Whether its the rust colored sands of the dunes in the Namib Desert or the aquamarine waters of Cape Town, Lee Litumba always makes her destinations captivating.

Armed with a leap of faith, Cameroonian model Lee Litumba quit her corporate finance job in America and moved to South Africa to travel the continent. She saved up for the journey ahead and sold all of her belongings. Now, she is one of the most inspiring travellers on the continent, as Elle Canada named her among the most “Inspiring Instagram Accounts that Make You Want to Travel”.

What makes Lee's Instagram feed so inspiring though is her use of photography as a tool to shape poignant narratives on cultural immersion, bringing fresh perspectives to travel experiences off-the-beaten track.

On her website and personal blog, Spirited Pursuit, she says:

"Africa is in dire need of rebranding and to be captured through inspired eyes. I wanted to be part of that rebrand by sharing my personal stories and genuine experiences as a solo female traveler throughout the continent."
