Assalamualaikum (Peace be upon you)
My name is Sara. I am a Muslim woman living in Johannesburg, South Africa and a passionate traveller, freelance travel writer and travel blogger. I have been to around 47 countries thus far, and am always eager to add more to the count. My primary website is http://inafricaandbeyond.com. Please do pay it a visit.
During my travels as a Muslim who only eats halaal food and specifically zabihah halaal meat, we often encounter difficulties finding halaal-suitable food in non-Muslim countries. The information on the Internet can be misleading or outdated as we often discover. Masjids are often not easy to find although this is changing rapidly. On the positive side, sometimes we find masjids and halaal food in the most unexpected places.
On this website, I will write about Muslim-specific travel information as well as the Muslim-friendliness of the countries I visit . For more information about my experiences in those places, please visit In Africa and Beyond.
I will also be featuring my “South Africa Halaal” Instagram account. To follow, click here:
