Phaka Hlazo


Having traveled over 35 000 kms of the African continent by road, I am passionate about helping the world discover the transformative experiences I have had the privilege of enjoying in countries which have historically suffered much misrepresentation. I have engaged in Tenson’s Community with Purpose to connect with like-minded individuals and online communities who are passionate about making a difference and contributing to a sustainable, more equitable, world.
