Africa

A Batwa elder in Bwindi, UgandaFor over ten years, Sue has held a long-distance love affair with Africa, drawn back time and again to its wildlife and wilderness, its mountains and mayhem, and its icons and islands.

Mountain Gorilla in Rwanda's Volcanoes National ParkDuring her travels, she’s achieved her own high-altitude take on Africa’s Big Five, climbing the five highest mountains on the continent - Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in Tanzania, Mount Kenya, Mount Stanley in Uganda, and Ras Dashen in Ethiopia. She’s trekked through the rainforests of Rwanda and Uganda to see mountain gorillas, tracked cheetah and leopards in Namibia’s savannah and followed wild elephants on foot in the wilderness of the Selous in Tanzania.

She’s kayaked on a stormy Lake Malawi and plunged into the depths of Uganda’s Nile attempting grade 5 rapids on a white-water rafting experience she vows never to repeat. And when the adventures are over, she’s chilled on Indian Ocean islands including Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia in Tanzania, Lamu in Kenya , and Ilha do Mozambique.

Throughout her experiences, she’s been constantly inspired by African people and their passion. She’s met tribal communities in Ethiopia’s Omo Valley and the Batwa Pygmies of Uganda, orphans and teachers in volunteer projects in Kenya, women’s groups in Namibia’s capital city of Windhoek and conservationists in the heart of Tanzania's southern Selous and in Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park.
