Angela Sacha died unexpectedly in September 2021. We are all in shock. If you would like contribute to the causes Angela held close to her heart, please see The Angela Conservation Fund. For more information, please see Will Jones’s tribute to her.
Angela joined Journeys by Design in 2006. Today, she is one of Journeys by Design’s directors and Impact Travel Director for Wild Philanthropy. Over the years, she has built a large and illustrious client-base of travellers, many of whom return time and again to her for the design and managing of their trips to Africa.
Having worked in the world of finance, Angela took time out to study a degree in Fine Art, which fuelled an interest in the combining of conceptual art and human rights. This history, her support for organisations such as Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, and a chance meeting with Will Jones in 2005, paved the way for combining both ends of her professional spectrum – financial and artistic.
Immersed in conservation-orientated travel with Journeys by Design and Wild Philanthropy, Angela applies her skill set to the company’s conservation efforts and impact travel model, designing and coordinating special access travel for Friends of Wild Philanthropy as well as for those in search of one-off immersive adventures.
As part of her job, Angela travels very regularly to Africa, enabling a deep understanding of the continent, and in particular the challenges within the tourism sector, from sustainable development to the empowerment of local community stakeholders to the preservation of wildlife.
