Alison was born in South Australia, Port Lincoln and moved to Perth, Western Australia where she worked in natural resources. Ally first arrived in East Africa in 2007, north of Nairobi where she participated in a community project fixing a remote school. The two met during Ally’s third visit to Africa in 2010, during a community project in Tanzania. They went on safari in some of the major parks in Tanzania and also climbed the majestic Kilimanjaro. Their passion for the beautiful people and places of Africa has lead them to establish the company and run it together.
