Born in Zimbabwe, Viv Craig imparts a wealth of knowledge and expertise of the 'dark' continent, having lived in Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Mozambique and visited many other parts of Africa, before settling in Australia. She has intimate knowledge of southern Africa as many of her friends and clients who have subsequently visited that enthralling travel destination will testify. Having personally visited South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique she is ideally positioned to prepare an exciting adventure for any of her clients.
Viv has also travelled extensively in the East African countries of Kenya and Tanzania (including climbing Kilimanjaro, and visiting Zanzibar) and has explored the North African countries of Morocco and Egypt, as well as Jordan and Israel.
Viv lived in the Bowral district of NSW for 30 years (but now lives in the Milton/Ulladulla region), and has been involved in the local travel industry for at least 20 of these. Viv has attracted many loyal clients during this time because she is able to provide personalised service based on her own wide-ranging travel experiences - she has travelled around the world extensively with her family, and on travel 'educationals', visiting over 90 countries for first hand knowledge which she is able to share with her patrons.
Within the South African travel industry Viv has completed her training as a 'FUNDI agent', someone regarded as an specialist on that country. Fundi means expert in the Nguni language, one of the many languages spoken there. This training added to her personal knowledge of travel through South Africa. As a Fundi agent, Viv has passed a comprehensive destination course providing her with extensive knowledge of travel and tourism in South Africa. She has visited many parts of this beautiful country at different times and knows from first-hand experience the people, the culture, and the exciting destination.
