About Holly Meadows

I’m Holly – Assistant Editor @ Safari – Africa Geographic's digital travel magazine. Born and raised in the rural British Counties, my mother began life on a sugar farm in Zululand. After reading Anthropology at university in London, working for a political activist filmmaker in India, and doing a short stint under the bright lights of Bollywood – I decided it was time to return to the motherland.

Now, I’ve landed up in the hallways of Africa Geographic.
