Guest contributor

After a few years of working in the world of economic consulting, Kate’s love of adventure, wilderness and sense of curiosity led her to move away from the city and join the Londolozi guiding team. It was amidst her years of studying politics, philosophy and economics that her love of exploring and understanding different wilderness areas in South Africa compounded through trips with friends and family. Kate has been fortunate to travel to many different corners of the world but she’ll argue that nothing quite beats being surrounded by nature watching an African sunrise or sunset, especially at Londolozi!
