I am delighted to introduce myself, Catherine Pool your Private Journey Designer at Extraordinary Spaces. It would be my great privilege to create your dream trip in Africa. Having worked in the Africa travel space within some of the leading hotel groups on the continent, I was fortunate to gain further experience in the up and coming destination of Dubai. Eventually the call of Africa beckoned me back to these shores and I was a part of the opening team at a luxury five star boutique hotel in Johannesburg. My husband and I live in the gorgeous town of Hermanus (famous for whale watching) with our two young children and I spend my days creating beautiful journeys for a select clientele from around the world.
