An internationally known award-winning leader and expert in the Africa industry since 1987, Karin Jones has visited the world over from a luxury adventurer’s perspective. The past 35 years she has typically traveled to Africa once or twice annually; most recently to Namibia - revisiting South Africa, Kenya, and Tanzania, as well.

Karin holds an Executive MBA from Pepperdine University, as well as a degree in Education from Boston University's Wheelock College. She is a sought after speaker in the industry and uses her teaching, marketing and business background to design thoughtful programs and training on Africa for industry colleagues.
