About Aisha

Born and raised in Kenya, I’ve been lucky enough to grow up with safari as my playground and the wilderness as my garden. I’ve always felt it was too special not to share, and, after helping family friends with their lodges in the school holidays, decided that a career in tourism was the best way to introduce my world to others. After studying tourism management at university, I spent two years managing a lodge in Laikipia, northern Kenya. It was an incredible experience but it’s now time to try my hand at the flip side of the industry: designing and selling travel. This has led me to cazenove + loyd; I can’t think of anywhere better to start this next chapter.

Aisha in Mongolia 2023
Just returned from…

Mongolia

In August I competed in the Mongolian Derby, which is the longest and toughest horse race in the world. I covered 1350 km on horseback in 10 days. It was the most incredible but also the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Along the race we stayed with Nomadic herder families, who didn’t speak any English and can’t say I spoke much Mongolian, however I have never felt more welcomed. It was a privilege to see this wonderful country in the rawest form he beautiful landscapes left me speechless at times. Mongolia will always be a special place to me.

Seychelles
NEXT DESTINATION IS…

The Seychelles and Botswana

I am heading out to experience two places that have been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. These two destinations make a wonderful twin-centre trip of bush and beach, and I am so looking forward to soaking up the tropical island life of the Seychelles and being close to nature in the African bush.
