It's a Woman's World Series 1
Camilla Andersen seeks out some fantastic female companionship for her latest tour of the globe. Starting out in South Africa, Camilla is soon jealously witnessing a much more glamorous side to TV presenting than she is used to as she hangs out with ex-Miss South Africa Jo-Ann Strauss. However, forced in front of the lens with model Lee Simon, Camilla soon wishes to be out of the spotlight. Moving on to Johannesburg, Camilla meets Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the Princess of Africa and hears what happened when Nelson Mandela dropped by. The Philippines sees Camilla donning maid's outfits, ballet leotards and ten-pin bowling shoes while she meets some delightful Philippinas in the country's capital, Manila. Whilst in Turkey, Camilla continues her new found dressing up fetish by enrolling in a belly dancing school before meeting one of the only female Whirling Dervishes. Finishing up in her spiritual home of Jamaica, Camilla takes the opportunity to learn some bump and grind and electric slide moves. Sensational dancehall diva and actress Cherine Anderson then takes Camilla to the studio to see her in action with legendary Sly Dunbar from Sly and Robbie. Let's hear it for the ladies.

Camilla Andersen joins ex-Miss South Africa Jo-Ann Strauss in Cape Town for a look at the glamour that seems to elude her in her own TV travel show hosting and ends up feeling rather awkward in front of the photographer's lens. Next, an ex-political prisoner is her guide to some heartbreaking tales on Robben Island, while in Johannesburg, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the Princess of Africa, entertains Camilla with tales of having Nelson Mandela over for dinner. Later on she struggles to keep her lunch down as she looks in at a shark dissection and her adventures continue when in Kruger a herd of elephants descend on her jeep.
Manila sees Camilla donning maid's outfits, ballet leotards and ten-pin bowling shoes while she meets some delightful Philippinas in the country's capital. An enjoyable day spent with award-winning actress Vilma Santos ends on the dance floor with a personal lesson in bump and grind, Philippina-style. Heading to Cebu Camilla joins the adorable angel procession as part of Flores de Mayo and, next day, sees processions of a totally different kind at an infamous prison. Local governor Gwendolyn Garcia takes Camilla to the detention centre housing the youtube sensation, the dancing inmates, before she winds up with a relaxing stay in Bohol, where Hilot massages, fist sized primates and chocolate hills round off her eventful foray into Asia.

Next up is a crash course in belly dancing, as she joins Bahar's class to learn some moves and witness their enchanting performances. Traveling south and visiting the Ephesus Ruins Camilla imagines life for women back in the day and stumbles across an unlikely calling as a kitchen hand in ?irince, dodging barking orders in a language she hasn't quite mastered. In Izmir a coffee grind reading spells out a surprising fate for Camilla before she heads to tourist magnet Cappadocia.

In gritty Kingston Marcia Griffiths teaches Camilla the Electric Slide and shares some great tales from her illustrious career on a visit to the Bob Marley museum.
