Natural Habitat Adventures

Sarah Raby

Raised in the Fox River Valley, 40 miles west of Chicago, Sarah was centrally located to roam the U.S. at a very young age. Some of her fondest memories include her six member family piling into a conversion van to explore as many national parks in a seven day period as possible. She went on to study Communications and Biology at Northwestern University in St. Paul, MN. Upon graduation, being extremely tired of the long Minnesota winters, Sarah moved to Costa Rica. This sparked a passion for travel, language and culture that would take her to the remote jungle villages of Ecuador, medical missions in Bolivia, the beaches of Mexico and the Caribbean, the Canadian Rockies and Eastern and Western Europe. In 2004, Sarah obtained a TEFL certificate and taught English in the U.S. and abroad. Since joining the Nat Hab team in 2007, she’s developed an endless appetite for all things Africa and she continues to delve into the wildlife and culture of this vast continent at every opportunity. In her spare time you can find her practicing yoga, experimenting in the kitchen, with her nose in a book or planning her next trip with her husband and two kids.

Sarah's Adventures
    Typical initiation as a Nathab employee includes a visit to the arctic town of Churchill, Manitoba and visiting our favorite Polar bear friends – what a fantastic experience!Irene, me & Marcy, fast polar buddies, fighting off the arctic chill.The small village where my husband was born on the Costa del Sol, Spain. Still one of my favorite vacation spots.Part of every great travel experience is the cultural interaction and what better way to interact than with paella on the beach. Delicioso!Black rhino trekking in Namibia’s vast Palmwag concession was an exhilarating experience and one I’d absolutely suggest!Life on the Duba Plains, Botswana, with our star guide 007.The MIGHTY Zambezi is definitely something to be feared. I’d suggest the helicopter tour over the falls as a ‘tamer’ option to view this amazing life-source.There’s no better way to see the wildlife in Lewa than by foot, horse or camel. Doesn’t Greg Courter (NHA Adventure Specialist) look like a natural rider?By far one of the most picturesque scenes of the Maasai Mara – a sunset on lions lazing in front of the migration.Local kids from remote fishing villages along the shores of Lake Tanganyika. The only thing you can hear for miles is the sound of their laughter travelling over the water.Peer pressure has a way of making you do things you’d never do as Kelly Dellinger (Director of Group Sales) cheers me on from the water!I’m fascinated by the quaint villages of Europe. My sister lives in the Black Forest of Germany, so she’s always willing to go exploring with me.I love cats! While I only have one tenacious tabby at home, I love to get my cat fix in Africa (here at Spier’s rehabilitation center).The table cloth lifted & viola! What a spectacular view of Cape Town and surrounds.When I’m not traveling on work adventures, Ben & I like to explore places a bit closer to home. N. California & the Caribbean are at the top of our lists.Charlie is always happy when Mom’s home from a long trip!This is why you come to Botswana! I heart the Linyanti.Our Silverback 'Chris' and fearless Expedition Leader, Denis Erabu, scouting for monkeys in the Bigodi SwampCrazy: elephant, kobs and birds galore on the Kazinga Channel!Sandy & I having a ball as we take in the beautiful scenery of UgandaA G&T with a few hippos and an amazing EL is the perfect way to end an evening…What a treat to finally share what I love to do with my hubby of 8 years.
