I'm a highly experienced tour operator, in touch with indigenous communities and ecosystems around East and Central Africa. I am extremely passionate about environmental conservation.
My company, Oluokos Signature, provides the essential linkage between supply and demand by liaising with several eco-conscious organizations to design responsible tour packages that integrate environmental, cultural, and social considerations.
My strong interpersonal skills enable me to quickly adapt and build rapport with my clients, fellow tour operators, staff and guides thereby improving my efficiency and boosting professionalism.
I absolutely love the outdoors and bird watching is my cup of tea, anytime. I also enjoy hiking, biking, and sky watching.
My personal mantra is
‘Travel opens your heart, opens your mind, and fills your life with stories to tell.
To spread the impact of responsible tourism for social change

Hi, I'm Carolyn, the CEO/Editor-in-Chief of JourneyWoman, a women's solo travel publication. Every year we publish a feature for International Women's Day celebrating women and this year we are looking tor photographs and stories of women who make travel possible, past and present.

Asking myself since last week what I can do, what we all can do more... so here I'd like to start a discussion thread of ways the tourism industry can help Ukraine 💛 💙- and everyone in travel who is affected. Hands-on and real. After all, travel is about people, cultures, peace and freedom. And tech is again a great accelerator for the 🌍 to work together. Personally, I am offering a free guest room in my home to a tourism or any other Ukraine student in need. Maybe there are more of us with a similar wish. So far I have found these platforms / initiatives to join & support, and in travel, I'm sure there is more! Please add in the thread if you know of any or have further ideas: • https://wehelpukraine.org/ • https://www.bg4ua.com/ • https://elinor.network/gastfreundschaft-ukraine/ • https://refugees.ro/ • https://www.supportukraine-eberswalde.de/ • https://www.facebook.com/groups/1012497419668646/ • https://airbnb.org/get-involved "Peace works better than conflict, and on...

Hello, let me introduce myself, the names Emmanuel (Eman for short). I joined this space to discuss how to become a travel writer as a complete beginner with little writing experience? I just want to dip my feet in the water so to say but I don't know where to start, I am passionate about traveling, I've lived in Ohio for most of my life and recently moved to Massachusetts, it was my first time living away from home and it changed my life, right now I just want to do more of that and be able to make a living traveling full time, is this possible or just a dream? Looking forward to your tips. Let me know!
