Originally from London, Lizzie Williams has been travelling since 1995, beginning in Africa. Starting out on trips across the continent as a tour leader, she has sat with a gorilla, slept amongst elephants, fed a giraffe and swum with a hippo. For Footprint, she is author of several African titles and many of the Caribbean Islands handbooks. Lizzie also regularly contributes to numerous magazines and writes destination guides for leading websites specializing in African travel. When not on the road, she counts herself very lucky to call beautiful Cape Town home.
