For 30 years Sydney-based public relations operator David Baker & Associates, a travel industry specialist consultancy, has been taking Australian journalists on familiarisation tours of southern and east Africa to publicise the wildlife, cultural and scenic aspects of those regions as a holiday destination for all Australians.
Over the last 15 years most of those expeditions have been organised by Fiona Hay who is now the principal at 318Africa.
Invariably, the journalists taken on those tours have returned to write positively about what they saw and pay credit to Fiona for the way she arranged their tours.
David Baker, personally, has escorted maybe 40 or 50 such groups over three decades and maintains that Fiona Hay is without peer in Australia as an organiser of safari holidays in Africa, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and the islands of Mauritius, Madagascar and Zanzibar.
Talk to her last before you book an African holiday!
