Daniella Ponter – Director and Founder, Sikeleli Travel & Expeditions

I have known Hayley for over 25 years through school and then as she started her sterling career in marketing and sales with the revered company Unliever both in Africa and the UK. An easy transition was made when Hayley moved back to her beloved Africa and joined the travel and tourism realm and I saw her flourish and build herself not only an extraordinary career, but also a steadfast reputation in the travel industry.

Hayley’s complete professionalism married with ambition and drive, as well as a clear vision for her previous company’s goals, saw her grow what started as a small safari business into a whole group of reputable lodges, offering the very best for international guests. She is passionate and loyal and would be an asset to any business fortunate enough to work with her.
