Meet Your Instructor

Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Nicole Eddy has spent much of her life enjoying the many adventures her unique home country has to offer. Along the way, Nicole developed a love for safari destinations, extensively exploring and finding reasons to return to ‘the bush,’ time and time again for work, conservation, and pleasure. Her love and expertise for these unique areas left Nicole wanting to share the magic of safari with others. So, in 2020, Nicole started up her own travel company, Africa UnEarthed, with the purpose of curating South African safari-based itineraries for travelers. Now, Nicole shares her safari expertise throughout this course with the hope that you can feel confident going into your own safari experience, whether it be self-drive or staying at a lodge, knowing what to expect and how to travel smarter.
