Gena Tweed

Operations Assistant

Adventurous | Enlightening | Wildlife-Focused

Gena Tweed has possessed a love of Africa for as long as she can remember. She’s had the opportunity to visit the amazing continent many times and continues to look forward to exploring it further. Each visit has not only reinforced her passion for wildlife and conservation but has also inspired a love for the land and its incredible people. Based in New Mexico, Gena has worked with Extraordinary Journeys for four years. Her teammates describe her as being loyal, calm, considerate, and detailed—what more could you look in the person who’s planning all the tiny important details of your great adventure?

Gena has hiked Mount Kenya, and enjoyed safaris on horseback, foot, and camelback. She has experienced the Great Migration in the Maasai Mara and Serengeti, took a microlight flight over Victoria Falls, and had dinner on a pontoon in the Zambezi river. Gena’s favorite animal is the cheetah. Each trip is unique in this land of adventure and she can’t wait to share her passion for the African continent with you.
