Rebecca Cook

Head of Operations and Sustainability

Travel and the natural world have always been a central part of my life. From my childhood spent exploring the moors, woodlands and coastlines of the southwest UK to now, tracking lions on foot on the savannas of Africa.

I qualified as a teacher in 2013 and spent a wealth of time teaching in South Africa, Zambia, India and Central London. Working in local orphanages, schools and hospitals I fell in love with the kindness, compassion and enthusiasm for life that these inspirational young people had. I wanted to share these unique places, cultures, communities and experiences with others, so, I started a journey on a new career path.

Since then, I have found myself on a continuous adventure. From immersing myself into new cultures, watching shooting stars in the Kalahari, diving in crystal clear oceans of Indonesia, photographing hummingbirds in Costa Rica, flying high about the thundering mass of Victoria Falls, tracking jaguars along the white sands of the Osa Peninsula, hiking the snowcapped mountains of Europe, drifting through the meandering channels of the Okavango Delta and gazing at some of the most incredible wildlife spectacles on earth. All experiences I want to share with Niarra’s travellers.

Until my next venture, you can probably find me open water swimming, cycling across the UK or taking photos of wildlife.

    South Africa

    This photograph was taken at the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, which we hiked up in 2022.
  • Chem Chem Lake Manyara Tanzania Becks


    I was impressed by Tanzania's diversity - endless grassy plains and dense forests to the volcanic landscapes of the Rift Valley.
  • Rebecca Cook in Uganda 2


    Uganda is a trip of a lifetime, I would highly recommend the destination to anyone who likes to explore a little off the beaten track.
