I was born in Peru, came to South Florida when I was 5 years old and this has been home ever since.  I have worked in the safari industry for 10+ years and after experiencing my first safari in South Africa, I completely fell in love with Africa.  A safari is like no other trip: the people, animals, culture, food, and scenery make it an unforgettable experience.

I have returned to Peru many times to visit family and to explore this beautiful country.  I have also visited Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Bahamas, and Mexico.

As a family we are passionate about traveling and showing our two girls the world.  So far, we have traveled to Peru, and my husband and I then went to Machu Picchu for a few days and hiked up Huayna Picchu which was amazing!  This past summer we enjoyed a family vacation in Turks & Caicos.

In October this year, my husband and I went on safari in East Africa, which was extra special, as it was his first trip to Africa. Kenya is beautiful, and we were very fortunate to see the BIG 5, including the elusive Leopard which we got a super close look at, and a serval cat which are hardly ever seen! I was blown away with Kenya’s beauty along with the top notch cuisine in the camps and lodges. I cannot wait to go back on safari, and next time making it a family trip with my two little ones.

We stand by our service. To see what others have to say about Intrepid Expeditions:

  • Top notch. Simon and his team are phenomenal at their jobs, and put together an epic safari for my wife and I to celebrate our honeymoon. They worked with our agenda, made great recommendations, and helped us coordinate travel throughout the whole trip. Fantastic service and team.

Not only did we see many animals we also visited a village, ... read more

    Hey Simon,

    So sorry it's been so long to get in touch.

    We're still beaming from the trip! We can't say thank you enough for the incredible tour you organized. It was 5 star from the moment we opened the conversation with you. You and your team took so much care to get the details right and it was felt every exhilarating bump of the 4X4 track through the desert! The accommodations...

    I have recently returned from a safari adventure put together by Simon Gluckman and Intrepid Expeditions and could not recommend him or his company more highly. The arrangements, accommodations and even the animals totally exceeded my expectations. Simon took the time to learn about our interests, desires and budget and put together an itinerary that not only delivered but was almost flawlessly executed. When one minor... read more

    This was absolutely the most complete and well run excursion ever. Saw everything (except Rino), tour guides were excellent and expert and most accommodating. Camp was great, food the best and great staff!
    Wonderful four, full days. Highly recommend!

    We've just returned from two glorious weeks in Uganda and Rwanda. Simon Gluckman made our trip planning process fun and easy. We were looking forward to Gorilla trekking, and in "exploring" the region. Simon has significant expertise in Africa, and after carefully listening to our ideas, he came up with many wonderful suggestions.

    We experienced a Chimp Habituation Trek in the Kibale Forest National Park, game viewing by boat...

    I can’t begin to decide what made my 50th birthday trip, organized by Intrepid Expeditions, our best trip ever. Could it be the personal service? From the very beginning, Simon made sure he knew what we wanted and our expectations. He narrowed down each area we wanted to visit with three suggestions of lodging and let me research and pick. All spot on suggestions and we could not have been... read more
