That’s ok—you have now! We’re always happy to meet time-tested travel industry colleagues who don’t know us yet – That’s because we are a boutique tour operator. We were founded in 2009 by our current CEO Joz Marc Obwalatum – a former safari guide with practical knowledge of all the 04 destinations we go to. Our Advertisement budget is still low and therefore most of our tours still come in as word of mouth – its the way we like to keep it.
