- Describe Africa in one sentence
I couldn’t describe it better than the Lonely Planet:
“Raw and refined, complex and simple, inspiring and troubling – Africa always has the power to confound, and that is why we love it so much. With each successive trip, whether climbing to remote rock-hewn churches, studying the behaviour of its iconic wildlife or spending time with diverse African communities, our affections for the continent that spawned humanity grow deeper, as does the knowledge that there is, even more to discover yet. Just like its horizons, the opportunities in Africa are endless. And that is the reason it keeps pulling us back over and over again.”

- What is your favourite African landscape?
I couldn’t pick just one, there are special places and moments all around; The Tundra desert, the Raging Waterfalls, its flora or even its people, full of smiles, deep in community and tradition.
- What is your favourite scent, taste and sound?
Fresh fruits and vegetables, the taste of organic eats, homegrown with love, is second to none. My favourite sound is the ocean. It reminds me of evenings on the porch and the dawn of a much needed evening breeze after a hot day.
- Which would the greatest memory coming from African continent be?
The freedom in, and of nature, as it was intended.
- If you could only bring one thing back with you the next time you visit South Africa, what would it be?
9 months of uninterrupted sunshine.
- South Africa or the UK?
My heart is always in South Africa.
Has Africa stolen your heart? It definitely has ours!
