I’m Lori Robinson.

I grew up barefoot, surrounded by animals.

  • My older half-brother used our bathtub as a snake aquarium, and shared his bunk bed with our pet goat.
  • Our pet squirrel monkey slept in my mother’s hair.
  • My father’s idea of a fun outing for my sister and I (my parents were divorced) was birdwatching.

I write this blog to:

  • Celebrate humans connections to animals and nature
  • Kindle the fire in each of us calling for more wildness
  • Spread compassion for all animals
  • Connect animal lovers worldwide
  • Ignite the spirit of ‘Africa’ that lives inside us all


I hope you will become part of the tribe at AfricaInside – SIGN UP.
