Sara Evans is a freelance writer, specialising in travel and wildlife. Her work has been published around the globe. Magazines and newspapers that have featured her stories include the Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, Independent on Sunday, BBC Wildlife Magazine, The Australian, The Age and African Geographic. Sara has also contributed to the Bradt Travel Guide to Congo and the Bradt Travel Guide to Angola and been a member of Bradt’s travel-writing panels.
Most of Sara’s travels have focused on the world’s most extraordinary creatures – with journeys taking her from the icy waters of Arctic Canada to the dusty plains of southern Africa in search of them. This is because Sara is passionate about the role of travel in supporting wildlife conservation; believing that the telling of stories about our last wild places, about the extraordinary animals and people that live, or once lived in them, is essential. Doing so enables people to revisit and explore their histories and myths. It allows the sharing of experiences that illuminate and inspire, ultimately supporting the survival of all that is threatened and vanishing.
Sara is also the author of three books: The Real Life Guide to Travel and Tourism and The Travel Industry Uncovered, both published by Trotman; and When The Last Lion Roars, published by Bloomsbury. The latter tells the story of the rise and fall of the king of the beasts and details Sara’s encounters with lions and conservationists in various African countries.
