Carrie Hampton

Travel Writer 

As a content creator, I don’t just use words to describe what I see; I create stories and scenes that take the reader somewhere new and unexpected. To get a sense of my work, explore this portfolio of my travel articles, books, safari lodge reviews and training courses, covering southern and East Africa safari, adventures, activities, people, food, culture, communities and photographs.


This website shows my life as a freelance travel writer and content creator.

I was born in London, landed in Africa aged 37 and never left. By chance and through writing and contributing to seven guide books and coffee table books, I ended up going on African safaris a lot! So much so, that over the past 25 years I have personally visited most National Parks and Reserves of southern and east Africa and over 250 safari lodges.

 Probably more than anyone else in the world!

I'm a Senior Writer, with years of experience creating content, writing websites, blogs, articles, newsletters, social media, press releases and any written material to communicate with the audience.  I write with the reader in mind regardless of the subject, and produce well-researched, engaging, well-written, search-engine friendly content, on any topic.
