Africa’s wildlife and spectacular landscapes captivated me when I lived there as a child. I found the elephants especially endearing. We were adventurous and kept all sorts of pets. Sara, our rescue serval cat, lived with us for several years. Our neighbours cared for an orphaned elephant calf and a cheetah cub after their mothers were taken by poachers.
We also lived in the UK and Turkey before emigrating to New Zealand, where I graduated from Vet School.
Africa is always in my thoughts and her wildlife close to my heart.
