Our speaker is Alexandra Giles who has spent 40 years exploring Southern Africa! UK born, Alexandra grew up in South Africa and Botswana, studied zoology at the University of Cape Town and worked in conservation in Namibia before moving into international IT consulting.  Over the years, Alexandra returned often to the region, drawn to the vast game reserves of the drier northern areas of South Africa.

Inspired by the benefit of sustainable tourism, and with a clear vision on local social upliftment, she set up Alexandra’s Africa in 2012 and works with local partners, suppliers and guides to showcase this beautiful off-the-beaten-track region, the nature, the wildlife, communities, art and culture – responsibly and respectfully. Alexandra is a keen photographer.

In 2017 she was accredited by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council and she is currently studying for a PhD in the field of Sustainable Tourism.

Her talk is about the challenges to wildlife as South Africa has emerged from the legacy of apartheid.



Thanks for lunch
