Bronwyn Kazmer

Cruise & Journeys Specialist
CLIA Accredited Cruise Specialist

Who can say they have set foot on 7 continents! Antarctica would have to be Bronwyn’s favourite and is a highlight of her travel experiences by far! While the world’s most iconic and most popular travel destinations might be amongst Bronwyn’s favourites, her tastes also extend to some more eclectic destinations. Take the vibrant cities of South America with it’s culinary delights and you’ll find them firmly stamped in Bronwyn’s passport – and her memory. The diversity of Ecuador, the vibrant people of Buenos Aires and the spirited locals in Cuba have all left their indelible mark. For Bronwyn travel is about creating amazing memories and delivering experiences that stay with you forever. While Central and South America are hands down favourites, some more classic experiences have won me over too, including an African safari, and relaxing Tahitian style at a luxury Island resort and not to mention the Hawaiian Islands and more recently India.

Bronwyn recommends:

Destination: Antarctica
Ship: Sergey Vavilov research vessel
Hotel: The Lake Palace by Taj – Pichola, Udaipur
Tip: I always carry more than 1 camera & memory card for destinations like Africa and Antarctica. A phone might not capture all that a good camera would and it is always good to have a backup
