Alice in Afrika — a little tribute to my mother…with a lessons for all of us.

Imagine life handed you a deck of cards where the potential for a win is virtually impossible — where anything you do would be akin to climbing mount Everest barefoot. You have 2 options: struggle through it or just ignore it and — irrespective of your means — live it to the fullest.

This is the story of Alice in Afrika — akin to Alice in Wonderland — who through a mixture of absolute lack of envy for anyone, passion for helping others, a natural gift for seeing the glass half full and understanding what is really important in life — managed to go from orphan to owner of one of Africa’s most beautiful safari lodges.
