Bonita Cronje - Welcome to my profile!

About Me

I was born in Johannesburg, raised in Polokwane and George and am now privileged to be living in Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I lived in London for two years and used this as a base to explore Europe and Asia.

I also lived in New Zealand for a short stint before returning to South Africa, which holds a special place in my heart and will always be home. I love travelling and this is one of the main reasons I studied Travel and Tourism. When travelling I really enjoy meeting different people and learning more about their cultures.

I really enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, curling up with a good book or spending time in the great outdoors.

Where have I travelled?

As I have lived in nine different places in South Africa and travelled every year with my family locally, I know South Africa like the back of my hand. Branching out to Africa I have also travelled to Mozambique, Zambia (which really holds something special for me), Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.

Internationally I have visited 20 countries including: England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Andora, Spain, Italy, the Czech Republic, Austria, Greece, Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia.

My favourite travel moment

When I was travelling in Zambia on a work educational, we were bouncing from lodge to lodge with not much opportunity for game viewing. Every time we got to a lodge in the evening we were bombarded with tales from travellers how they had seen five to seven leopard sightings in one day - and after five days we'd seen none!

I decided positive thinking was in order and imagined exactly how I would see my leopard. On day two in South Luangwa, our game vehicle suddenly stopped and out of the bush stepped a leopard. He walked right in front of the vehicle, stopped, turned and looked directly at me before continuing on into the bush. It was exactly like I imagined and even although I did not get a photograph the image of that leopard will be etched in my memory for a lifetime.

What I love about Africa

Africa offers a little bit of something for everybody from the bush to the beach, mountain to canyons, first world cities to third world rural experiences. It is rich in flora and fauna and diverse in cultures. It teaches you to respect, tolerate and appreciated wildlife and different cultures. And there really is nothing like an African sunset.

Some African travel advice

Africa is full of surprises and we often work on African time! When in Africa you need to relax, expect the unexpected and just enjoy your surroundings...take a moment to really appreciate everything that it has to offer you will find that you will lose your heart to this amazing continent.

Where I'd love to go next

I would really love to travel to Kenya and Tanzania in order to gain first-hand experience of these destinations and witness one of the greatest migrations in the world.

Once you come to Africa you will be bitten by the African Travel Bug and will yearn to return. Africa truly is a magical continent.

Read what our Travellers have to say

From start to finish Bonita and Go2Africa were a pleasure to work with. She provided us with numerous itinerary options and recommendations, answered a host of questions during the back and forth discussions to help us decide on the  final perfect itinerary that satisfied all our wants and our budget for our first Africa Safari. Even during the trip if there was an unexpected change, she was involved. Both we and the camp staff where we were staying were notified of any changes to be 100% sure there were no glitches in any part of the trip. This is the definition of service and attention to detail. I cannot compliment and thank her enough for her hard work, friendly, patient assistance, and attention to detail through the entire process of itinerary decision making, booking, payment, through to and including the time we were actually on the safari itself. The face and reputation of any company is determined by the attitude and ethic of the company’s employees and management. Your reputation is in very capable hands with Bonita as your public face. In addition I want to compliment your management because employees reflect their vision and attitude as well. Bonita,  I sincerely appreciate your help making this trip as special as I have dreamed of for the last 50 years.
