Its that moment when the day calms, and you are in the middle of the bush, and the burnt orange colours of the sun captivate you in such away that you forget that there is a world with a momentum of its own out there; this is one of that moments I want to share with our world citizens that have a longing to visit Southern Africa, truly diverse, and naturally captivating.

I love Africa as it simply never stops beating. Whether you are in the bush or the city. It is fascinating, the people are vibrant, our wildlife is prolific and our birds simply leave you speechless. From East Africa to Victoria Falls to Okavango Delta, the terrain changes, the smiles are endless. The wildlife is incredible and will change your life.  Our food is phenomenal and of course we have top class wines. Africa is my life, my passion and my home.
