About Ellie Mitchell
I grew up immersed in the travel industry, and have been travelling all my life. Being a keen horse rider, galloping alongside herds of giraffe and zebra in the African bush, and riding bareback on the shores of Bazaruto Island, just off the coast of Mozambique, have been real highlights of my life.
