Shannon & Julia Nesbitt


Julia grew up visiting her extended family in South Africa and has been exploring Africa since! She is a co-owner of African Safari Company where she is Director of Sales & Marketing. She previously spent 3 years as Africa Program Director at Wildland Adventures and worked as a manager at a small safari camp in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia during college. She has traveled all over Africa visiting family and heading out on safari in premier parks and private concessions, inspecting lodges and designing unique itineraries. Her passion for Africa shines through in every adventure she creates and she is thrilled to be leading the first Out Explorations Safari to some of her favorite places in South Africa with her wife!

Shannon is a trained chef and owner of Fig Tree Catering as well as handling social media for ASC. Her first trip to Africa was on their honeymoon in Kenya in 2010 where she fell in love with every aspect of safari. She has since joined Julia on explorations of Tanzania and South Africa. Never daunted by a language or cultural barrier, one of Shannon's favorite part of traveling is meeting new people and submerging herself in the local way of life and regional cuisines.

Julia and Shannon met through mutual friends in 2004 and have been married since 2010. They have explored the world together from Burgundy, France to the Galapagos and are looking forward to Morocco, Zimbabwe and Borneo in 2015! The couple led their first group trip to South Africa in 2013 and continue to hone their extensive wildlife and destination knowledge with every trip.
