Bridget was born and grew up in Durban, South Africa but always had a sense of adventure, which lead her to live in America after finishing school to au pair. Upon returning home she was drawn to the property industry where she worked for over 12 years. But that desire to travel kept back in and led Bridget to work for a owner run safari lodge portfolio in Tswalu Game Reserve in the Northern Cape in 2004. After almost 5 years working in a single Game Reserve she wanted to spread her wings and worked for a renowned safari company with camps based across the continent in Botswana, Zambia and East Africa. Thereafter Bridget began to focus on tourism in Mozanbique working for two companies who ran high end resorts in the country.
