I have organized many trips to Southern Africa. Especially in South Africa, Nambia and Botswana I have been traveling since 1985. The Kruger National Park always impresses me the most. I founded my company more than 10 years ago. Since then I have been offering tours to Southern Africa as a tour operator. Be it as a self-driver in a rental car or on the small group tours we organize - we always find the right thing. We are very well connected in the regions and know all our partners personally for many years. Individuality and "wish-fulfillment" in all price ranges are our maxim - after all, it is your dream vacation.
