Anja Schmidt

Anja joined Dragoman as a crew member in October 2011. Born in Denmark, Anja grew up with a love for travel. Before joining us, she worked as an application engineer in the audio industry for 7 years. With a desire to travel for work Anja left the corporate world behind and joined the Dragoman family.

Dragoman sent Anja to India and Nepal on her first contract with the words 'if you survive India anything else will be a piece of cake'... she wondered about the 'if' but she survived and continued to lead trips. She has been leading a wealth of Dragoman trips in Central Asia, Mongolia, South East Asia, South America as well as North, East, South, West and Central Africa over the years. Anja loves to photograph the places she visits and she tends to collect a rather enviable collection of local crafts on her travels.
