Description

In the elegant surroundings of the Clissold Arms, this evening will inspire you and help you to discover a side of Africa you may not have known or imagined! Join us at this magical celebration of Africa and warm your winter evening. We will be raising funds for Wild&Free with a raffle of beautiful prizes, a silent auction, the sale of wildlife photos and charity merchandise that will make perfect Christmas cards and presents for the special people in your lives.

I first fell in love with Africa 17 years ago, and I've been in love ever since. The richly beautiful wildlife, landscapes, people and cultures of this vast continent have captivated me throughout my many solo trips and visits with family, friends or as part of bigger groups. I've had the enormous pleasure of exploring and enjoying many African countries on a budget, mid-range and in luxury style.

It is also in Africa that I started volunteering for wildlife causes, which led to the creation of my charity, Wild&Free - Rehabilitation and Release, in October 2014. To date, the charity has supported 8 species in carefully chosen wildlife rehabilitation centres or local organisations in 6 countries that have successfully returned many rescued wild animals back to their natural habitat.

I've met many like-minded and passionate people over the years who have also been bitten by the 'African bug'. But I've also come across a lot of people who are hesitant about going on safari in Africa, in most part as a result of the media's fixation on the continent's crime and poverty.

My hope is that by joining me while I share a few of my special passions in one evening, more people will feel the love for Africa, while supporting the conservation of wild animals and their habitats.

I really look forward to seeing you there!
