Eli Hardcastle

Eli's love of South America started with an incredible trip to the Galapagos islands, it was only natural that she'd head to the white continent in search of penguins!

"My trip to Antarctica still feels like a dream to be honest – it is another world and truly a once in a lifetime. My favourite part about the destination was seeing penguins in the wild, they are so clumsy and hilarious!"

Grant Greenham

After first travelling to Latin America as a 19 year old, Grant quickly became addicted to the vibrant culture, friendly people and diverse landscapes the continent has to offer. Fast forward to the present, and he has lived in Chile and clocked up over 2 years of travel to almost every country from Mexico to Argentina.

Julie Norton

I took my first international trip to Ireland when I was 17 and have been excited about exploring new places ever since. Every time I travel I like to go somewhere drastically different from the last trip. From cities skyscrapers to jungle treehouses there are so many types of experiences waiting to be had.

Lauren Duran

My love for the ocean has brought me to travel to beautiful places all over the world. As an avid surfer I always find it so incredible that I have found myself in some of the most remote places, connecting with the most interesting people and the power of the ocean has all brought us there together.

Leigh Sassone

As a native New Yorker my passion for traveling and culture has ultimately taken me far beyond the five boroughs. Traveling to 40+ countries - yes, I’m keeping count - that passion has yet to cease. As a teenager, spending summers in Ireland with family friends I immersed in the spectacular forty shades of green kissing the Blarney Stone and forever with the gift of gab.

Paul Connolly

"Kayaking with Beluga Whales was spectacular. Beluga whales are known for their inquisitive and friendly nature, taking to the water in their natural habitats enables close encounters – truly breath-taking."

Adam Ang

I can't think of anything better than packing a rucksack and venturing off to somewhere new and unknown. I love sharing my travel experiences with fellow travellers, sharing top tips and highlights for our next trips. My most memorable trip was with my Mum in Europe which I designed myself. Lasting 38 days, it was a mini 'Grand Tour' which had my Mum smiling for days!

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.

Andre Rickerby

Andre is the Chief Marketing Officer at Scott Dunn, leading on all aspects of marketing with a particular emphasis on further building-out digital marketing, overhauling CRM as well as continuing to take the brand forward after 30 years of growth.

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 tailor-made 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 holidaymakers, they are our guests.

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.

Boris Quillard

Growing up next to a ski resort in the French Alps, sports and travel have been a passion since young and that is what got me travelling around Europe and stepping foot into hospitality. Now I can’t wait to share with you my love for travel, adventure and food. It would be my pleasure to take you on a holiday to discover the amazing off-the-beaten-path destinations, scenic hiking trails, intimate

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.

Bryan Li

Getting off the beaten track is what I desire most when travelling. Seeking out the most unique corners of the world, experiencing different cultures and landscapes.

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.

ChenKang Hsu

Growing up in a nomadic household, traveling is a rite of passage for me. Born in Taiwan and raised in Singapore, I completed my tertiary education in the United States, where I caught the holiday-planning bug.

Chris Mok

Travel is more than seeing of sights, it is a lifetime memory that goes on forever. My favourite travel experiences are Iran and Central Asia (including Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan). They are filled with spectacular mountain landscape, architecture, Islamic culture and most importantly they are one of the friendliest people.

Cindy Wong

With my ten years of experience in travel, I still feel thrilled every time I think about the next adventure. And after every place I have visited, I would come back home feeling changed; redefined.

Claire Acker

Traveling the world is in my DNA. When I was younger, I would wander off from my family to follow the sound of exotic music or foreign language in the street.

Connie Kee

Being able to travel is one of life's privileges. From a young age I knew I wanted to travel to as many destinations as I could to witness spectacular scenery and experience unique cultures.

Connie Ngai

“Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times” is the motto that motivates me to spend much of the time on the road.

Diming Wu

At university, my passion for travelling inspired me to take up tourism and hospitality management as a specialisation. Having spent a wonderful time in Paris as an exchange student which broadened my horizon I knew that a travel related career was the one for me.

Elizabeth Coffey

Irish by birth, I first came to Asia on a three month backpacking trip in 2008. Eleven years later and I’m still here! It’s fair to say that I have completely fallen in love with the region and its fascinating mix of cultures, stunning scenery, bustling megacities and tantalising culinary experiences.

Emilie Mounier

After a 6 month backpacking trip over South America and South East Asia in my twenties, and later relocating to Asia for work purposes, I understood that I could feel at home just about anywhere on the planet!

Emma Spence

Evelyn Soong

‘To travel is to live’ – this verse motivates me a lot. Travel inspires us to enjoy life and to live it to the fullest. Our life becomes richer, more beautiful and I am always looking forward to it.

Georgina Carlisle

Whoever said "There’s no place like home", in my view, could not be more wrong. I am very fortunate to have travelled 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!

Irene Ng

Being born and raised in Hong Kong, surrounded by high-risers, my first safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park was an eye-opening experience for me. Despite the long drive and multiple flights to connect to this remote corner of the world, the space of the open savannah and the closer encounter with wildlife make it worthwhile.

Isabella Yeung

It was my holidays with my mum growing up that drove my passion for travel. Even through I grew up in Asia it is still one of my favourite continents to visit. The landscapes are vast and unique, whilst the people are some of the friendliest I have ever met.

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. Every time I go on a trip I come back with a few more destinations on my list. I’m not the type of person who just relaxes by the pool all day - so I tend to plan my trips around activities. My favourite of which are surfing, sailing and hiking.

Jess Yap

I began my career in the travel industry more than 15 years ago and have never looked back. I started my earlier years in the travel industry embarking on hiking trips in the Himalayas and camping out in the Africa wilderness. These are some of my most cherished moments which I still hold dear after so many years.

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.

John Taker

John joined Scott Dunn in April 2019 having worked in the Travel and Tourism industry for the past 30 years in a variety of Operational, Product and Purchasing roles including, Purchasing Director at Virgin Holidays, Vice President Sourcing at Kuoni / GTA and most recently as Purchasing Director at Emirates / dnata based in Dubai.

Jules Maury

A child of ex-pat parents, I have lived all over the world from Hong Kong to Switzerland and in more recent years France, Australia, Vietnam and South Africa. Having sailed up the coast of Australia and across the South Pacific, driven through Europe, explored Africa, wandered through Asia, I love the excitement of new experiences and different cultures.

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.

Kok Yong Lim

Latin America and Middle East are two places where I will visit again and again, for the captivating scenery and rich local culture. It gives me joy planning a holiday to such destinations where it’s still very much unexplored, topping with a little mystery and a little adventure.

Liyana Yusoff

Born and raised in Singapore, I was blessed with an ideal base to travel around the world which I am very passionate about. For me travelling is a way to learn and experience life through different cultures while pushing myself to step outside my comfort zone.

Louen Tang

The pursuit of good hiking and delicious cuisine has taken me to many different places in the world. When I plan a holiday, I am always on the look out for accommodation with a unique character, dishes created with fresh, local ingredients and most importantly, a schedule that allows you to appreciate the beauty of a destination.

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 travelling round New Zealand and Australia, I studied Anthropology at University, which increased my fascination with foreign cultures.

Mike Harlow

My own travel experience has moved on from my days back packing through India, South East Asia, Australasia and the USA. However travel in whatever mode, if taken with adventure in mind is always a fulfilling and enriching experience!

Ming Wong

There is nothing I love more than sharing the little stories from my travels with others. It's so enjoyable sharing tips and learning what others have got to on their adventures around the world. I always like to share these top tips with my guests to ensure they have the very best holiday.

Oliver Evans

Pat Choi

I strongly believe that travelling and seeing the world is the best way to collect lifelong memories of amazing experiences.

Ria Santamaria

As a former banker married to a finance executive, I know full well that every holiday time is incredibly precious. I learned to plan my holidays to maximize every experience, create bonding moments with our two sons wherein we could discover the world and its myriad cultures together. I grew up in Manila, raised my family in Singapore and spent a three-year post in London.

Prior to this, he was CFO of OB10, the global electronic invoicing network, which was acquired by Tungsten Corporation.

Sheena Seah

I have always aspired to travel more extensively to exotic destinations. My idea of a perfect holiday would be one where I get to interact with the locals, immerse myself in their culture and indulge in local cuisine. One day I hope to dive with whale sharks and visit Africa to assist in charitable work.

Shyh Jie Chong

I live to travel, and aim to visit as many countries as I can across the world, so far i'm up to 50 which I think is pretty good but there are many more to go!

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.

Tahir Taib

Theng Hwee became the CEO Scott Dunn Asia in 2018. He started a travel business (Country Holidays) in 1994 after a short stint with a bank.

Thi Ta

Realising that Vietnam was too small to contain my passion for travel, I moved to work at Angkor Wat, Cambodia for 3 years before embarking on a new chapter working as a Travel Consultant. Since then, the stamps and visas in my passport has increased many folds.

Vicky Yim

It was when I lived in the UK for a short period during my secondary school years that I fell in love with the region’s rich culture and history. With the warm sun and perfect weather, summer is my favourite time to travel in Europe. I particularly enjoy conversations with the locals, trying new experiences, and looking for great local wines…

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.

Winnie Sum

I chanced upon the "7 Wonders of the World" when I was in my late teens. Mesmerized by the magnificent ancient monuments featured in the book, I decided to venture out on my own journey of discovery.

Xinying Lin

I love everything about travel, from the excitement in the planning stage to the anticipation and thrill when you finally reach your chosen destination. Europe is my dream destination as it has so much to offer including incredible food.

Yong Kang Tan

I've always been drawn to the more 'off the beaten track' destinations, in particular Africa. It's a destination unlike any other which keeps me coming back for more. Without a doubt one of the most incredible sights I have witnessed was the migration herds of the Serengeti.
