About Us:

Sandy Salle, Founder & President

A native of Zimbabwe, Sandy was born and raised in southern Africa and was fortunate to travel to many places in the southern part of the continent. While she is now happily an American citizen, she does miss Africa—the smell of the first rains, the beautiful sunsets, and the magic of the people. Believing the next best thing to living in Africa is sharing it with others, in 2002, Sandy founded Hills of Africa travel. Sandy is Hills of Africa’s personal escort and takes great pride in giving her clients the once-in-a-lifetime, magical African experience they’ll remember forever.

“I absolutely love spoiling our clients and assisting them with everything from itinerary updates to trip preparation, and answering client questions to arranging special treats and surprises for travelers, including surprise bush baths with champagne, accommodation upgrades, and more.
