Susan Fox is the founder of Fox Safaris, and her Africa expertise equips her to support others in their quest for adventure-exploring the world around, and within.
Susan Fox has been traveling professionally for 30 years, guiding individuals and university and museum groups through some of the world's most exotic locations-whitewater rafting in Nepal, cruising Ecuador's Galapagos Islands, trekking to Inca ruins in Peru, and journeying to visit remote hill tribes in Thailand's Golden Triangle. In the 1970s, Susan embarked on her first African expedition, traveling overland from Morocco to Kenya. She was bitten by the Africa bug, and has been returning ever since, traveling the breadth of the continent-from Egypt to Mali to South Africa to the Virunga Mountains. Her great love and chief expertise is in North (she speaks Arabic), East (she speaks Swahili) and Central Africa. She has lived or traveled extensively in all of these areas, and has developed a network of local contacts and friends who provide her groups with encounters rarely experienced by most tourists. Each year, she designs and personally escorts two to four African safaris-each limited to a group of no more than 13 handpicked participants.
Susan Fox has designed and scouted out new itineraries for prestigious American and European tour operators. She acts as consultant for travel companies on adventure travel, exotic destinations and tropical medical questions. For these clients, she also writes destination information and copywriting for their brochures, catalogs and websites. Her other writing includes wildlife documentary film scripts, destination travel guides and handbooks, travel articles for magazines and newspapers and, of course, writing of all sorts about Africa.
Susan Fox is a gifted teacher. She has conducted workshops and conferences on communication skills, leadership and teamwork. She regularly teaches courses (from half-day to weekend-long) on the Enneagram of Personality Types, conducts outdoor leadership retreats for homeless teenagers and acts as a freelance travel consultant and trainer for travel companies.
