Emma Hill - Welcome to my profile!

Recent travels

My latest trip took me into the heart of Botswana's top wilderness areas for a 9-day mobile camping safari, an experience I will never forget! Have a look at my photos in Savute, Chobe, Moremi and Nxabega in the Okavango Delta.

About Me

I've lived in Cape Town, London, Wisconsin and Vermont but always return to Africa! Cape Town is definitely always home for me and so settling back in has been easy after so much travelling. I love photography, fine dining, working with enthusiastic and friendly people, travelling as much as possible and trying to explore a new place every year. Getting out of Cape Town for a weekend is always an adventure and a great way to unwind after a busy week in the city.

My passion for travel began with postcards being sent to me from all corners of the world from my father who was in the Merchant Navy. I was introduced to new places on a monthly basis and my own travel began when I left school and started exploring Africa and the world.

Where have I travelled

In South Africa - the Garden Route, Kruger National Park, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal. In the rest of Africa - Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar and Egypt.

Internationally - USA, Canada, England, Ireland, France, Holland, Madeira, Norway, Italy, Vatican City, Germany, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand.

My favourite travel moment

Soaring above the Masai Mara in a hot air balloon and my hour with the mountain gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

What I love about Africa

Its diversity and friendly people!

My African travel advice

Always take wet wipes with you on safari, plus a smile, and consider each African experience, whether it is a flat tire or an impromptu musical karaoke night with the locals as an adventure to remember.

Where I'd love to go next

A beach break on one of the Indian Ocean Islands (Mauritius or Seychelles)

Africa Safari Expert

As a photographer I often get stuck behind the lens. Take time out to just experience Africa, its sounds, smells, sights and its magic. You will be back before you know it.

Hi Emma, Apologies in the slow reply... I'm still on South Africa time! I cannot thank you enough for pulling together an experience of a lifetime! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Whilst I was a slightly nervous traveler, my fears quickly went away upon realizing what a truly wonderful country South Africa is and the brilliant organisation that had gone into the fantastic and safe accommodation along with the seamless transfers. The energy, enthusiasm and time you put into the organisation of Kato's wedding and everyone's individual trips was simply outstanding - congratulations Emma! I'm already planning to come back again very soon, words do not describe how wonderful my trip was. Thank you for EVERYTHING.
