How do we intend to do this?
We’re updating the site with exceptional professional wildlife and nature photography, offering an objective commentary about the countries we pass through, as well as reviewing and recommending eco-friendly establishments along the way.
We aim to work on various permaculture projects and raise money to help these organisations to teach Africa's people to become self-sufficient.
We’re dedicated to bringing you informed, well-researched articles about the environment and what we can do to conserve it through sustainable eco-travel.
And how did we end up doing this?
Let me introduce myself first. My name is Melissa and I’m a copywriter and journalist from South Africa. While working in Dubai, I realised that the earth is increasingly stressed, and we need to take action.
After I attended a permaculture design course in South Africa, my husband Christopher and I began planning
We hope our trip will generate awareness about sustainable lifestyles and travel - and with your help and that of environmentally-friendly corporations - raise funds to help green Africa.
So come enjoy the incredible ecologically-vibrant wonder that is Africa and through your travels, make a difference to every living thing on earth.
Eco-travel & Lifestyles
Hi, my name is Melissa and I created this site together with photographer Christopher List to help spread awareness about green lifestyles and travel, so everyone can learn how easy it is to live in a sustainable way. Enjoy!
I wasn't sure what a permaculture design course was about, until I read through Melissa's fantastic blog! I've signed up and soon I'll be a PDC graduate too.

The link between personal responsibility and preserving our environment is becoming increasingly clear to me. Reading up on simple ways to be more eco-friendly in my life and travels has really helped me practice what I preach.
