South Africa

beyond the beaten path

Black-maned lions framed against Kalahari dunes; powdery beaches lapped by two oceans; star-studded desert skies; jagged, lush mountains – this truly is a country of astounding diversity.

I also came to the realisation that offering cookie-cutter itineraries lacking individuality was not the way I want anyone to encounter Africa,be it on a first-time trip or one of many. My main vision when Traversing Africa was conceived was that I wanted to be an architect in providing customised, personal, gratifying and life-enriching journeys to Africa and beyond to those who desire the same. I am passionate about responsible and sustainable tourism and strive to make a positive impact in the world through deeper and meaningful travel experiences.
