Lianne is a passionate, out going person who loves ice-cream; craft gin and oysters ...oh and travel - in that order!
After many years of living, working and traveling around the globe ( India, South East Asia, Japan & South Korea and Australasia amongst others) she firmly believes in the words of J.R.Tolkien, "Not all those who wander are lost"....we simply still want to experience all this world has to offer.
Lianne grew up in the industry and travelled extensively with her family during her teenage years, mostly on safari with her father. He did not believe there was any other type of holiday except a safari so she spent nearly every holiday somewhere in Africa, usually in a tent with a bucket shower...not a lot of glamping was done! He would also whip them out of school so they could travel with him throughout Europe or the USA, paving the path to Lianne’s inevitable career in travel.
Spending time on safari is where she developed a passion and love for the African continent, different cultures, history and politics. Lianne is currently part of the team at We Are Africa, part of the Beyond Luxury Media family, whom she joined in June 2016 to head up Sales. Lianne loves nothing more than her country, this continent and she honestly believes that anyone who ever visits Africa will leave a piece of their heart here and that is why they will return time and again to visit!
