Just a note about the love I share for Africa as a destination.  You can read more of my story and see a short video here.  Find out how I found myself in Africa. (It is said, we wander for distraction, we travel for fulfillment…I had been wandering but now I travel to Africa and that has fulfilled my life immensely).  It’s been a journey of self discovery, focused on the aspect of living each day to the fullest, .  It’s provided me with meaningful experiences and soulful enthusiasm.  Most importantly, Africa has revealed so much of what I want others to feel, to share and to enjoy.  It’s a spiritual rejuvenation, filled with emotion, that offers unending inspiration, and inspires others to feel what I’ve always felt from my first time in Africa and certainly the more than fifty times to Tanzania.  For the full and complete video, please click on this link: Find Yourself in Africa: My Story to Yours

Safari Kay:  The passion behind Destined To Travel

Kay has been in the travel industry for over twenty-five years, specializing in African safaris for the last ten years.  The spiritual journey that started in 2006 created a passion that led her to found Destined To Travel, LLC in 2008, of which she is president.  She has traveled to Africa over four dozen times and taken nearly as many groups.  She is the tour leader and escort for most of the safaris or meets groups on location.  This ‘adventivity’ (creativity and adventure), combines a sense of creative energy with a sense of adventure.  A trip to Africa appeals to ones’ inner harmony, an enthusiasm, a spiritual rejuvenation, and a greater understanding of life in a third world country. It is a soulful journey for those who make the opportunity to experience it.  Enriched by years of wisdom, insight, and energetic achievements over these past ten years has led to the Make A Difference safari, in support of the local Leaders of Tomorrow Children’s Home.  Destined To Travel’s guests have made it possible for these disadvantaged smart young adults to complete their educational journey.
