MANCHESTER, UK, 28 March 2024 – Vikki Jackson, co-owner of Marula Hill Travel, has won the Best Boutique Safari Agency 2024 award from LUXlife magazine. The award recognises Marula Hill Travel’s exceptional safari experiences and Vikki’s unique journey from the UK to Africa. Born and raised in Manchester, Vikki fell in love with Africa on her 8th birthday when she mistook an olive for a grape. This incident sparked a passion for the continent, leading her to co-found Marula Hill Travel, a bespoke travel agency offering luxurious and authentic African safari experiences.
Vikki said: “Winning this award is a heartfelt honour celebrating Marula Hill Travel’s mission to share Africa’s soul-stirring beauty and diversity with the world. Marula Hill Travel specialises in custom-designed safaris and travel experiences across Africa, and its recognition by LUXlife’s Travel & Tourism Awards highlights our commitment to excellence in providing unforgettable experiences for its clients.”
Sian Loehrer, co-founder of Marula Hill Travel said: Vikki’s story is about embracing change, pursuing passion, and breaking boundaries. Her transition from a corporate career with IBM to entrepreneurship reflects a bold leap of faith and a commitment to following her heart. As a woman entrepreneur thriving in the safari industry, Vikki inspires many, proving that creating a successful and impactful business grounded in passion and respect for nature is possible.”
Marula Hill Travel is more than a company; it’s a journey of discovery and connection. This award from LUXlife magazine encourages them to continue pushing the boundaries of luxury travel in Africa. Vikki Jackson’s journey from Manchester to the heart of the African bush serves as a powerful narrative of passion, adventure, and success.
