Safari Guru Ashley grew up in South Africa. She spent much of her childhood travelling to various wildlife destinations with her family, including the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands and the Madikwe Game Reserve. This inspired a love affair with all things wild and natural, eventually leading her to study for a Diploma in Tourism Management as she desired a bush life.
On graduating, Ashley was employed and spent time at numerous safari lodges within most sectors, including managing entire properties. It was only a matter of time before her focus drifted to more remote and exciting wildlife destinations, and the Okavango Delta opened up a whole new world.
It was here, in Botswana, that Safari Guru founder Deon De Villiers first met Ashley and watched her progress and development in this specialist operating environment in very remote and trying conditions.
Having worked her way through several safari camps and lodges under the leading safari operator brand Wilderness, Ashley found her way into one of the World’s premiere wildlife destinations, Mombo Camp, regarded by many as the World’s best safari camp, including Travel + Leisure labelling it their Best Hotel in the World in 2013.
