Robert "Bobby" McGovern - Adventure Specialist

Bobby began his career in 1993 as the operations manager of a small safari company specializing in East Africa (Interworld African Safaris in Miami). Before long he was being sought after by various safari companies in the U.S. because of his knowledge, hard work ethic and his open, honest rapport he develops with his clients. He treats his clients as if they were family members and won't hesitate to speak up if he feels something is not right for his clients.


He moved to California and cut his teeth on Southern Africa working for Safariplans, a small operation based in Pasadena. He made his first trip to Southern Africa (South Africa & Botswana) in 1994 and fell in love with it. He was then courted by African Travel in Glendale, CA where he enjoyed five years specializing in custom designing safaris to Eastern & Southern Africa for his clients. He hated to admit he knew South Africa better than the U.S.


In 2000 he was offered a dream job as VP of Sales for Destinations & Adventures a luxury tour designer for the client who wants it all taken care of, down to the smallest detail. He travelled all over the world learning destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.


After his first visit to Egypt in 2000 he was truly smitten. He travelled to the area numerous times adding to his incredible depth of knowledge. For two years he was living in Egypt six months of the year.


In 2007 he started his own company, Reservations Master and continued living in Egypt for six months of the year. When things began getting unsettled in Egypt in 2010 he decided to stay in the U.S. full time. Frequent Internet outages made it impossible to service his clients properly.


From royalty to friends inside numerous embassies, his bases are covered. There's practically nothing he can't put together.
