Sonya Bradley’s passion for authentic and responsible travel is the natural upshot of her extensive travel industry experiences married with her personal adventures and youth spent living abroad. MORE
At the age of nine, her family moved to Tanzania for five years followed by Ghana for many more. Personal and professional travel has taken her on adventures throughout Latin America and Africa, each one life-changing and inspiring.
During her tenure at Country Walkers, Sonya championed the Latin America tour division which included new tour development, quality assessment, destination education, guide management and training, and sales. Under her management the Latin America portfolio evolved its own marketing and catalog initiative, as well as securing a significant market share within the company’s broader offerings. With this success, the company turned to Sonya to develop its a stand-alone safari brand.
As the Director of CW Safaris, she was responsible for all aspects of the business; from group and private tour development to contract negotiations, marketing, sales, and operations, Sonya created a safari brand that was highly respected within the industry. Also while at CW, she founded and chaired the company’s Responsible Travel Committee and its CW Travelers’ Fund. Hard work and strong relationships worldwide led to award-winning tours and distinguished media coverage.
Sonya now brings her love for travel and commitment to traveling responsibly to the Kusini Collection. Her goal is to unite exceptional U.S.-based outfitters with top adventure and luxury travel experiences across the globe.
