LEADERSHIP
 

Kate Coleridge


Having grown up in a family who lived much of their life in Africa, Kate was drawn to the continent from an early age. After graduating from university, and working for a few years in a marketing role in London, Kate decided to move to Africa in search of a more exciting life. She settled in The Waterberg region of South Africa as a horseback safari guide and over the years moved in to a marketing role. Kate has been marketing African lodges since 2009 and has excellent relationships with leading global tour operators, as well as target agencies such as riding safari specialists and private villa companies. Her approach is dynamic and current, and her loyalty towards the clients is unshakeable.

TESTIMONIALS

Kate has a knack of picking a winner. Her knowledge and ability to present a property’s qualities are second to none. She does it in a fun, friendly and approachable way, but one that also impresses with her professionalism.
— Francis Naumann, Aardvark Safaris —
Kate and Sacha have been amazing, due to their depth of experience in the African travel market and fun, uncomplicated attitude. They totally get what we are trying to do and, because they are highly respected within the industry, people listen to them. When they say something is worth looking at – the travel industry pay attention. Since we have been dealing with Handpicked, our bookings have increased by over 100% in a year and are already on track to increase by the same again this coming year. The results speak for themselves.
— Rory Sweet, Leobo Private Reserve —
Kate Coleridge is a professional and highly motivated individual who understands the complexities of the African tourism industry. Following in the footsteps of her illustrious father, a director of one of Africa’s largest and most respected tour operators who even won the challenging East African safari rally, she has inherited the personality and drive that are required when representing some of Africa’s most prestigious products.
