Sales teams


If waking up at dawn to the sound of lions roaring, floating across open plains in a hot air balloon or perhaps diving with whale sharks off remote islands fills you with excitement, then joining the Africa sales team is the perfect choice for you. Creating itineraries like this is just a small highlight of what you can do with Scott Dunn. Areas covered are sub-Saharan Africa including South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Madagascar, Mauritius, and Seychelles.

Our specialists get to know their countries inside out, so you’ll try our wonderful hotels, our completely unique experiences and our friendly private drivers and guides so that you know what to recommend personally to our guests. Our regions are diverse, intrepid and sometimes remote so we need someone with a very good eye for detail but also passionate about travelling and getting off the beaten track.

Areas covered for India and Arabia include India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Jordan, Oman, Dubai, Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia.
