Your details

Where's the best place you've ever stayed?

It has to be Mara Bushtops in Kenya. Having our own luxury tent with a butler in the middle of the Masai Mara was incredible. I was woken up one morning by Lions roaring, to be told that a pride of 14 lions were hunting right by our tents.

What's your oddest travel moment?

We had arrived into Kuala Lumpur early morning, and jet lag hit us hard we were all in bed by 8pm. We were then woken up to loud bangs at midnight. Me and my fiancé zombie walked to the window (We were 13 floors up!) to find fireworks right outside our room in front of the Petronas Towers. We since found out it was Malaysia’s Independence Celebration (31st August) and we had the best view of the fireworks. They only do the fireworks twice a year (New Year and Independence day) and we were so lucky to experience it. We watched the beautiful display for 10 minutes not saying a word to each other, and then got back into bed like nothing happened.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

Has to be ticking off the big 5 on my first safari experience. We were 100% sure we weren’t going to find the Leopard, however our game driver did his best job and we saw 2 in 1 day. Also the Safari hot air balloon over the Masai mara.

What are your suitcase essentials?

Carmex Lip Balm! Travel sickness bands (they worked a treat for the speedboat transfers in the Maldives) My underwater camera ヨ I've had brilliant photos from past holidays, from the waterpark in Dubai and pool in St Lucia to the ocean in Antigua and the Maldives

Where's next on your wishlist?

Next on my wish-list will be the Garden Route and Safari in South Africa, then finishing with a pool villa in the Seychelles. Perfect mix of experiences, safari and stunning beaches! My wishlist grows everyday working at Kuoni.

"Whitney was very helpful and patient. We received excellent customer service, which is a rare thing these days."

Whitney is sure her passion for travel came from her first flight to the Philippines when she was two years old. Since then, she's wanted to travel the world and experience different cultures, which she has learnt from her family in the Philippines. Whitney was lucky enough to join the travel industry at the age of 16.
