I've joined a company based here in the UK (but operating worldwide) that specialises in tailor-made trips to East and Southern Africa. In the interests of transparency, I've updated my profile and I thought I should post this update. There are several other regular posters who are tour operators and travel agents and whose views are respected, so I hope I can join their ranks!
I'll continue to post to TA when I have the time. The properties I’ve selected for the new programme I’m setting up are the ones I’ve rated most highly over the last few years – mostly small, eco-friendly and well-managed, with positive links to the local community. I'm not on commission – I get paid exactly the same whatever I sell. And I will continue to write my travel guide to Kenya as I have for the last 25 years.
I hope this hasn’t overstepped any TA boundaries, but I know a lot of TA users rarely check profiles.
