My Recent Travels

Most recently I have been to Johannesburg, Sun City, Pilanesberg National Park, Welgevonden and Madikwe Game Reserves.

About me

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.

Where I’d love to go next

There are so many places I’d love to visit next, among them are Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwean side, Zanzibar, the Masai Mara, Serengeti National Park and Botswana – I think that’s enough for now!
