Suzaan Nel

Suzaan landed in the travel and tourism industry by chance in 2006, and years later, is still thrilled to be part of this exciting industry. She started at Giltedge Africa in 2013 and considers herself very fortunate to be part of a company that is committed to providing clients with the very best experience.

For her, Africa is a land of contrasts with a rich mix of cultures, incredible scenery and wildlife-filled reserves, and it’s a real passion to create dream holidays to this spectacular continent. Suzaan has travelled through most of Southern and East Africa, experiencing too many amazing things that it’s impossible for her to choose just one favourite.

What’s been your favourite safari experience?

I have so many amazing memories of incredible safari experiences, but one that stands out is our family safari to the Sabi Sands in South Africa. It was such a rewarding experience watching my daughter having the time of her life on safari, spotting the big and small wild animals. A family safari is an unforgettable experience!

Pick one place in Africa that’s forever in your heart?

A tough question so I’ll have to pick two destinations! The Serengeti’s annual great Wildebeest Migration was undoubtedly the greatest wildlife spectacle that I experienced.

My second favourite place is the lodge Angama Mara in Kenya’s Masai Mara. The breathtaking views over the plains from every angle of this camp are spectacular! Everything about this place is amazing. The hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara was a memory that will last a lifetime!

Top tip for clients?

When you’re on a game drive, take some time to put away your camera, and just enjoy the sightings because you will remember them forever.
