I thought it would be helpful to tell you a little bit about where my husband, Ian Saunders, and I live, as our home will feature in many stories recounted in this blog:
‘Kulafumbi’ is our family home in Kenya, East Africa, situated on the confluence of the Athi and Mtito Rivers. The property borders the Tsavo National Park – with no fences between us and the Park, the wildlife comes and goes of its own free will and treats our land as its own.
Ian and I were married here on 22nd September 2007 (after having talked about it for no less than 7 years!)
We work from here too, in office space which is donated to the Film Foundation by my father, Simon Trevor, who owns the property.
It’s a very special place, and many of the tales recounted in this blog will be about our lives here “in the middle of nowhere”, and the animals and birds that are our neighbours…
