderlust led me to a summer of backpacking through thirteen countries across Europe.

Hannah Dawson

Some of my most cherished memories of growing up are of far flung family vacations. I will never forget my first vacation to Thailand as a child; the amazing culture, food and locals. From then on any opportunity I had, I would travel, whether that was exploring Europe in my university summers or working in America. I love that feeling of going to a new place, undiscovered lands and new experiences.

Hannah Fullagar

As a child I was lucky enough to be taken on regular vacations, which is where my passion for travel and true appreciation for the beach began. Everyday life back home just doesn’t compare to the excitement of exploring new places, meeting new people and making unforgettable memories.

Hannah Ingle

I have always been captivated by the rich art, history and monumental architecture which encapsulates the diverse culture that saturates Europe. My sense of adventure is relentless. Whether it be chasing the Northern Lights in Finland while driving a team of huskies, exploring the unique architectural palaces adorning India and Istanbul, or galloping through the Atlas Mountains on horseback.

Hannah Scott

My passion for the Mediterranean started at a young age when I was lucky enough to go on some great trips to different locations. My love for water skiing and wakeboarding pushed me to do a summer in Greece as an instructor which allowed me to fall in love with exploring lots of hidden gems.

Harriet Whitmarsh

My first love has always been wildlife so of course Africa was going to push all my buttons. I was lucky enough to find myself running tours in East Africa for 5 years as a primate specialist. In my free time, I of course took every opportunity to explore other parts of Southern, Eastern and Northern Africa and recently returned from a 4x4 road trip through Southern Africa.

Heather May

From a young age, skiing has been my strongest passion and has allowed me to travel in Europe and North America and I was fortunate enough to begin working with Scott Dunn when completing my ski seasons in St Anton and Val d'Isère. I went on to complete a summer season in Mallorca, working in our wonderful catered villas. I am now based in our California office as a Travel Co-ordinator.

Helen McKenzie

I’ve always loved traveling and other cultures, languages and landscapes which prompted a 6 month round-the-world trip when I was 18, a second trip round South America a couple of years later and a degree in French and English.

Hugo Snell

I was born in Australia and ever since then my love of travel has taken me all around the world. I have experienced back-packing in South America, heli-skiing in Whistler, VW Camper road trips around Europe, city breaks in Paris, Dubrovnik and Rome and many other amazing places. My passion for both skiing and golf keeps me busy regardless of the season!

Jack Mace

Travel has always been a huge part of my life. From a young age, whenever I was whisked away by my family, I was always fascinated at how each country offers you a completely new experience – the sights, the smell, the food, and most importantly the people. It wasn’t until my gap year when I spent five months traveling with friends, that I properly fell in love with Asia.

James Bescoby

Having grown up in Southern Africa I have a deep rooted love for the continent. It was not until I left, having lived there for fifteen years, that I realised how much I would miss my first home.

James Leet-Cook

Although I have been lucky enough to visit many places around the world, it is never enough and every time I go on a trip I come back with a few more destinations on my list to visit. I’m not the type of person who chills out by the pool all day; I like to stay active which is why I love skiing and surfing vacations.

James Robertson

Several seasons spent teaching sailing in warm sunny places cemented my love for living and experiencing different countries and people, so when the time came to come back to the UK, a career in travel was the only sensible option for me. My specialty is hunting down the very best beaches, hotels and experiences in some of the most beautiful locations in the world.

Jenny James

I have always been passionate about travel, especially skiing. I learned to ski at a young age, I was lucky enough to be introduced by my parents who encouraged me into ski school, despite my reluctance at times! I completed a season in Val d’Isere and ski instructed during University in Italy. Since then I have traveled to the US, Thailand and explored a large amount of Europe.

Jessica Campbell

For me it has never just been about simply traveling to a country, I really want to get to know the place - get under its skin. As a result I have now lived and worked in five different countries (the 5th being England which I cannot help but come back to each time). My most recent and most brilliant venture took me to India, more specifically Mumbai, where I lived and traveled in 2013.

Jessica Hayes

My interest or more appropriately obsession with travel started as soon as I was old enough to hold an Atlas, from the beaches of Bondi, to the Winelands of South Africa to the tree tops of the Amazon I have been fortunate to have traveled many countries and cover every continent.

John Spence

Once a white water rafting guide on the world renowned rapids of the Zambezi River, my first encounter with Africa was as a mixologist in a Cape Town cocktail bar. It was the beginning of a life-long love affair with the continent—a passion that has grown across countless journeys on horseback, by canoe, light aircraft, on foot, and behind the wheel of a car.

Julie Geyton

Traveling is in my blood and from an early age I traveled through Europe, USA and Asia. A visit to Cairo for my 18th birthday present kick started my love of the Middle East and ultimately led me to moving to live and work there. My passion still is in the Middle East but I have traveled all over Asia for both vacations and work.

Jules Maury

A child of ex-pat parents, I have lived all over the world with a particular emphasis on Hong Kong, Switzerland and in more recent years France, Australia, Vietnam and South Africa. I adore Europe, South East Asia, Africa and Australia.

Julian Ghinn

Julian joined Scott Dunn in November 2012 having previously spent most of his career in retail. After reading Business Economics and Accountancy at Southampton University, he qualified as an Accountant whilst working for Arcadia (then Burton Group) in 1989.

Juliet Morris

Coming from a family of airline pilots, I was lucky enough to start traveling at a young age. It was in 1998 that my independent travel began exploring parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America. I spent a few years working abroad as a Divemaster and Dive Instructor, and also working for a UK-based dive tour operator.

Karen Chapman

I’d always dreamed of visiting Latin America and seeing the famous sites such as Machu Picchu and Iguassu, after seeing them on the covers of the National Geographic magazines. I finally made it out there in my third year of university when I spent a year in Ecuador, studying, working and traveling around the country and through all of Central America.

Kate Newman

Originally from New Zealand, I have always been passionate about travel growing up exploring the Southern Hemisphere and of course my own backyard which I have to say is one of the most beautiful countries in the world!

Katherine Gotla

I LOVE vacations. I love planning them, saving for them, looking forward to them and going on them! The planning stage is the best - pouring over websites, TripAdvisor and hotel Instagram pages. Or asking friends and collegaues for advice and recommendations. I am more of a little-and-often kind of traveler with lots of trips planned at a time and always plenty to look forward to.

Katie Edwards

While a wonderful and slightly crazy month in Argentina sparked a life-long love of Latin America, the incredible diversity of Europe has remained a constant passion. Italy, with its beautiful lakes, varied countryside, exquisite food and magnificent architecture is a particular favorite.

Katie May

My passion for travel started when I spent two months traveling round Australia in my Gap year between school and University. Inevitably I took a second Gap year after Uni and traveled the world with my boyfriend (now husband). The idea was to "get it out of my system." Needless to say it didn’t work so when I came across the opportunity to work for Scott Dunn I jumped at the chance!

Kelly Connor

I was born with my feet itching, a restless soul diagnosed with a serious case of the travel bug. Having explored Europe with my family, from Christmas markets in Manchester to summer villas in the south of France, I'd always dreamed of going to Africa. When I did, I realised that the old adage holds true, that Africa gets under your skin, into your soul and just like that you’re addicted.

Kirsty Harper

My passion to travel has grown from being lucky enough to travel from a young age with my parents sharing their passion to explore different countries, from visiting the Great Wall of China in the snow, watching the sunrise over Machu Picchu and exploring the islands of the Caribbean I knew that working in the travel industry was for me!

Louisa Ross-Taylor

I fell under the spell of Africa at a young age when I heard stories of my mother's childhood living in Kenya and their adventures on safari. After a gap year teaching in Jamaica and then traveling round New Zealand and Australia, I studied Anthropology at University, which increased my fascination with foreign cultures.

Louise Brooks

From a young age I have seized every opportunity to travel the world, from building a school in Kenya as a school project to visiting family in Australia. My gap year was my first real taste of Asia, as expected a few months traveling in India was a real eye opener and I couldn’t wait to go back. I had officially caught 'the travel bug'.

Louise Canton

My first encounter with Asia began with a three month trip exploring the islands and beaches of Thailand. This sparked my fascination with the beauty of Asia and a curiosity about its wonderful cultures. I’ve since spent time exploring the islands of Indonesia, visiting the ancient temples of Cambodia, and venturing from the south to the north of Vietnam on a motorbike.

Louise Dragman-Renz

As a toddler I took my very first steps while walking up and down the aisle of an airplane somewhere over the Atlantic and I have continued traveling with that same wide-eyed excitement ever since. Growing up reading biographies about female adventurers gave me plenty of reasons to want to see places for myself.

Lucie Polwin

I first visited North America on a family road trip around New England taking in Boston, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. Since then I have enjoyed returning and exploring much more of the USA and Canada covering, California, Texas, Arizona, Las Vegas, Utah, Western Canada, Florida, Louisiana, New York, Virginia and most recently, Colorado.

Lucy Bailey

I have always been excited by travel, from family vacations in Europe and the Caribbean to adventures in more exotic climates. Egypt is my first love when it comes to ancient history and a luxury Nile cruise is one of my absolute travel highlights.

Lucy Dennis

The Mediterranean is perfect for a summer vacation; it combines warm climates, abundant culture, historical landmarks and the most exquisite beaches. I have spent so many family vacations in the Med, it offers everything you need just a stone's throw away! Croatia is a real favorite for me – indulge in delicious fresh fish, swim in cool blue waters and soak up the culture in Dubrovnik’s old town!

Lucy Hunt

My passion for traveling started at a young age, and after being quite spoiled with visits to European destinations nearby I turned my efforts to areas further afield such as Africa and America. That said my real love is the mountains and I especially love to ski. There is nothing I love more than being up in the mountains in both winter and summer.

Lyndsey Parker

My love of adventure began in high school when I visited Europe to play volleyball. From that point, I’ve seized every chance to explore that’s come my way. I've been lucky enough to travel extensively through most of Southern and Eastern Africa, being immersed in culture, wildlife and landscapes of Africa.

Maddie Lukes

I spent most of my time at university working and saving, waiting until I could finally go away traveling. When that day finally came, I got thoroughly overexcited and my planned six-month jaunt turned into me traveling and working abroad for just over two years! I started my adventure in South East Asia, and ever since I’ve had a soft spot for the magic and wonder of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.

Marianne Baring

Having been born and grown up in Chile, Latin America is in my blood. I love going back all the time and thrive off the laid back attitude, which makes a hectic London life seem so far removed. I love working with Latin America and discovering new destinations and places all the time.

Maudie Tomlinson

As soon as I had the opportunity to travel, I did. In school vacations I worked for a watersports company on the Greek Islands, before University I jumped on a plane to travel Asia by bus but my travel highlight was my two year ‘sabatical’ from my previous PR job through the Latin American continent.

Meg Shepro

I was lucky enough to be introduced to world travel at a very young age. I’ve now visited more countries than I’ve had years living on this fabulous planet! Five years ago I fell in love with Africa as I trekked for gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, bonded with local school children in Kibale, and witnessed 55 elephants migrating at sunset in Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Melissa Channe

After working in Cyprus as a Scuba Diver, I had to try the diving in the Caribbean. Barbados is an amazing and beautiful island and I immediately fell in love with it. The diving is second to none, the residents are friendly and helpful. There is plenty to explore and loads of activites to try. It's everything that I would want from a Caribbean island.

Michelle Smith

I first caught the travel bug when I did my first season for a water sports company in Turkey. I loved the lifestyle and soon discovered that I could work year round, spending winters in the snow and summers in the Mediterranean. After 5 seasons I decided to venture further afield and started saving for my next trip.

Mike Harlow

I started to get "itchy feet" when I decided to take a year off between Sixth Form and art college to experience the world of work. I lasted six months before I packed my bag and spent the next four months inter-railing and backpacking around Europe. This sealed the deal! I had to see as much as I could, and from there on I have traveled around the world.

Miles McConnell

Growing up in a tent with two safari guide parents in Kenya meant that I caught the bug for Africa early and never looked back. After finishing university I immediately headed back to Africa and spent three years working as guide all across East Africa. Where I spent my time on riding safaris in the Maasai Mara, quad biking in the desert and riding a motorbike from South Africa to Kenya.

Milly Walker

I have always been a keen traveler and was lucky enough to go to some pretty impressive places while I was growing up, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Nepal as well as France, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Spain and Switzerland. Each place I visit inspires me to see more, especially the off the beaten track areas.

Nicky Hazeldine

My love of travel started on my first backpacking adventure around Asia, Australia and New Zealand in my early 20's. I have worked in the travel industry for four years in the UK and Sydney, specializing in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Australasia.

Nicola Hatfield

Planning adventures, researching hidden gems and putting together lists are things I genuinely enjoy – so working as a Travel Consultant was a must! I grew up in Madrid, spent a year in Barcelona and have since traveled to Asia, Indonesia and Australasia, but the travel bug is still very much there! Discovering new cultures, cuisines and lifestyles is something I seek to continue exploring.

Oliver Evans

After a short stint as an investment banker, Olly came to do a season as a resort accountant in Courchevel 1850. He never left and, after many seasons as a Resort Manager and Operations Manager in France, he is now responsible for selection and contracting of our vacations as well overseeing the operation of our ski chalets, Mediterranean villas and childcare.

Olivia Caveney

I first realised my passion for travel at a young age being lucky enough to visit various countries vacationing in Sardinia, Italy, the Greek Islands, France, Spain, the US and Africa. This led on to stint of inter-railing around Europe visiting 15 different countries in my late teens.

Philip Vickers

I caught the travel bug when my parents moved the family to Zambia when I was a child. Since then, I have made it my business to travel to as many destinations as possible. I love the Middle East for its sheer dazzling diversity. From the glitz and glamour of Dubai to the understated luxury of Oman, there is really so much to offer.

Pippa Carey

Having been fortunate enough to travel a lot as a child, my absolute love of exploring new countries, cultures, sights and sounds led me to leaving my job in London and setting off on a round the world adventure. I was so lucky to see some incredible places, however I truly believe you can't beat Europe; we are so lucky to have such a diverse and beautiful continent, right on our doorstep!

Rachael Tickell

'Fill your life with adventures, not things'. What better statement to live by. My love for travel began sailing around the Greek Islands; discovering untouched coves, swimming in crystal blue waters and anchoring up at quaint villages to enjoy some delicious Greek Baklava! I'm always looking to visit new places, embrace different cultures and discover hidden corners of the world to explore.

Rikki Poynton

Ever since my first school trip to Russia when I was 13, I had always had a drive to travel more and explore new and exciting places. Backpacking all over Europe during university drove this passion even deeper and led to my decision to emigrate to Russia to teach and travel after graduation.

Sarah Clegg

My love of Africa stems from two experiences, my first safari in the Serengeti, when we arrived in Arusha and spent five days camping in the national park listening to the sounds of lions at night and wondering whether we would be better sleeping in the car! Then we borrowed a battered old land cruiser and based ourselves with family in Botswana and explored!

Sarah Lowe

My first footsteps in Latin America began with a stint living in Bolivia, which was such an incredible experience and I’ve been lucky enough to have explored Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador & Galapagos, Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Peru, Cuba, Guatemala, Belize and Panama since.

Sarah Matthews

I’m going to be honest, I usually prefer to see the world without compromising on my creature comforts! My travel experience varies from 5 star hotels in far-flung places to little hostels in the backstreets of Andalucia where I spent my sandwich year studying at University in Granada. Now with two small children in tow I have learned the hard way about what works when traveling with kids.

Sarah Rowan

It wasn’t until I turned 18 and worked four jobs for five months to fund a round the world back-packing trip that my passion for travel emerged. This trip took me from Australia, to New Zealand and then ending up in Fiji, only returning home when my funds dried up.

Sarah Worby

I have lived in Shanghai, worked ski seasons in France, swam with wild dolphins in Sri Lanka, trained horses in Western Australia, climbed to the top of Machu Picchu, taught English in Tanzania, eaten far too much pizza in Italy and have backpacked around Thailand more times than I would like to admit. For me, travel is about new adventures, exciting experiences and getting off that beaten track.

Scarlett Richard

I have always had a desire to travel and so as soon as university was over with, I was off to explore the world. Inspired by all things Latin, I left for South America, where I was lucky enough to spend 7 months exploring its vibrant cities, epic landscapes and heart-felt people. From then on, I was hooked and continued my travels to Asia and Australia.

Sebastian Perez

There are endless possibilities in the world of travel and I endeavour to explore as many of these in my lifetime as I can. Growing up half Spanish has given me a love of languages, family time and food. I have worked abroad for 7 years and I try to immerse myself with the local culture and traditions when visiting countries.

Serena Moore

I have always wanted to explore as many places as possible and love to travel off the beaten track. Growing up I was lucky enough to travel through Europe, spending time in Prague, Budapest, Italy, Greece and France to name a few.

Sian Frost

Very active family vacations when I was young really drove my interest in travel. I loved exploring the new places we visited, trying as much of the local food as I could and meeting people from different cultures. I really fell in love with Africa when I backpacked around South Africa with friends.

Simon Russell

Simon joined Scott Dunn in 2010 having spent the previous 2 years working in Africa and South America as a Director for leading luxury safari lodge operator &Beyond. He originally qualified as an Accountant but as CEO he is responsible for the entire Scott Dunn operation across the world, ensuring that every member of the Scott Dunn team is putting the guest at the heart of what they do.

Sonia Bungaroo

My love affair with travel began at a very early age, with my mother hailing from Spain and father's Mauritian roots, ensuring that we had frequent access to some of the most beautiful places in the world (under the pretense of "visiting family"...), and cementing my nomadic nature.

Sophie Levey

Safari has always been top of my wish list and from the first time I caught sight of a giraffe in the Selous Game Reserve I was hooked! I've been lucky enough to have lived in Tanzania and taken full advantage of all the country has to offer, as well as traveling further afield to Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and South Africa.

Tori Deely

Having lived just south of Munich for most of her childhood (with much time spent hurtling down mountains!), when Tori had the opportunity to join Scott Dunn in 2006 it was too good an opportunity to miss. Tori now heads up the HR department managing the recruitment and selection of all UK staff, induction and training, staff welfare and all HR related matters.

Tracy Stevens

You know that moment when you feel perfectly at home in another country, enchanted by the mix of the strange and the familiar? I live for that moment. After nearly a decade planning African safaris, I’m delighted to return to Europe, my former home and first love.

Victoria Douglas

I love the vibe of the Caribbean, the friendliness of its people and of course, its famed reggae and rum! With great family accommodation options, the Caribbean is an unbeatable destination for kids and as a mother of two children, aged 8 and 4, it is perfect for an adventure with little ones.

Victoria Hogg

I have always had an enormous passion for travel. This started at a young age, as a result of my mother’s Dutch heritage, where we would frequently drive through Europe to visit family in her home country. However, it wasn’t until I was a young teenager, that my love for the Far East began when I traveled half way across the globe to visit a school friend in Indonesia.

Victoria Reynolds

After graduating with a Geography degree, I decided to embark on a trip to Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I fell in love with the different cultures, foods and people that I met along the way. I decided to settle and live in Bali for three months, a surfer's and foodie's paradise, and it is here that I concluded that I wanted to dedicate myself to a career in travel, a huge passion of mine.

Victoria Langmead

My passion for Africa was ignited on an overland trip from Arusha in Tanzania to Victoria Falls in Zambia. Since then I've added Botswana, Kenya, Zanzibar, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia to the list. A PADI-certified Rescue Scuba Diver, I most recently dived in the exotic waters off of southern and northern Mozambique. One of my greatest achievements was to summit Kilimanjaro.
