AGATHA FARRELL

Travel advisor, miracle worker & ultimate right hand woman

 

Born in a small Karoo town, Somerset East, has me naturally loving the bush and generally being outdoors. However after meeting Mark I fell in love with Africa, paving the way to where I find myself today, proud to be a member of the Satori Africa family. The meeting of new people and giving them the trip of their dreams with memories to last them a lifetime definitely makes what I do so special to me.


If you could be an animal for a day what would you be?

An Elephant for sure, not only are they beautiful majestic animals but also family orientated, loyal and have a great memory (something I sometimes need help with!)

 

Your favourite destination to send clients to?

Botswana for me is the greatest safari destination with a number of amazing game viewing in a number of unique ways.

 

What is your perfect idea of an African holiday?

For me it would have to be our African Romancing itinerary, exploring The Mother city, enjoying rich wines in the countryside winelands, sipping cocktails on a secluded intimate island, or enjoying romantic sundowners whilst on safari. This for me covers all the various gems that make up our beautiful home.

 

Tell us a random quirky thing about you:

I am a huge egg fan; I think it is the only food that makes me dance while preparing them!

 

Your perfect sundowner:

For me it would have to be a glass of Inverroche Amber Gin with lots of ice and tonic, garnished with grapefruit peel and a sprig of rosemary.

 

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want to have with you?

If I was stranded on a desert island, I would want a silver thermal blanket because I can not stand being cold , a Lifestraw and a machete!

 

What is your favourite TV show?

The Office, but it has to be the American version!

 

Would you rather be able to fly or turn invisible?

The power of flight would be awesome on so many levels. We all hate traffic so if I could fly, there would be no more traffic jams for me, and imagine waking up today and deciding I want to be in the bush and swoosh, it happens.

 

Which one fictional place would you most like to visit?

I believe James Cameron gave us the best fictional place ever! Pandora. Although, it is mysterious, primal and terrifying just the “Avatar culture” has me hooked being so native and raw. And with my terrible sense of direction a place where the path glows when you set your foot on it or the Eywa that gives you the directions is perfect for me!

 

Where is your next go to travel destination?

An absolute must visit on my bucket list is a Uganda trek combined with meeting the Maasai in Kenya, since reading and watching The White Masai by Corinne Hofmann a number of times growing up I have become beyond intrigued.
