When she was fifteen, Tammie Matson went on safari with her father to Zimbabwe - and it changed her forever. Back in Australia she turned her life upside down to build her future in Africa. Returning to the safari camps - this time as a worker - she out-ran a charging lioness, played with a cheetah, stumbled across poachers and watched with amazement as a witchdoctor struck fear into his victims' hearts. This was the adventure she was looking for and deciding to study zoology gave her a reason to stay. When the Zimbabwean war vets grew too threatening, Tammie headed to the Etosha National Park in Namibia. In that harsh, dry, devastatingly beautiful land, she has overcome the language barrier, the male-dominated society and the physical hardships to create a life she loves.
