Introducing Southern Africa Guru, Sally Moon!

New Frontiers Tours is pleased to welcome Sally Moon to our team in Durban! Sally will be assisting our team of consultants with her in-depth Southern Africa product knowledge. With nearly 25 years of experience in the Southern Africa safari business, Sally is certainly one of the region's true experts.

Always passionate about travel Sally joined Abercrombie & Kent in London in 1987. This was on the understanding that if she was ever offered a job in Africa she would be on the first plane out!!! Her dream came true and in July 1989 when she left the UK for Johannesburg to join Afro Ventures, a small but highly respected mobile safari operator. One of the pioneers of tourism to Botswana Afro Ventures were soon offering tailor made fly-in safaris as well as camping safaris throughout south and southern Africa.

In 2000 Afro Ventures merged with Conservation Corporation Africa where Sally was Product and then Reservations and Product Director responsible for the tour operating division. When Phillip Lategan, who was originally responsible for Sally joining Afro Ventures, decided to start Journey Beyond in 2002 Sally was an obvious partner. From 2002 – 2010 Sally was a shareholder and Product Director at Journey Beyond. Sally is passionate about product and feels privledged that she has been part of such a dynamic and constantly changing industry that is full of wonderful people.

Seeking a change of scene Sally moved to Durban and has now joined New Frontiers as their southern African product “guru”. Looking to create a unique itinerary for your experienced Africa travelers, an extra-special honeymoon safari or a true adventure safari for those travelers looking to get way off the beaten path? Sally is your gal.
