Bonita Cronje

Africa Safari Expert

A citizen of the world, I was born in Johannesburg, raised across South Africa, lived in London and New Zealand, and explored Europe and Asia. Most of my life has been spent migrating from one place to the next, making the choice to study Travel and Tourism one of the easiest decisions I’ve made!

I eventually returned to South Africa, where I had the opportunity to work for different companies in the tourism sector before joining the amazing team at Go2Africa in 2006! Africa holds a special place in my heart and getting to share that with my clients makes going to work every day a dream!

Sundowner of Choice

A Six Dogs Gin and tonic.

Never Goes on Safari Without

My zebra-print buff, and my sarong – each have multiple functions that prove useful when on safari!

Most Memorable Sighting

Spending an hour with the gorillas in Uganda, watching a male silverback cuddle and carry a 2-week old baby (which the guides advised was not very common!)

Expert Tip

At Governors’ Il Moran Camp in Kenya’s Masai Mara, ask for Tent 3 as it has the best view and a hammock overlooking the river for some extra game viewing. When I was there, we saw a mother hippo and hew new-born baby on the banks with a giant crocodile lying in wait!

Clients Always Say

They wish they had taken our recommendation and stayed longer at certain lodges to take advantage of all the activities!
