Annelies Hickendorff set first foot in Gabon during an Africa Overland trip in 2006. In a 20-year-old Landcruiser she drove more than 25 000 km from her hometown in the Netherlands to reach South Africa. This journey gave her a passion for Africa in general and Central Africa in particular: the dense tropical rainforests, exceptional natural beauty and mystic peoples put a spell on her and she has been returning to the region ever since.

Annelies has been working in communications in several Sub-Saharan countries and has a keen interest in the link between environment and development.
