We are a small family of local entrepreneurs – in various spaces of travel, transport, fashion, tree planting, ecological projects, grassroots project development, volunteering and even food and beverage space – we simply share a passion for Southern Africa, it’s people and it’s magic and want you to have MORE than just a holiday.
Since 2012, we specialize in travelling while avoiding all the touristy shit (we said it. sorry). There is so much more to Southern Africa than facts about lions, stories about Kruger and Cape Town or just another selfie with a black child.
For now, here are 3 quotes that inspire us to do what we do.
“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” Lao Tzu
We operate with Spontaneous Itineraries – that means there’s no set plan. Our accommodation is booked with 3 or 4 major activities… the rest is ours to explore the old fashioned way… without a guide book and a map.
Aldous Huxley once said, “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries”
We dare you to explore and to come and find out for yourself. The media anywhere in the world is wrong because, for any country or most news they share, they judge from the outside. Things aren’t easy in Africa, this is true and there are many hardships and wrongdoings here… but so it is in most places in the world.
And last but not least…
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts,” wrote Mark Twain in The Innocents Abroad. “Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can not be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
Travel inspires. Travel fills up your soul-tank and shows you how much more there is in the world that we can learn from. It teaches appreciation for the simpler things and leaves you in AWE of nature which has a list of health effects. Travel teaches you an appreciation for other people and cultures. And shows you how we are not all that different.
Travel can change not only YOUR life but the people and places you visit as well. That is the goal. Some destinations, game reserves and some countries are dependant on visitors and what you spend there.
A healthy view of the world is truly what humanity needs. This breeds more activism and better humans so we can grow into a better world with ALL humans caring for it. And do so fast!
South Africa, the insanely beautiful and immensely diverse country at the tip of probably the most famous continent, has something install for you…
For hundreds of years, South Africa has been a melting pot of cultures with ships passing the tip of Africa, a meeting place on the shores, a culmination of excitement and intrigue as people are lured here almost by instinct. Like a distant but clear “call of the Wild” to visit the place where civilisation might have started.
This is a page to show – and tell – you more about Southern Africa… our paradise found. We will take you into the hidden valleys and the hearts of the people that live here. We want to take you by the hand to show you the REAL Southern Africa and all its little corners.
We would like you to look past the fancy marketing, past the adventurous & laid back lifestyle, and let you sit on a hill with a sunset… and experience African Life for yourself.
