Viva South is a world class travel & lifestyle blog founded in 2017 by Taona Carissa – a travel enthusiast pursuing the most exotic locations from jaw-dropping caldera views in Santorini to discovering the Big 5 in East Africa. I have explored four continents so far and hope to inspire you to discover more whilst juggling my corporate job. My roots lie in Germany and Zimbabwe; I guess one can say I was born for adventure 😉
