I am part of the great team of African Travel Gateway for 13 years now. We specialize in tailor-made safaris and tours to fit your budget and still give you the experience of a lifetime! Love to be of assistance to each one, creating unique itineraries to fit each and everyone to their best needs! Making exciting, new tours and safaris that will give you a dream to fulfill and be passionate about it!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in 10 Southern & East Africa countries, namely: South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland, Tanzania, Kenya & Zanzibar. Our activities range from various types of safaris to the more regular tours to cities and non-safari adventures in the region like Cape Town, train journeys, beach holidays and horse back safaris."

How did you get involved in travel?

"By spending a lot of time in nature, like the Kruger National Park, South Africa, it makes one to share with the world the diversity, beauty and glamirous time you have between the wild animals and great time on hand! Wanted something new, exciting, making each day different to the previous day! This is what got me going!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Went to see Victoria Falls and a short visit to Chobe area in Botswana, the falls are beautiful and the people great. Got to experience the Okavango Delta in Botswana as well and I must say that is something special and to keep for life! Nature is something you did not create, but it is there for you to enjoy!"
