LYNDA SWAIN- Director of Sales, North America
Lynda is in charge of sales and customer service for all inquiries for DK Grand Safaris in North America. After her first trip to East Africa in 2006, she fell in love with the people, the culture and the wildlife in East Africa. It was on this trip that her and her husband, Jim met Daniel Kikemu, the safari director assigned to their group. Since then, she has revisited Africa several times. When thinking of a great, awesome life-changing destination, East Africa always comes first to her mind.
Lynda has been in charge of the sales in North America since the company began in 2009. Combining her accounting and organizational skills with her enthusiasm and knowledge of Africa, she is a natural to help travelers customize their dream of lifetime safari. Lynda’s African safari highlights include watching an exciting, heart-pounding cheetah hunt, a relaxing lunch on the lawn amongst the gardens at the local tea farm at Kiambethu, watching the lions play in the grass, and learning about the various habits of the animals. With Lynda, it is all about animals – any kind, anywhere, but those in Africa hold a special place in her heart. And so does Africa. She says, “Be aware of the Africa travel bug which is highly contagious, it will have you returning to Africa again and again, year after year”.
