Meet the Team

You’ll find us hard at work and play in our beautiful home city of Cape Town. We share news and reviews with our travel community, tailor-make exceptional vacations and regularly set off to discover the best Africa has to offer for ourselves. Firsthand.

At the heart of everything we do, you’ll find you: the modern adventurer, safari romantics or intrepid family of explorers. We are as varied as you are, from experts to behind-the-sceners:

Africa Safari Experts

Our expert consultants are well travelled and skilled at match-making your preferences with the lodges and locations that will deliver a vacation you’ll never forget. Their advice is free and impartial. Meet our Africa Safari Experts or get to know their fearless leader, Jonty Medcalf

Safari Support

This team issues your travel documents, triple checks every step of your journey and re-confirms your flights and reservations. They'll support you 24/7 while you travel too – with our compliments. Meet our Safari Support Stars.

Product Specialists

This experienced crew forges our relationships with suppliers in the destinations we recommend. They curate the quality of every supplier in your itinerary based on four essential measures: exceptional guest care, best value for money, a track record of reliability, and ethical business practices. Meet our Supplier Care Advocates and their Deal Maker, Liesel.


Keeping your vacation budget as safe as houses, this team is responsible for our super secure, easy to use online payment system. They also maintain our accreditation bond with SATSA, your ultimate peace of mind. Meet our Money Honeys, and their officer in charge, Renier

There are more Go2Africans hard at work (and having a ball) behind-the-scenes.

People Wranglers

Go2Africans are a passionate bunch who share a culture of excellence and integrity. Recruiting new members is something of an art, and we treat training, career development, large doses of adventure and occasional free pizza as quintessential requirements for a happy workforce. Meet our Positivity Activists and their Champion of Cheer, Gillian. Read more about joining us.


Our talented team of analysts, writers, editors, designers, photographers and videographers creates the content that inspires our community of safari travellers. Meet our Head of Marketing, Nadia.


We’ve led the field in online safari travel since 1998 thanks to a commitment to cutting edge tech and in-house developers and web designers. This talented but secretive band keeps our business system and website ahead of the curve. Meet our Business Systems Manager, Neil.


Go2Africa’s visionary founder, Mark Preyer, is the tech-minded entrepreneur behind our success. His partner in crime, Joanne Dickson, set the exacting service standards that have seen us bring over 60 000 happy travellers to Africa since 1998. Thanks to their combined commitment to innovation and client satisfaction, Go2Africa is one of the most trusted Africa safari specialists, and proud of its famous dedication to you, the traveller.

In 2015, Targe Capital purchased 40% of Go2Africa and Joanne left the company after a decade of delivering exceptional service. Targe Capital, managed by Gary Macdonald and Greg Fury, is a private equity firm investing in medium sized, privately owned South African businesses.

In 2016, Mark appointed Maija de Rijk-Uys as Go2Africa's new Managing Director. True to the company's evolutionary spirit, Maija has set her sights on taking Go2Africa to new heights.
