Our Team

Luci Pham Secret Africa


Once Luci completed her university business degree, she did as all good Aussies do – moved to London. The experience changed her perception of life completely so going back to the sleepy town she called home was no longer an option. From there she has lived in Toronto Canada, Sydney Australia and now calls Cape Town home. From her very first safari experience in the Pilansberg National Park, Luci has been hooked on the thrill of the Landcruiser, never knowing what is in store once setting off on that day’s game drive. You won’t find anyone more excited (or jealous) for your African adventure than her.


Nicole was born and bred in South Africa’s Freestate Province. It wasn’t long before she set her sights on bigger things, seeing her travelling to over 60 countries. Nicole has always had a love for travel and worked in the travel industry for over 12 years. She is a keen animal lover and tries to get to the bush as often as possible. Fun fact- Nicole also works as a professional photographer!

Janine Krook Secret Africa

She currently lives in Cape Town and spends all of her free time enjoying the outdoors. Whenever she is able, she heads off on a road trip through South Africa with her husband and daughter experiencing all of the amazing things this country has to offer: the mountains, beaches, wildlife reserves and more.

Clyde Thomas Secret Africa
