Suzanne Spencer

Suzanna was born and raised in the Granite State, New Hampshire. She developed a love of travel and peanut butter sandwiches as a young child when her family packed her and her two siblings up in a VW Bug and drove them around the country every summer visiting various national parks, historical monuments and relatives. We thought this sort of thing only happened in Boulder!

While in high school, Suzanna was lucky enough to be chosen to race the marathon in the Goodwill Games over in the Soviet Union. This was her first introduction to international traveling and borsch. From this crazy adventure, she caught the travel bug, which she has never been able to shed.

After finishing up a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of New Hampshire (Go Wildcats!), Suzanna moved west and ended up in New Mexico, Idaho, and then finally settled in Colorado. She has kept Colorado as her home base but has also been lucky to live and work in exciting places such as Bolivia, New Zealand, Antarctica and Alaska.

Designing African safaris is truly where her heart lies. She loves to share her passion for this amazing continent with others. She has taken numerous adventures over the last 20 years to Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia and more. One of her favorite African experiences was getting to attend the Gorilla Naming Ceremony in Rwanda.

In addition to Africa travel some of her favorite travel adventures include swimming with penguins in the Galapagos Islands, kayaking near glaciers in Alaska, riding the Tran-Siberian railroad, seeing a rookery of over 100,000 King penguins, rounding up goats by horseback in Mongolia, having a snowball fight with young kids in Bhutan and walking on the Great Wall in China. When she is not found at work she can be found teaching Pilates, falling down on the ski slopes or gardening.

Naiman, Aly and Suzanna. Getting ready to start off on a Great Adventure
Masai Soccer Game: Some things are universal… at a Masai village we got to see first hand how this tribe eats, sleeps, works and even how the kids play soccer!
A hike with a MasaiGiraffes and Flamingos at Lake Manyara. The pink flamingo carpet on Lake Manyara was great entertainment for curious giraffes and safari goers.Our family safari watched this herd of elephants before they wandered off on their own family journey to the next watering hole.
Mto Wa Mbu, Mosquito River: 130 tribes in Tanzania are represented in this small community. It was a great place to people watch.As any world traveler knows, food is part of the fun!  This classic  “Burgers and Coke” picnic lunch near the Ngorongoro Crater was no exception.
Ngorongoro Crater definitely lived up to its reputation for being stunning. Even the clouds hanging on the rim were incredible!
Our guide constantly amazed us. He spotted this serval cat hidden deep in the grass. Luckily for us it chose to come and check us out.Here's our Serengeti Tented Camp. From the mobile tents we could look out over the grassy plains full of wildlife
Things couldn’t get better – after an incredible morning of wildlife viewing, Naiman pulled out a bag of fresh baked cookies baked that morning by the camp cook.
Our first Cheetah sighting AND it was stalking antelope on the Serengeti plains - does life get better than this?Our guide, Naiman, and NHA Adventure Specialist, Suzanna, posed together on a nature walk.We witness the astounding Great Migration. Wildebeest and zebra as far as the eye could see!
After just a few days, the crew at our private camp in the Serengeti felt like the best of friends. As if on cue, the sunset our last night on safari was perfect! We hope you’ll get to see this some day too!
