Sarah Slocomb, Regional Specialist for Latin America the Middle East
“I have worked in the travel industry for over 10 years; starting off with an apprenticeship in a travel agency, which earned me an NVQ qualification in Travel Services. Since joining Explore I’ve enjoyed every second. I started off working in the groups department before moving over to the Tailormade team, and I have had the opportunity to travel to some fantastic places across several continents; my adventures in the Middle East and Asia being some of my favourites. A few of my most memorable experiences would be sleeping under the stars in the White Desert in Egypt with just me and a sleeping bag, exploring the old city of Ghadames in Libya; now an UNESCO world heritage site, floating in the Dead Sea in Jordan, and last but no means least,  snorkelling in the Maldives!"



Sarah Phelps, Regional Specialist for Africa
"Perhaps the most unique country I have visited is Ethiopia – it surpassed all my expectations. The influence of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church transports you back to the world of the Old Testament and the culture and traditions date back over 3000 years. Throw in the stunning Simien Mountains , the ‘Camelot Castles’ of Gondar and the endearing local people and you have a truly fantastic holiday. My advice is to get there soon before it catches up with the rest of the world!

I’ve yet to explore Uganda and the magnificent Mountain Gorillas.  This would be next on my list"

Samantha Manning, Regional Specialist for Asia

"I have always loved to travel. Being born in Canada gave me the chance to see more of the world then the average toddler, and I suppose my love of travel and adventure began from there. I’m extremely lucky to have visited many countries and continents and they all hold a special place in my heart. After a fantastic six month trip around South America in 2015 I realised that I had to have travel in my life full time and went on to find a happy home here at Explore. The best advice I could give new travellers would be to embrace the madness, if it pushes you out of your comfort zone, it is probably well worth the effort.

“My childhood holidays generally involved travelling around the USA visiting colonial towns and civil war sites. With no accommodation booked, we would see where the wind took us and it’s thanks to my intrepid parents that I have the travel bug! My first exotic holiday was to Cuba, followed closely by a seven-month backpacking stint in South East Asia. I loved Asia so much that after a short return home, I set off again for India.  I worked for the groups reservation team for over five years as a Senior Customer Services Executive. During this time I was lucky enough to do the China Highlights, Greek Cruise and Walking la Gran Isla tours. My travel experiences also include Colombia, Morocco, Malawi and Zambia, Costa Rica and Panama; however my current favourite has to be an overland tour in Jordan and Egypt. Despite the unrest in Cairo, the people were so friendly and the stunning sites of Jerash and Petra, and seeing Tutankhamun’s mask, more than made up for it.”
