SAY HELLO TO THE TEAM
Escape is led by Anna and Kirsty who work with a network of guides and partners to deliver bespoke adventures.
Brought up traipsing across the Yorkshire moors, Kirsty has since lived and worked in the middle east for over 10 years. She is an experienced outdoor enthusiast and guide: leading the multi-day 125k Women's Heritage Walk for the last 3 years, multiple desert and mountain adventures and regularly competing in international triathlons and ironman. Previously Kirsty worked in publishing, including producing her own travel book to accompany a TV travel series. A qualified mountain first aider and Girl Guiding lead, Kirsty is passionate about exploring and showing others the diversity of the UAE and beyond.
Anna has over 20 years of experience guiding trekking and cycling adventures across six continents of the world. During this time she spent several years managing fundraising treks and bike rides for a charity, and subsequently applied her experience as a director of a charitable trust to encourage young people to undertake unsupported expeditions around the world. After moving to the middle east (Saudi Arabia, Oman and then the UAE), Anna now leads Escape with Kirsty with the objective of providing outstanding, fun, and safe experiences that leave lasting memories.
