Dianne is an independent travel consultant who advises those interested in a trip to Africa and then crafts customized itineraries based upon a client’s interests. Dianne has tremendous experience in logistics, planning, and customer service. After graduating from Dartmouth College, she managed collections for McCormack & Dodge, delivered training for enterprise software and worked as an onsite consultant for Dun & Bradstreet Software. Looking for a new challenge, she left the corporate world to open a gourmet coffee shop in the suburbs of Boston. After successfully growing her business, she sold it and relocated to CT. She fell in love with traveling and specifically Africa in the next phase of her life when her family relocated again but this time to London. During her four years in England, she planned numerous trips for friends and family all over the United Kingdom, Europe, and Africa. She took pride in finding the lesser known places to visit or accommodations that brought people closer together through authentic cultural experiences. Upon returning to the USA, she continued her love for travel and planned trips to Ecuador, Galapagos, Thailand, Caribbean, Morocco as well as numerous safaris to South Africa and Kenya. Dianne and her family are hooked on the safari experience and absolutely love the bush! There is nothing that can compare to the experience of sitting in the presence of such amazing animals. To say that it’s a moving experience is an understatement! Dianne combines her expertise working with customers, multitasking, and logistics with her incredible love for travel and continues to inspire more people to visit Africa and create memories that will last a lifetime. She looks forward to working with you in the planning of a safari that best suits you and your family’s interests, needs and budget. Once a trip is finalized, Africa Direct of South Africa processes clients’ payments and makes deposits to confirm itineraries. Dianne and Africa Direct USA do not receive or process any client payments. Dianne is available as the clients’ resource for information and questions on their itinerary until they travel. Africa Direct USA and Africa Direct of South Africa are entirely separate entities.
