Meet the team

Emma O’Rourke

Destination Specialist

I have been part of the Archipelago Choice team for five years and in this time have enjoyed fantastic adventures to the AzoresSao Tome and Principe, Namibia and Gabon . Highlights have been whale watching in the Azores, seeing turtles nesting on Sao Tome and Principe, watching leopard in Namibia and spending time with forest elephant and gorilla in Gabon.

I have always had an interest in wildlife and after completing my masters in Wildlife Conservation I spent a year volunteering on Cape mountain zebra and vervet monkey research projects in South Africa.

When I’m not working, you’ll find me out exploring the lake district fells with my energetic collie. I love to travel and most recently have enjoyed adventures to various countries in Africa, the Peruvian Amazon, Kurdistan, Nepal and South East Asia.
