Founder of Safari the Globe
Justin Dodge is an avid traveler and this interest sparked the founding of Safari
the Globe. Justin is from state of Wisconsin, in the
United States and as a child frequently traveled around the U.S.A., particularly
to Florida and Illinois, where much of his family lives. His first trip outside
the United States was in 1999, when he traveled to Canada
with his family.
Despite his trip to Canada, Justin's addiction to traveling
didn't truly begin until 2003, his next trip abroad, when he went to
Kenya and Tanzania to scale Mt. Kilimanjaro. It
was the vast differences in culture, food, scenery, and wildlife that hooked him
on travel and truly began his adventures.
Since 2003, Justin has traveled extensively throughout the world, with each trip
taking on a different form of travel. He has lived, worked, and studied abroad;
he has also traveled abroad solely for business meetings and on other occasions
only for pleasure. He has gone on organized day and week-long tours, backpacked
for weeks at a time without a shower, cruised the oceans in style, and gotten utterly
lost in the mountains after hitch hiking the lonely streets of the Caucus Mountains.
