Lynne grew up on a farm living an adventurous outdoor life. Her holidays consisted of camping in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia, as well as doing hikes and trails.
After travelling to remote corners of the world, she studied hospitality and hotel school to ensure that she would live and work in the wilderness. Lynne has since worked in various wildlife reserves and prime lodges and is now based in Mashatu with EcoTraining.
Michell qualified with a diploma in Adventure Management in 2003 and worked in the industry for a couple of years.
