Born in Malawi and raised in the UK and Australia, Sarah has now been working in conservation areas in Africa for 10 years. Sarah has spent the last eight years as Tourism and Marketing Manager in Akagera. Prior to this, Sarah was in Malawi for two years doing similar work at Majete Wildlife Reserve. Sarah graduated with a BA in Design and has several years of experience working in hospitality, forming a basis for much of her tourism development work; training tourism staff, creating marketing material and designing tourism infrastructure in Akagera, including Ruzizi Tented Lodge. Sarah hopes Akagera will be seen as a model for sustainable tourism development.
