My name is Lotte, and I am your luxury travel designer. Growing up in the Netherlands, travel was always a key element of my life. As I explored further afield, I was quickly captured by Africa and how the joy of discovering these different countries and cultures can nurture a person’s soul.
I had to share this feeling with others and started working in tourism from a young age, almost 20 years ago. In 2017 I opened up my own boutique, luxury travel agency in the Netherlands called ‘Safari Design’, and committed myself to crafting extraordinary experiences across Africa, carefully tailored to my individual clients to ensure that each trip is a trip of a lifetime.
In this role, Africa became my second home, but in March 2020 I finally took the plunge and moved permanently to the beautiful Malawi. I will guide you through the possibilities and tell you about my favourite places in Africa. I focus on luxurious boutique lodges in unspoiled and uncrowded destinations for the most enjoyable and enriching experience.
Thanks to my years in the business, I have built long-lasting relationships on the ground, ensuring ultimate reliability and exceptional service throughout your trip. My promise to you is that I only work with the best people and places that I trust and recommend wholeheartedly, guaranteeing you a superbly seamless vacation.
Food plays an important part in any vacation, but why not bring it to the forefront of your travels and sample an array of delicacies every step of the way.
