Monique Wolstenholme - Welcome to my profile!
I have lived in Cape Town most of my life but I also lived in Orlando, Florida for a year where I took part in a cultural representative programme at Disney World. I like to read, travel and meet new people. When I was at Disney, I made friends from all over the world and I was able to learn about their different cultures and about their countries.
I have always been passionate about the tourism industry. I believe that we should all go and explore and see what the world has to offer.
Where have I travelled
Recently I have been to the Kruger National Park and Madikwe Private Game Reserve, where I was able to enjoy spectacular Big 5 game viewing. Locally, I have travelled to the West Coast, the Garden Route, Sun City and have explored our beautiful ‘Mother City’ - Cape Town - from top to bottom. Internationally, I have been to the Bahamas, Miami, St Augustine, Orlando, Washington DC and New York City.
My favourite travel moment
One of my recent highlights was seeing a pack of wild dogs hunting in the Kruger. They were all around the vehicle and it was amazing to see them up close.
What I love about Africa
The reason I love Africa is because it is such a diverse continent. It is rich in culture, the people are friendly, we have breath-taking landscapes and one of the few places where you can see hundreds animals in their natural habitat.
My best African travel advice
When travelling to Africa, take your time to explore. Meet with locals and try out some of our amazing dishes.
Where I'd love to go next
My dream destination is the Seychelles. Enjoying a tropical island experience is not the only thing on my bucket list, though: I would love to explore Victoria Falls, Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta.
