I recently visited Zanzibar with my colleague Stuart - read all about our experiences in his blog post, 'Zanzibar: An African Beach Paradise'

About Me

I was born in Johannesburg and grew up in South Africa before heading to Europe with my German parents to do my schooling in Germany. As a young child I toured South and Southern Africa with my family whenever we could and we were always on the road heading off to some remote place or into the bush!

I do remember going to school occasionally (!) but what I remember most was the places we visited like driving through desert landscapes and seeing snakes or little creatures that live in the sand.

Once I finished my tourism degree in Europe, my South African husband and I decided to tour Europe as well as the United States, so we took some time out and set off to enjoy a bit of the world!

On our return we decided to come and live in South Africa and although we both love travelling, my husband pursued a different career while I stayed loyal to the tourism industry where I started working in Cape Town some 17 years ago. I enjoy my job and love working with different countries in Southern Africa.

Where have I travelled

While working with group travel and incentives I had the opportunity of travelling extensively to most countries within Southern Africa like Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and of course South Africa!

Internationally I travelled extensively when I lived in Europe: I stayed in Germany and France, travelled to Italy, Croatia, Turkey, the Canary Islands, Spain, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Holland, Sweden as well as Canada (loved the Rocky Mountains!) and the United States.

My favourite travel moment

One of my favourite areas is Namibia, especially the unique rocky landscape of Damaraland and the remoteness of the Skeleton Coast.

What I love about Africa

Unique and beautiful scenery with each country in Southern Africa being so different! And of course the wildlife!

Where I’d love to go next

Internationally, Alaska for the landscape and nature! Locally I'd love to visit Malawi. I started selling this destination a couple of years ago and think it has huge potential! Untouched wilderness areas combined with Lake Malawi and the lovely scenery and remoteness one can experience there (still a real piece of Africa).

If you only visit two continents in your lifetime, visit Africa - twice' - R.Elliot. ...you can never travel to Africa too many times!

Read what our Travellers have to say

When venturing into Africa for the first time I think it sensible to find a company that can partner with you to deliver to your expectations for the spend that you have. About a year ago I googled 'Botswana safari' and Go2Africa was one of a few companies to consider. I chose Go2Africa as their feedback appeared positive and they responded (Anja) quickly. From our first contact I was impressed with Anja. We skyped to "meet" and to talk about our likes and dislikes and what we were hoping to get from our trip. I gave her a rough budget to work with. Nothing was too much trouble, even when asking lots of questions. Anja sent through information about the parks and camps (Botswana) and the islands in Mozambique. The information was clear and informative and now that we have been, accurate. We appreciated Anja's advice on visa requirements - getting this sorted in London reduced stress and to be recommended. In summary - a fantastic holiday - we thoroughly enjoyed and can recommend the combination of safari and an island.  We have no hesitation in recommending Anja and Go2Africa based on our experience. Thank you for all your help in making this such a wonderful experience!
