ABOUT US

Outbound in Africa has travelled to all the destinations we specialize in. Often spending quite a few weeks a year testing out the luxurious safari lodges to the rustic adventure camps, walking safaris to the Cape Winelands. This allows us to make sure the standard is kept to a high and we can guarantee to offer a little bit of Africa to suit each and every one of our travellers.

Scottish-born Lucy moved to South Africa in 2007. Trained as a chef, she traded the kitchen for the stables when she volunteered at a lodge specialising in horse riding safaris in the Greater Kruger area. She was well and truly bitten by the African bush bug and went on to manage an exclusive lodge in Thornybush Nature Reserve. Following the call of the wild, she freelanced all over South Africa and Botswana as a relief manager and chef.

She’s built up an incredible range of experience and knows just what guests expect on the hospitality front. She has fantastic working relationships with a number of lodges in Botswana and the Greater Kruger area. Super organised, she handles all enquiries, reservations and logistics for our clients.
