Back to Global Conversations 3.08: Melissa Biggs Bradley, Indagare CEO and author of Safari Style
Why does unplugging in the bush return you to your more primitive senses and enable you to hear your inner voice? Indagare founder Melissa Biggs Bradley and Simone Girner discuss Melissa’s lifetime of safari experiences and her new book Safari Style, which showcases the design and conservation innovations of some of her favorite safari camps across seven African countries. Plus, how to plan a safari (and what to pack), her most memorable wildlife encounters—and why standing still (and staying quiet) may sometimes be the best advice.
On this episode, Indagare’s Creative Director, Simone Girner, jumps in the interviewer seat to talk Africa—in fact, we go deep into the African bush, on safari, guided by a real expert on the subject: Indagare’s own founder and CEO (and podcast host) Melissa Biggs Bradley whose new book — Safari Style: Exceptional African Camps and Lodges — has recently been released.
Throughout their conversation, Melissa, who has been on safari more than 40 times, talks about some of her most poignant safari experiences, takes us behind the scenes of some of the continent’s most fantastic lodges, and discusses why impactful travel to Africa is more critically important than ever before.
We’ve been so excited about this book and we’re thrilled to share an in-depth look at it with you, our listeners.
