Eza King

Since starting with Lindlbad Expeditions in 2006, Eza has had the very good fortune of working in numerous roles and regions of the globe. The descendant of a Cape Cod clipper ship Captain, seafaring life is in her blood. She grew up captivated by tales of his voyages around Cape Horn to San Francisco and Calcutta and back. Born in the Pacific Northwest, she was raised near Washington D.C., earning degrees in Environmental Science and Economics from University of Virginia. A life-long learner, she later pursued graduate studies in Sustainable Development at Chiang Mai University in northern Thailand, where she met and lives with her Italian-born husband.  

For a few years, Eza also lived in sub-Sahara West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer. The people of central Senegal fundamentally altered her perceptions of hospitality, sharing, sustainability, spaciousness, and time. This experience continues to influence the way she approaches exploring unfamiliar places. In addition to English, she understands Wolof, French, and Italian and she loves nature, maps, graphs, slowness, and public art. Eza’s sense of awe for our planet and its creatures and her spirit of adventure are contagious. Her kindhearted nature and years of expedition experience will ensure that you have an enjoyable and unforgettable expedition.
