Born in Sweden to a Swedish father and English mother, Sussi Galley wasn’t introduced to Africa until 1989, when she visited Zimbabwe on a business trip. Her work obligations met, she embarked on a three night canoe safari on the mighty Zambezi River. And with it, the notion of returning to Scandinavia was swept away downstream, along with her heart. She discovered a new passion that is Africa.
After ten years of running Livingstone Safaris in her beloved Zimbabwe, she moved to Cape Town with her family in 2000. Her passion for travel now encompassed South Africa and so her expertise expanded. Beneath the shadow of Table Mountain, Sussi continues to do what she was born to do - planning bespoke trips of distinction to Africa. Sussi stays ahead of the curve by travelling extensively within Africa and abroad to ensure her finger remains on the pulse of our vibrant industry.
