Alison is the Founder and the MD of Ethos. In addition to the day-to-day running of the business, Alison gets involved in both sales and PR, and likes to get out on the road every now and again.
On a farm in the Free State (South Africa) and so had to go to boarding school at a young age.
KZN Coast, Kruger and the Eastern Cape. First European trip was when I was about 20, spent two months travelling in Europe and the UK.
Gardening, country walks with our dog, tennis, golf (not enough time for it all)
Always like to try something different. Love travelling in the UK and visiting SA to catch up with the family.
Walking from Cintsa to Hagga Hagga – 6 hour beachwalk with no one else around, the Lake District and Wales with our dogs, hot air ballooning over the Mara, the list is endless.
Part of the team that did all the planning and organizing of Indaba.
Amanda is the Sales and Marketing Director and Co-owner of Ethos. After dabbling in the rest of the world, Amanda finally found out that Africa is where she really wanted to be, and now heads up our Sales & Marketing team and loves nothing more than a bit of strategising.

Sue is our Business Development Manager, which means that she is out on the road most of the time (except when she is in a whiskey bar in Maboneng (pictured)). Sue has proactively built a very successful key account database that covers UK tour operators, travel agents, business travel agents and conference and incentive houses.

Claire is our PR & Marketing Manager, and also works closely with the Sales team and their Tour Operators building relationships with their in-house PR or outside agencies to ensure some fantastic press coverage for our clients. Check out our media showcase on our online press room for a few examples.
I grew up in Benoni (famous for Charlize Theron and Princess Charlene of Monaco, as well as the bunny park!).
Most of my childhood memories were caravanning around South Africa. It was a fantastic way to experience the country - with camp sites right on the beach or in the middle of the Kruger Park.
I love to socialise - nothing beats a braai with friends and family. With 3 boys life is hectic so in my down time I like to read, play around on social media or dive into a box set on Netflix.
My "happy place" is on the back of an open safari vehicle anywhere in Africa - but I also love to spend time with my husband and 3 boys on a lovely sandy beach somewhere warm!
Many of my travel memories have come from my 16+ years of working at Ethos - staying in some of the world’s most iconic safari lodges and hotels. I recently spent a few hours in the elephant hide at Mashatu with my Dad which I will never forget!
Fundraising and copy-writing.
Kevin is our Sales Office Manager, and is an integral part of the Ethos sales team and his strong knowledge of the Ethos account base ensures a seamless approach to our relationship management.
Haven't yet! Jokes aside Kevin is the only one in the team who is truly local, having lived in the Horsham district all his life.
I visited Malawi and Zambia with friends and fell in love with Africa.

Nik is responsible for ensuring that wherever possible we are at the cutting edge of new technologies in all that we strive to do. He has set up a networked computer system which extends to home office setups reflecting the office environment as well as overseas remote set ups to enable email access.
