AFRICA TRAVEL WRITER - CARRIE HAMPTON



Greetings, I am Carrie Hampton, a travel writer and photojournalist, specialising in Southern & East Africa - with a strong emphasis on safari.


This website is a showcase of my travel articles and photographs. If you are an editor, it may lead you to commission me. If you are a traveller (armchair or otherwise), it may prompt you to seek my advice. And if you have already journeyed to Africa, it might remind you of your own adventures and fill you with the desire for more!

Whoever you are, I invite you to email me for advice on African accommodation or suggestions on where to go on your African holiday, or just for a chat.


I hope you enjoy this romp around the countries of: Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Swaziland and Lesotho.


For a taste of adventure, take a look at some of my illustrated travel articles and photographs, where I do such things as; get lost in the Namibian desert, gallop on horseback through Botswana's Okavango Delta, watch Kenya's wildebeest migration from a hot air ballon and dine on fried caterpillars and other strange African foods!

You can also see my South & East Africa Accommodation Reviews which are based on considerable knowledge and experience, and personal visits to over 100 safari lodges in nine African countries! I haven't had time to write up all my travel advisory reviews yet, so for now please feel free to contact me for accommodation advice and revisit this website again soon, as it will be updated often.



I have visited many hotels, guest houses and B&B's in Southern and East Africa, but my speciality is Safari Lodges. If you are thinking of travelling to Africa on safari, you will undoubtedly treat yourself to some fine bush camps and safari lodges, at a considerable cost. I suggest that you don't make your final choice of safari accommodation until you have read what I have to say about them!

Read through to my Reviews and Travel Articles, to find the ultimate safari accommodation or destination to suit you. Or if you think that there are just too many to choose from, contact me for some guidance.

You are welcome!
