Christine fell in love with Africa over 30 years ago when she first visited South Africa. She has such a passion for the country that she made Cape Town her home many years ago and has eagerly promoted the continent ever since. She joined Africa Travel in 2008 and is now heading the Cape Town office, where she has her finger very much on the pulse of what is hip and hot. Some of her favourite places are the beaches of the Garden Route and the more remote areas of the Cederberg and Drakensberg Mountains and, aside from discovering more of her adopted homeland with her husband and two teenage sons, she also enjoys, hiking and horse-riding.
What is your favourite place in Africa?
It has to be Namibia. I took a road trip from Cape Town to Luderitz in July 2015, travelling via the amazing Fish River Canyon. This is the land of open space, amazing sceneries, unspoilt nature, wild horses and many places untouched by the human hand. A 7-day trip left me wanting to go back and see more of this wonderful country.
What is your most memorable experience in Africa?
Looking down at the Fish River Canyon in Namibia and looking up at Table Mountain in Cape Town every day! I also enjoy escorting our groups in and around Cape Town. The Cedarberg is also still a favourite on my list.
Where would you like to visit next and why?
I would to love to go to Etosha National Park in Namibia but also the Okavango Delta in Botswana but anywhere in Africa it would be fantastic!
What's your best advice for someone travelling to Africa?
Don’t be afraid to explore remote places. Africa will amaze you! Go on safari, explore the oceans, the rivers, the National Parks, there are endless experiences. The cities are great in South Africa but once you leave the city, be prepared for amazing scenery that will take your breath away, friendly locals and not to forget the wildlife.
