About John Spence

Once a white water rafting guide on the world renowned rapids of the Zambezi River, John’s first encounter of Africa was as a mixologist in a Cape Town cocktail bar. It was the beginning of a life-long love affair with the continent—a passion that has grown across countless journeys on horseback, by canoe, light aircraft, on foot, and behind the wheel of a car.

John founded Aardvark Safaris in 1999, which recently merged with Scott Dunn Travel, and has been designing one-of-a-kind trips for clients all over the world ever since. His love of Africa and adventure is infectious so whether you want to know where to find tree-climbing lions in Uganda and Tanzania, spot endangered black rhino in Kenya, or find out the most important thing to pack on your Kilimanjaro climb, John is your ultimate Africa resource.

About Lyndsey Parker

Outdoor adventure advocate Lyndsey is a Southern Africa specialist having traveled extensively through Malawi, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa. She’s quad biked through the Kalahari, swum in Devil’s Pool, and spied lions on game drives through Botswana. In June she’ll be running in the Safaricom Marathon in Kenya to benefit conservation charity, Tusk.
