Originally from London, Lizzie Williams has been travelling and writing for more than two decades.
She has authored and contributed to more than 50 guidebooks. Originally specializing in Africa, she started out on trips across the continent as a tour leader, and has sat with a gorilla, slept amongst elephants, fed a giraffe and swum with a hippo. She has authored many of Footprint's Africa titles.
Lizzie is also the author of several of Footprint's Caribbean titles. In addition, she regularly contributes to numerous magazines and websites. When not on the road, she counts herself very lucky to call beautiful Cape Town home.
