Su and Keith are the dynamic duo that run this high touch specialist Agency. Born out of their shared passion for discovery and adventure, Lazy Lizard Travel works to satisfy their discerning clientele with travel that restores, refreshes and educates. They personalize travel with creative itineraries customized to each client’s requirements.
Su grew up in the abundant sunshine of Zimbabwe and was educated in refined tropical style. There was ample time to spend outdoors where vast open scenery and wild nature invited exploration. As a descendent of 1679 Huguenots to the South African Cape, the spirit of exploration and adventure still runs strong…”My passion is to travel, my delight is to share that!”
Su is enthusiastic about learning and is continually curious about people and places. Her attention to detail, knowledge of her regions, in-depth personal travel and contact in the trade all help to ensure each client receives that excellence of service in creating their own adventure… But it is Su’s genuine love of people and desire to excite them with the adventure of travel that is her most marked characteristic.
Su is a certified Destination Specialist and holds several professional qualifications in travel marketing and management from The Travel Institute USA, the Center for Travel Marketing in California and IATA South Africa.
Keith was also born and raised in Colonial Africa, his only lingering tie to Europe being his German surname as his family arrived in South Africa after the Crimean War in the 1800’s.
Keith has traveled through much of Southern Africa including the Indian Ocean Islands of Seychelles and Mauritius and regularly visits safari lodges and camps to keep in touch with their latest developments. Keith is totally at home in the bush, being a wildlife enthusiast and he has a passion for conservation. As a keen ornithologist he served many years with the Wildfowl Trust of Zimbabwe. He was involved in various conservation projects and has presented at the African Crane & Wetland Training Workshop and the International Crane Foundation.
As a graduate from the University of Cape Town, Keith got to know and appreciate the heritage of the Cape and their world renowned winelands which date back nearly 400 years. It remains one of his favorite destinations – and the wine produced there is a favorite too! Keith is a successful sportsman, accomplished golfer, enjoys fly-fishing and also the study of military history when he is not out traveling or designing itineraries.
Keith and Su have three grown children who have turned out to be equally curious about the world around them and enthusiastically embrace travel whenever they get the chance.
