Helen in Wonderlust Zanzibar

Welcome to Helen in Wonderlust!

I love to travel all over the world, but it’s Africa travel that I’m most passionate about!

My mission for this site (and in life) is to is to help people travel Africa in an authentic, safe, fun, adventurous and ethical way.

I started this blog with the aim to share information, dispel myths about the African continent, and encourage and help others travel to travel. I’ve also written a 300+ page e-book called The Independent Traveller’s Guide to Backpacking Africa!

When I’m not writing and sharing travel tips on my blog, you’ll find me leading adventure tours in Africa with my tour company Rock My Adventure. We run tours in 16 different African countries across east, West and Southern Africa.

You can read more about me, and my story here.
