Helle Sejer-Hansen

I lived Africa for the first fourteen years of my life – Kenya, The Gambia and Liberia. My later education I completed in Surrey and also the University in London (UCL) where I read Modern European Studies. Here I played Women’s Rugby was very involved in university sports.

 

My professional life includes working for the British Universities Sports Association (BUSA) organising student level sporting. In additions, I trained and practiced as a recruitment consultant at Angela Mortimer plc, working on contracts for Morgan Stanley and KPMG Consulting.

In 1999, unsatisfied with corporate life, I went traveling in search of adventure and an experience. I traveled extensively for nearly a year and a half and returning to Africa I decided to make it my home again.

In 2001 I completed a field guide course in South Africa with Eco Training took a job running Chris Fox’s Mwagusi Safari Camp in Ruaha National Park.

I moved back home to Kenya in August 2003 and worked for my family for three years in the Ngurumans at Ol Donyo Laro. I now work with Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley, as the operations manager for Giraffe Manor, Sala’s Camp and Sasaab, under the portfolio of Tamimi Kenya Ltd. I love all forms of outdoor activity – cycling, swimming, mountain climbing and hiking. I have a passion for the African bush and the birds and wildlife in it. I have been with Rhino Rouge for the past 6 years fundraising for Rhino Ark. I immensely enjoy being part of this dynamic team.
