As a keen travel and wildlife photographer, my photography equipment is really important to me.
- Fujifilm XT100 – This entry-level mirrorless camera has been responsible for the vast majority of images on my blog in the past year. I actually won it as part of a Fujifilm travel photography competition in 2018 and it hasn’t left my side since. It’s because of this camera that I’m very close to trading in all of my old Nikon gear and upgrading to Fujifilm! Find out more about this camera on Amazon.
- Fujifilm XT3 – I’m now desperately saving up for the Fujifilm XT3 – a professional-grade mirrorless camera that offers exceptional image quality in a small and relatively light body. Intrigued? Find out more about the camera and check the latest prices on Amazon now.
- Fujifilm 100-400mm Telephoto Lens – I have previously rented this lens from Hireacamera for my safari to Kenya and instantly fell in love. Its focal length allows you to get up close and personal with the big 5 and much smaller creatures too. The photos it produces are beautiful, making this lens well worth the hefty price tag!

Over the past couple of years, I have become a raving fan of a number of ethical fashion brands who share my passion for sustainability.
- Craghoppers – Craghoppers are committed to sustainability, with fabrics made from recycled materials, responsible sourcing and charitable partnerships. My favourite range that Craghoppers make is Nosilife. Each item of Nosilife clothing features insect repellent technology built into the fabric, making it an ethical and eco-friendly way to keep those pesky biting insects away when you’re travelling. Head to craghoppers.com to see the full range.
- tentree – I adore tentree clothes. They’re incredibly well made, beautifully designed and all with the planet in mind. They use sustainable practices, ethical manufacturing and recycled materials in all their garments. Plus, for every item purchased, tentree will plant 10 trees in places the planet needs it most.

- Allbirds – Widely hailed the most comfortable shoes in the world (and I completely agree!), Allbirds has an aim to become carbon neutral through their approach to sustainability and natural materials. View the full range now!
- Kind Clothing – Another great company for responsibly-sourced and beautiful clothes, Kind Clothing creates vegan, ethical and cruelty-free t-shirts and sweatshirts from eco-friendly materials. The designs are really cute and help you tell your story through messages like ‘Be Kind’, ‘There is No Planet B’ and ‘No Honey’. Check them out here!
As well as clothing and photography equipment, there are a few travel companies and services I swear by.
- Booking.com – I use booking.com to book most of my hotels when I’m travelling. I love the huge number of accommodation options available, and the free cancellation and ability to pay later make it a great way to plan trips with no pressure. Head to booking.com now.
- G Adventures – G Adventures offers small group adventure tours across the world. I have personally travelled with them to Cuba and Costa Rica, and have plans to travel with them to Brazil too. Their itineraries are fun, flexible and built to support local communities, which is exactly why I love them. Read more about G Adventures here.
- Priority Pass – If you like to relax before a flight, subscribe to Priority Pass and you’ll get access to a range of airport lounges across the world. I’ve used the pass in the UK and South Africa and have found it to be great value for money. I’ve enjoyed free food, drinks and really comfy seats to wait in – some even offer showers and massages too! Find out more about the Priority Pass here.
- Airbnb – Another one of my favourite websites to book accommodation on is Airbnb. I love the variety you can find, from glamping pods to beautiful beach huts, and from cosy cottages to plush apartments all across the world. Find your next stay on Airbnb now!
