Laura Paterson


Meet Laura Paterson


Hailing from across the border, Laura was born and brought up on a farm in Zimbabwe, where she spent most of her childhood fishing, horse riding and eating mud. Boarding school instilled in her an excellent vocabulary, a love of all sports and the intrinsic instinct to break the rules whenever possible. At 16, her parents moved to manage a lodge on the shores of Lake Kariba, and she has been passionate about conservation and wildlife ever since. A degree in English, a photography diploma, and a self-taught Masters in wine drinking soon followed in Cape Town, after which she spent two years doing travel writing and photography in South East Asia. Laura inevitably returned home to write about the continent she loves most, and hopes one day to win the lottery and build her own lodge (and private wine cellar).
