Cynthia’s favorite destination in Africa
For Cynthia, it is very hard to pick only one place. She visits Mozambique annually and is in awe of its natural beauty, vibrant atmosphere and friendly locals. Cynthia has a special love for Tanzania – her first home in Africa. Tanzania is one of her favorite destinations for its variety of experiences on offer – from the immensity of the Serengeti, to the lunar landscape of Lake Natron and the 1001 shades of blue of Mafia island.
