Where in Africa have you travelled?

Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Kenya.

What is your favourite African hidden gem?

Sausage Tree Camp in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Waking up with the river in front of me with the sun rising over it made it a perfect wake up call and canoeing was a great way to see Africa in a new light!


It had always been Maria’s dream to travel to Africa on a safari, and after her first trip she knew she would just have to keep going back. Maria’s first African experience was joining a 7 week tour through Africa. Visiting East Africa, Maria was lucky enough to experience her first ‘Big 5’ safari in Tanzania which included a visit to the Ngorongoro Crater. More recently Maria visited Namibia for the first time, self driving around this huge country with its amazing landscapes, game viewing in the mind blowing Etosha National Park, but the biggest achievement of the trip was summiting Namibia’s highest sand dune “Big Daddy” – as Maria says “it was a killer, but definitely worth it”.
