MzansiGirl, otherwise known as Meruschka Govender, is one of South Africa’s most sought after travel influencers. She truly is the queen of travel content, sharing her passion for Africa around the topics of food, African travel, culture and budget travel. Her case of wanderlust started in 2003 when she embarked on a journey backpacking from Joburg to Malawi. She resigned from her day job in 2013, to pursue her travel dreams. Since then she has been on the road, in the air, planning her next trip or sharing her findings and travel tips online.
Stumbling across such a culture rich, travel and adventurous blog, is a blessing for anyone in need of more adventure in their life. She showcases Africa as a top travel destination and paints the picture that one does not need to seek adventure internationally as Africa just has so much to offer. Local travel is not showcased enough and many of the experiences and treasure troves out there are unknown to many. However, MzansiGirl is doing a brilliant job of leading us to some of Africa’s most mesmerizing and wondrous spots.
She sums herself up pretty well in the following words. “I’m an Afrophile at heart – I love African travel, music and festivals. I love the energy of African cities, her amazing people, the sounds of the bush, the fabulous sunsets, diverse cultures and beauty everywhere. I’ve spent 8 years working in the tourism sector in all aspects from running a backpacker hostel, to working for South Africa’s only tourism NGO and eventually working in tourism policy in national government. ‘’ Says MzansiGirl.
MzansiGirl doesn’t just have a passion for all things travel, she has a love and a passion for people. She has involved herself in several volunteering programs, with MySchool and other NGO’s across South Africa. Her love for her country and devotion towards people and the greater good make her a true African leader. This powerhouse of a woman is everywhere. If you follow her social feeds you will be taken through the hills and African horizons, exposed to culture rich destinations, tantalized by her discovery of divine foods and get the low down on whats hip and happening in Joburg. Her passion and authentic voice are what makes her blog and social media feeds stand out from the rest. Mzansigirl’s feeds are not the typical airbrushed Bali girl type content, instead she gives real insight into the authentic adventures and experiences Africa has to offer. She adds her own unique flavor and energy to her writings, missions and in all she does.
With an appetite for adventure and her love for people, MzansiGirl is flying over hurdles and making every day count. We love local travel and if you do to, she is bringing all the secrets and travel tips you need to turn your travel dreams into a reality.#localiszappa #localtravel
