Meet Africa Awaits: Alastair & Laura Lamont
Hailing from South Africa, Alastair has spent his life exploring (preferably in his Series III Land Rover). He grew up seeking adventure in Namibia and all over the South African bush as well as Cape Town and Johannesburg. His professional life has taken him to both Eastern Africa and throughout Southern Africa, where he has been an integral team member, lodge creator, dive instructor, private guide, head ranger, battlefields guide, and lodge manager across various luxury destinations. Alastair's story-telling is second to none, and his top notch hospitality training only complements his naturally-caring nature and white glove expertise.
Alastair's true passion lies in connecting people to Africa. Since moving to the U.S. in 2018 to be with his wife Laura (whom he met in South Africa during her Peace Corps service there), he has enjoyed utilizing his vast network to create tailor-made safaris for distinguished travelers looking to explore, relax, or anything in between. Alastair puts the utmost care in designing trips so clients enjoy experiences and have "wow moments" beyond all expectations.
Alastair and Laura both come from well-traveled backgrounds with broad horizons, and they have chosen to settle in the Highlands-Cashiers area of North Carolina where Laura's family has rooted history. They love raising their two young children in the mountains, connecting with the community, and having the opportunity to send clients on incredible, life-changing journeys to their beloved Africa.
"If I have ever seen magic,
it has been in Africa."
