Wilderness Linyanti Tented Camp 4 - Ganders Travel


Founder, Lucinda Rome, has specialised in African and Indian Ocean travel for nearly two decades. Her deep connection with the region started when she scaled Mt Kilimanjaro for charity and took a safari in Kenya’s Masai Mara 20 years ago.

Her love for the continent was born and a few months later she moved to Zambia to work in remote bush camps, supposedly for five months.  Four years later, having worked for two of the premier safari operators in Zambia, she came home after a 15kg sausage fruit fell on her wrist. She immediately turned her attention to planning bespoke holidays to all of East and Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean and has travelled extensively throughout the continent ever since.

My background running safari camps, coupled with extensive travel throughout Africa has given me a deep understanding of the nuances of each destination, the local cultures, the wildlife, and the intricacies of planning various types of journeys. I have strong relationships with a trusted network of partners and would be delighted to help plan your next holiday adventure.
