My name is Helene Kirkham and welcome to my web page.
I have over 30 years’ experience in the travel industry and I have a passion for offering a quality and bespoke service to all my customers. As I’m sure we all know, there is no substitute for personal experience and good quality customer service and I am happy to share both with you.
I started my career at the age of 17 as a trainee in a small independent shop in Sheffield, and I am now delighted to be working with Travel Counsellors offering my customers independent and impartial advice and helping them turn their dream holiday into reality. I am passionate about travel and I commit as much care and attention over my clients' holidays as I do my own. After all, we all work hard during the year and we want our holidays to fully meet our expectations and more.
I have been fortunate to travel during my career to many destinations within Europe, the Caribbean, North America, North Africa, Canada, South Africa, Indian Ocean, the Far East and the Middle East, but no matter where your dream destination is, I will be delighted to help you.
I am available at weekends and some evenings by appointment so if you are too busy during the day then please don’t hesitate to let me know and I'll be more than happy to arrange a time to discuss your travel plans at a time convenient to you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my web page and I look forward to hearing from you!
Best wishes and Bon Voyage!

Arriving in Johannesburg after an 11 hour flight we boarded a 14-seater propeller plane for our 50 minute flight north to the malaria-free Madike Game Reserve which borders Botswana.

Airport transfers here include sightings of zebras, impala and giraffes! Madikwe Hills Lodge is a beautiful property consisting of luxury lodges all stunningly designed and with your own private deck and plunge pools overlooking the watering hole. Elephants and buffalo...
