Mariam Ngoyi - Welcome to my profile!
My Recent Travels
I was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. After completing my tertiary education in Event & Tourism Management, I was glad to find myself joining Go2Africa, one step closer to exploring our continent of Africa.
I am family-orientated and very reserved, but also love spending time with friends. I love Cape Town - I adore it! There is so much to do and see. I love visiting unfamiliar places, meeting different people from all walks of life and learning about distinct cultures and experiences.
I am passionate about travel and love to assist with my clients’ travel plans, slowly turning their dreams into reality.
Where have I travelled
During my journey from the DRC to South Africa, my family and I explored Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Swaziland. I wish I was old enough to have had a better understanding and appreciate what was happening at the time.
During December 2016, I was in Kenya, and spent some time in the capital city, Nairobi, and the gorgeous Nairobi National Park, which offers great wildlife experiences and city views in the background. I would love to return and experience the Masai Mara.
During my uni years, I visited the impeccable Garden Route and West Coast areas. I also love the Cape Winelands, which always give such serenity and peace of mind. This area of Cape Town is always a perfect weekend getaway destination.
What I love about Africa
I love that Africa is rich in culture, diversity and wildlife. There are so many journeys to undertake, from beach resorts and Big 5 safaris to gorilla-trekking expeditions.
Some African Travel advice
Africa is very different to how it is perceived by many. It’s a developing continent but still retains its uniqueness. Home to the Big 5 and gentle giants in the rich Congo forests, Africa is a bucket-list destination. If you can, you should come to Africa and get a front-row seat of a real-life National Geographic Wild documentary.
