Devon's passion for travel started back in college, and the year after graduating she decided to move to Cape Town to finally get her abroad experience.
She quickly fell in love with "The Mother City", which prompted her further exploration of the country. She explored along the Garden Route, went on safari in the Eastern Cape, and visited the Winelands of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Constantia. Expanding her Africa travels she also took part in an overland camping trip along the western coast of Namibia.
Her love for Africa didn't stop there. Last year she went on a month-long research trip throughout the South Africa, the Okavango Delta in Botswana and up to Victoria Falls. Just recently she returned from another research trip around the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia.

I'll never forget when…
After spending two weeks on safari in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, I thought I had seen every animal the area had to offer. As I then headed to South Africa to experience safari in the Eastern Cape, I was excited to see the different landscapes and animal encounters within Shamwari Game Reserve. I came to Africa with high hopes of seeing lions, but taking it a step further, I wanted to see lion cubs. Finding young cubs is extremely difficult, as I had seen six-month old cubs but had given up on the little ones. After expressing my concerns to my guide he was determined to make my dream a reality. Mid game drive he started furiously driving to a disclosed location, leaving myself and the other guests in the dark. As the vehicle came to a halt, within the clearing between two bushes lay a family of lions — a female lioness and her five one-month old cubs. The cubs were playing and crawling all over each other as the mother lay adjacent, intently watching and supervising their antics. It was absolutely amazing. I wanted to take one home.
