Meet Jacky & Peter Emery


Peter & Jacky with 300,000 wildebeest friends in Tanzania's Serengeti






My name is Peter Emery and I am the African Travel Specialist for Ucango Travel & Cruise based on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. 

My wife Jacky and I work together to create bespoke African experiences  Small group safaris, luxury camping safaris, and amazing private safaris.

We live and work on Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast but we have regular clients from all over Australia.

We offer a unique service, visiting clients at their home if they live between north of the Brisbane River and Gympie or at their favourite cafe. (The coffee and cakes are on us.)  If our clients prefer, we can meet them at the Ucango Travel & Cruise office in Maroochydore. 


With seventy years of African travel experience between us, Jacky and I know where the best game viewing areas are and the best time of year for your visit.  Of course we also know all the best game lodges, camps and hotels.  In addition we have all the best airfares to get you there and can provide travel insurance and a visa service where necessary.


I have been in the travel industry since 1990 and have travelled to many wonderful places across the World, yet I keep returning to Africa.


My wife Jacky and I have been travelling to Africa for more than thirty five years.  We met in Africa on a trans-Sahara overland trip from Lome in Togo to Tunis, passing through such places as Djenne and Timbuktu on the way.  These days we are dedicated to preserving Africa's amazing and unique wildlife.  The best way we can do that is to tell as many people as we possibly can what a wonderful, safe and rewarding, even life changing experience an African safari can be. 


Each and every African nation has its own charm and beauty.  From the wide open plains of Tanzania's Serengeti to spectacular Cape Town, Kenya's Amboseli National Park with its awe inspiring views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Botswana's Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls, and the beautiful highland gorillas of Uganda and Rwanda.  Don't forget historic Zanzibar and the pristine beaches of Mozambique.  Africa has something for everyone and we know you will love it every bit as much as we do.


There are stunning beach resorts in Zanzibar and Mozambique, while Ethiopia has incredible scenery and fascinating culture, while Cape Town is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain and some of the best wineries in the world on its doorstep, set amid simply mind blowing scenery of the Western Cape.


If you are dreaming of Africa give us a call.  We'd love to help you make the most of your safari.  You can call me direct on 0449 689 447 or drop me an email at peter.emery@ucango.com.au or if you prefer call our office on 07 5451 8600 and ask the friendly staff there to put you through to Peter Emery.


If you'd like me to visit your Rotary, Lions, Probus club or retirement village to deliver a short talk and slide show on the subject of African wildlife please give me a call.
















Everyone holds a little piece of Africa in their heart.
