Even though I was born in Germany, my heart lives in Africa. I moved here 26 years ago, so I’ve basically spent half of my life here! That’s why I’m so excited to present the iconic sites and hidden gems of my adopted homeland to travelers on Around the World: The Ultimate Journey and Best of Africa: South Africa, Zimbabwe & Botswana.
I’ve traveled to more than 50 countries but the African bush and the culture here continues to amaze me every day. My greatest passion is wildlife, and observing animals in their native habitat and teaching others about these creatures is the most rewarding job I could ever ask for. My favorite destinations are Chobe National Park in Botswana, and Victoria Falls, which is featured on both Around the World and Best of Africa (although majestic Table Mountain is another brilliant experience, too!). Needless to say, these places lend themselves to excellent photography and birdwatching experiences, which I love to share with Vantage travelers.
I’ve worked at Vantage for nine years, and feel so privileged to guide the unforgettable adventures of so many American travelers who are excited to be immersed in destinations across the globe. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, too, and spending time with my family and friends.
NEW! CONCIERGE SERVICE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND

This new service is available to all travelers, no matter what cabin category or flight class you’ve reserved (making us the best among other deluxe travel companies!). Whether you want to plan an anniversary party, want to track down a bit of your family’s heritage in China, or organize an intimate pub crawl for your multigenerational group of family and friends in Ireland, your Vantage Concierge is just the person to make your travel dreams come true. Simply log in to My Portfolio and submit a request or send a pre-trip request to Concierge@vantagetravel.com up until two weeks prior to departure and you'll have your answer from our overseas Concierge within five business days.
Regional Experts Enrich Your Discoveries
No one knows a destination better than an insider, so in addition to your Adventure Leader, you’ll enjoy the services of experienced, English-speaking Regional Experts in select locations during your included excursions. Their deep command of regional history will certainly enrich your viewing of important attractions. But our “insiders” go a step beyond, sharing insights on behind-the-scenes aspects of local culture that ordinary tours usually overlook. How do families in this area get by? What are some of the local legends? What do the decorations on a particular house mean? Your Regional Expert is eager to bring it all alive for you.
