JANINE MARÉ is the first to confess that she has been bitten by the travel bug… badly. She is a lover of all things travel from basic tenting with creepy crawlies to lazing in luxury lodges; she will give it all a go. Janine is passionate about wildlife and conservation and comes from a long line of biologists, researchers and botanists. Janine heads up marketing at Africa Geographic when she is not out exploring Africa. On her latest adventure, Janine travelled to Victoria Falls to ride the raging waters of the mighty Zambezi, whizz through the forest of Batoka Gorge and dance away the last night of 2015. Read all about it in VIC FALLS, AFRICA’S ADVENTURE CAPITAL.
