About Founder, Farirai Sanyika

I’m Farirai Sanyika (I go by Fari), the African woman behind Gophari.

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.

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 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 near the Vaal River 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.
