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, President of Scott Dunn USA, has been designing one-of-a-kind trips for guests 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.


Having been bitten by the Africa bug at a young age, Annie lives and breathes Africa having studied African politics at university she has explored the continent extensively with Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Mozambique and even little Swaziland under her belt. From walking with wild dog in Zimbabwe to canoeing on the Zambezi to snorkelling in the Bazaruto Archipelago to climbing Lion’s Head to watch the sunset over Cape Town – Annie’s list of favorite moments in Africa is ever-growing.
