Next up in our Meet the Tenants series is Aardvark Safaris, a safari planning company which was set up in 1999. What started as a small enterprise has evolved into a vibrant, thriving company with UK offices in London, Hampshire and the Scottish branch here at Eskmills.
We chatted to Alice Gully, Sales Director at Aardvark Safaris, to find out more about the business and what they love about being based at Eskmills.
Can you tell us what Aardvark Safaris is all about?
We tailor-make safari and beach holidays to Africa and the Indian Ocean islands. Whether you are a solo traveller, honeymooner, couple, extended family or a group, we can help you plan an itinerary with experiences that surprise and delight so you can enjoy the real Africa with absolute confidence and security.
When did you move into Eskmills, and what made you choose here?
We moved to Eskmills about two years ago. One of the main reasons we chose it was because it was the best location for staff coming from different places. Because of the great bus routes, car parking and nearby train station it’s easy for staff to travel from both East Lothian and Edinburgh.
What does a typical day look like at your office?
Busy! There’s always lots going on – from connecting with suppliers and researching new destinations, to planning itineraries and organising experiences for our customers.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Eskmills?
The walks to the beach and the river. It’s great being so close to the countryside, but with the benefits of a nearby city too. And the broadband speed at Eskmills is definitely a plus!
What exciting things are coming up for Aardvark Safaris in 2019?
Growing, new destinations and lots of travel!
