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.

Janine Krook Secret Africa


Janine is a South African local who grew up spending her vacation days in Kruger National Park, where her family had a holiday home. Her African travels have taken her on safari in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and Tanzania; gorilla trekking in Uganda; and to the beautiful island destinations of Mauritius, Zanzibar, Lamu, Bazaruto archipelago, the Quirimbas, The Maldives, The Seychelles and Madagascar. 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.

Claire Secret Africa


Having Africa in my blood, born in Zimbabwe and raised in South Africa, I have a deep rooted passion for sharing this incredibly magical continent with travelers from across the globe. I thrive on tailoring bespoke and custom made travel experiences for each individual who wishes to set foot on our sunny shores.

I get to share not only my passion for the continent with my fellow travelers but relish in their excitement and inevitably travel vicariously through them too. Best job in the world!

South Africa is my home. I have lived here all my life from the City of Gold to the fair Cape and I find myself nestled along a most beautiful stretch of indigenous forested coastline, the famous Garden Route which calls all to explore her adventure-filled paths through thick forest and over rocky shores. Come explore with me at Secret Africa and uncover it all for yourself.

Clyde Thomas Secret Africa


Clyde was born just outside the Kruger National Park and lived at Londolozi until he was 5, where his father was a guide and tracker for over 8 years. He developed his love of the bush at a very early age and often dreamed of being a safari guide. He qualified as a FGASA 1 safari guide and apprentice trail guide through EcoTraining in his 20s. On the weekends you’ll find Clyde paddling his surf ski in Cape town’s cool Atlantic waters, or hiking Table Mountain with friends.
