But before we can do that, here’s just a little introduction to our dream team. Meet our director, John Holley.
John Holley grew up in Africa. His fervour for conservation and travel was ignited by a childhood spent travelling to the continent’s wilderness hotspots. As a student John spent every minute he could in the wild. Most of his youth was spent travelling and working as a horse safari guide in Kenya. He began his professional career by completing his chartered accountancy for global financial services firm KPMG. Eventually, however, John’s passion for travel and the call of the African wilderness lead him to Londolozi where he worked as a game ranger for two years. It was on one epic Londolozi safari that John drove Terri and her family and, through their mutual love and knowledge of Africa, they conceptualised Iconic Africa.
