Amanda is a writer and wildlife photographer. She was born in London in 1967 and her early years were spent following her parents around the globe. By thirteen she had lived in England, Australia, America and Africa. When her studies were complete, Amanda set off to explore Africa on her own. From 1987 onwards she travelled – whether by combi, overland truck or private Land Rover – throughout Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa – where her family have a home. In 1999, she moved to Africa permanently to pursue a serious creative career. Now she is the logistics brain behind umSisi House, sous chef and everything else administration! She is longing to get back on the road!
