Experienced Worldwide agent.
After leaving school John joined the Royal Navy, serving 6 years as a gunner and seaman, travelling to some of the more and less glamorous corners of the globe on service.
Leaving the Navy to seek a new challenge, John set of for a years backpacking, followed by a couple of ski seasons and several periods of living abroad in various parts of the planet.
Not being able to sustain this lifestyle forever John decided the sensible move was to return to England and move into travel, using his wealth of experience to send other people on holiday. He spent the next 6 years working for Dial-a-Flight, further extending his knowledge of all things travel and becoming an expert in countless worldwide destinations.
John has been a friend of Pure Zanzibar from its conception, and from his desk at Dial-a-Flight arranged all the flights for Pure Zanzibar customers for over 2 years, during which time he visited Zanzibar and fell in love with it.
Again seeking a new challenge, he decided to make the transition and move to Pure Zanzibar in October 2010, becoming a manager within a year and bringing his worldwide travel experience to the team. He has since been back to Zanzibar, staying a good range of properties across the island.
John last travelled to Tanzania in October 2013, staying in several more luxury lodges, including Kilindi, Kasha, Mnemba Island and the Hideaway. Mnemba Island was very special indeed, it would be hard to find a more perfect beach destination.
To date John has visited 48 different countries,across every continent! If forced to choose, New Zealand would come out on top, its mixture of rugged scenery, beaches and olde world feel is hard to draw a comparison to.
The truth is that the answer is different for everyone!
The food, service and ambience are all still first class.
