There are so many lessons to be learnt from travel experience. What a waste to not share these lessons for others to benefit from them too. That’s what Gophari Blog is about – sharing knowledge that breaks travel barriers and empowers others to discover the beauty of South Africa and the world.

Gophari Blog is about sharing useful information, making real connections and giving honest recommendations. This blog’s main focus is on travel within South Africa as it is run by certified South African travel specialist, Farirai Sanyika. I aim to show that there is more to South Africa than Cape Town and give provinces such as Mpumalanga and Eastern Cape the spotlight. Gophari Blog is also about inspiration through vibrant images of destinations around the world because sometimes seeing really is believing!

About Founder, Farirai Sanyika

I’m Farirai Sanyika (I go by Fari). Farirai is a Shona name meaning, “Be happy.” And that’s what I am about, JOY. Truly, I am driven by happiness – seeking it, spreading it, feeling it. Other things worth mentioning is that I am a woman, I am black and I am young and I am proud of all three! Nice to meet you 🙂

I work full time as a chemical engineer and I travel and create during every bit of the time remaining. I spend my day in overalls and a hard hat which is hard for some to believe when they take a look at my social media accounts. I really am always at work and not always on holiday as it may seem. I know the leave day struggle! I stay in small town Secunda which is in Mpumalanga Province in beautiful South Africa.

I love photos. I love writing. I love connecting with people. I love exploring new places and capturing them as close as possible to my memories. That’s one of the most special things about travelling, the memories last forever. My mind is full of them and I share them all here on Gophari.com.
