Amanda JamiesonAmanda Jamieson discovered the seductive allure of travel as a teenager growing up just outside Ann Arbor, Michigan, and she’s been on the move ever since! She first traveled overseas during high school, spending three weeks in Australia and New Zealand and six weeks in Ecuador, including the Galapagos and Amazon. As a college student, she headed to Europe on a study tour, covering 14 countries in four months.

Since then, Amanda has moved into selling travel so that others can share the same rewards she has discovered. Her work in sales has taken her on safari to Tanzania, Botswana, Malawi and South Africa; she spent three weeks in Ethiopia; and she’s traveled to Churchill to watch wild polar bears from Nat Hab’s exclusive Tundra Lodge. She later relocated to Scotland where she sold active adventures around the world, then headed to the foothills of the Sierras where she sold rafting and kayaking adventures.

Amanda’s latest move is to Colorado, to join Nat Hab’s team of Adventure Specialists. It’s a great new home, since she loves the mountains, hiking and being active in the outdoors.

Hiking the dunes in Sossesvlei, Namibia.Rainbow over Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.Learning to pole a mokoro at Pelo Camp in the Okavango, Botswana.Exploring magical Machu Picchu.Learning about the colorful weavings of the Lake Titicaca region of Peru.Paddling on the Amazon River in Peru.I often get asked, ‘what’s your favorite destination’, and it’s a very difficult question to answer… but I definitely have a strong pull to Botswana! There’s just something special about a Botswana safari and being surrounded by remote wilderness and wildlife.Sea kayaking in bonnie (beautiful) Scotland was all-around fabulous. But by far the highlight of the trip was being surrounded by a large pod of porpoise!No visit to Botswana’s famous Okavango Delta is complete without a fun mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) excursion. Scotland holds a very special piece of my heart. It is by far one of the most beautiful and welcoming places I’ve ever been. And it’s absolutely jam-packed with fun outdoor activities!The Great Migration is a spectacular site, and to see it from a hot air balloon is pretty incredible. It’s hard to top the joy of being on safari in Tanzania, but interacting with some of the children in a local village was absolutely a highlight of my trip!Victoria Falls is pretty impressive all on its own, especially after the rainy season, but viewing it from a microlight flight really kicks it up a notch!Playing with the friendly gray whales of Baja was one of the most unique and amazing wildlife encounters I’ve ever experienced, truly unforgettable!
