Many think that Africa is a country – it is not it’s a continent and a continent so vast that the United States of America, China, India and Western Europe could fit inside it and still leave some room for a few more countries!
Hazel has 20 years of travel experience focussing on Africa, an area she is hugely passionate about.
Having spent 9 years living in South Africa, she was fortunate enough to travel extensively in the region and has visited Botswana, Zambia, Kenya, Mozambique, Zanzibar and Seychelles amongst others.

This week’s blog is on the seven lesser known animals that you could get the chance to see on safari.
Namibia is located in southern Africa and is known for its natural attractions. The highlights include Etosha National Park, Fish River Canyon Park, the Namib desert, and the Kalahari Desert.
Known as, ‘the warm heart of Africa,” this country in the southern region of the continent is a top destination. It’s known for its stunning lake and its friendly people. And, its wildlife sightings are unique compared to the rest of Africa.
This week’s blog is a guide to the seven best beaches in Mozambique. Mozambique is quite often left off the list when holiday destinations are being considered but if there is one reason to consider Mozambique it is the fact that you will struggle to find beaches as beautiful anywhere else in the world.
So, what makes a beach a great beach let alone a ‘best’ beach? Perhaps it has the sand that is so white it blinds you or that the sand is just so unbelievably soft. Or the water is crystal blue? Or it has a stunning and remote location?
This week’s blog is about the five signs of hope that we are being given by charities and organisations that are trying to save many different species from becoming extinct.
On an African safari, you’ll be able to find beauty from every angle. But, one of the best ways to witness its beauty is from a bird’s eye view.
Accommodation can sometimes be a little bland, anyone who’s ever stayed at any of any of the big chain hotels – no names mentioned – will not know where they are until they look outside; the accommodation is so ‘corporate’.
For unadulterated luxury, it simply has to be The Seychelles. An archipelago of more than 100 islands scattered into the Indian Ocean, The Seychelles is a heavenly mix of paradise beaches, untouched coral reefs, national parks and nature reserves, and secluded islands that have just enough room for you and your beau.
