|Sarah Slocomb, Regional Specialist for 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!"
|Anneli Rudiger, Regional Specialist for Africa
“I was born in the South Africa and grew up in Namibia...so needless to say Africa is a part of me! From summer rains to endless starry nights, rough camping to game drives, sleeping mats to luxurious lodge beds, I love Africa in every way. I have always worked in tourism, having started my career working in a lodge near my home, then working for inbound operators back in Namibia. I came to the UK to travel and see “what’s out there” but got straight into tourism again. I've travelled to various African countries such as Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa and still enjoy going back to see my family on a regular basis to recharge.”
|Hannah Cuss, Product and Customer Service Executive
“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; 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.”
