Hi, I’m Jayne Paramor – Secret Women's Series

Since Sarah Hoyland sent me off on my first overseas adventure at the tender age of 24 i've had a lifelong case of itchy feet! I've explored all seven continents so I can help with almost any destination and I specialise in small group bookings, specifically the Secret Women's Series.

My Story

When Sarah Hoyland was interviewing me for the job at the Classic Safari Company, she asked me whether it was quicker to tell her where I hadn’t been, rather than where I had… and I blame it all on her. Half a lifetime ago, Sarah sent me off on my first big overseas journey as a naïve young 24 year old. The experience instilled me with such a fascination for the world beyond our shores that I have barely been home since – a life-long case of itchy feet! Seven continents later, having just returned home from four years overseas - this time in the UK – I am so excited to join the Classic Safari Company team and share some of the far flung wonders that I’ve been lucky enough to explore across this remarkable planet of ours – and let me assure you, once you start exploring, you won’t want to stop. I certainly haven’t!
