Antonette “Nonnie” was born in Ndola, Zambia in 1961 and her parents moved to Zimbabwe when she was seven years old. Her parents were the largest strawberry farmers in South Africa and she grew up on a farm just outside of Harare and spent most of her holidays fishing on Lake Kariba where she fell in love with her country and the “African way of life”.
Ian and Nonnie met in 2004 in the USA while Ian was on a marketing trip and Nonnie was working for a large Safari Operation based in Houston Texas. Nonnie had been living in the USA for 20 years and it was love at first sight. Ian asked Nonnie to move back to Africa/Tanzania with him which she did. Their son Lian was born that same year and they both remained in Tanzania for the following 6 years travelling extensively around Tanzania and working in the Safari Industry.
Ian and Nonnie wanted to move back to the country they both loved so much, so in 2009 they did just that and this is when “Upmarket Safaris” was started.
Ian and Nonnie specialize in planning safaris for discerning travellers who want to visit the highlights of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, Rwanda and South Africa combined with the private guiding. Ian learned the skills of providing top standards of service to International clientele through his years of experience working for several top notch companies in Central, Southern and Eastern Africa. He takes great pride in sharing his knowledge of the animals, reptiles, birds, insects, trees and especially the people of all these countries.
Ian and Nonnie believe that their safari planning and the private guiding combination provides the best option for the traveller.
