Rae Chambers

Rae resides on the vibrant West Coast of BC, Canada, on Vancouver Island. With a profound love for travel, she has visited nearly 30 countries. However, it was a solo journey to Africa that ignited her true passion. Stepping foot in Botswana, she was captivated, compelling her to explore more of the continent. Rae has since ventured solo to Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mauritius, South Africa, Uganda, and Kenya, where she traveled with Gamewatchers Safaris and Porini Camps. It was during these experiences that she realized her desire to be part of the Gamewatchers team. With a background in social work and a deep-seated passion for the African bush, Rae recognized that her interests harmonized with the company’s ethos, making her transition into this field feel natural.

Rae understands firsthand the transformative impact a safari holiday can have on individuals and how fulfilling it is to safari with a purpose. Her spirit and enthusiasm shine brightly, enabling her to design the bespoke safari you’ve always envisioned.
