Kiah Preyer - Welcome to my page!
I was born in Cape Town and have lived here all my life, apart from a year spent working in London after high school. As much as I loved the buzz of the UK, I couldn't stay away from the sunshine, beaches, and mountains of Cape Town for too long.
Throughout my childhood, school holidays were spent with my family up the Garden Route or camping and off-roading through South Africa and Namibia, and this is where my love of travelling and the outdoors was born. As my siblings and I grew older, we had the opportunity of visiting some incredible destinations in Southern Africa.
The one year we piled into the car to spend a week traversing the dunes of the Namib Desert; another year we spent a few weeks on safari in Zimbabwe, followed by an amazing few days at the Victoria Falls. From then until now, there has hardly been one long weekend or holiday that I have stayed at home. Be it a road trip to Knysna or Plett, a camping trip with friends, a visit to the Breede River, a safari, or a trip overseas - I will always squeeze every minute out of my time off (and every cent out of my travel savings).
Where have I been?
Cape Town, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Garden Route, Sun City, Pilanesberg National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve, Eastern Cape Safaris, Kruger National Park and the Greater Kruger Region, the Orange River, Namib Desert, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe Safaris, and Zambia.
Internationally I've visited England, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Croatia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, The Netherlands, and India.
My Favourite Travel Moment
Waking up each morning in India, having a look at the map, and deciding where to go next. It was my first true 'backpacking' experience and something that I will never forget.
What I love about Africa
The diversity: white sandy beaches, incredible mountains, deserts, forests, jungles, waterfalls, rivers, big cities, tiny villages, and (of course) the bush.
Some African Travel Advice
Don't rush! You can always come back again to explore the other places on your wish list.
Where I'd like to go next
My dream destinations to visit are the Seychelles, and Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania.
