Growing up in rural Scotland, Bella adopted a keen interest in the natural world and all things outdoors. From backpacking in Europe and South America, to family adventures in Sri Lanka and Ethiopia, her love for travel has been instilled from a young age. After graduating from Newcastle University with a degree in Geography, Bella moved to Auckland where she worked for a beverage company, Lion, before travelling extensively through New Zealand. Addressing the itch to explore more of Africa, she swapped kiwi life for the bush, where she hosted at a high-end safari lodge in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. On returning to the UK to pursue a career in travel, Bella discovered Pelorus, joining us in 2020.
