My love affair for travel in Africa began in 1965. My Dad was an explorer. He travelled through the most remote places and jungles on his intrepid journeys through Mozambique and surrounding northern countries.
From childhood, I have appreciated different cultures, an attitude encouraged by my father, who spoke as he was inspired through our travels to foreign lands.
I fell irretrievably in love with the people, culture and landscapes along my journeys of new discoveries.
During the remote explorations I was bitten by bugs, mosquito’s, seen indigenous snakes, danger encounters with crocodiles, hippos and sharks… believe it or not but I was continuously humbled by the generosity of the local tribes as they took us into their shelters.
I was locked in a long relationship with this mother continent ever since. I am blessed by the best camera in the world which was one’s eyes. The most beautiful photos were my memories.
Over the last decade after earning enough of Bush and Taxi Miles figuring where to go next …………………. a love affair was born. Christley International is founded by Raymond & Shareefa Christley in 2010.
