Mary Keet

Africa Safari Expert

*Featured in Condé Nast Traveler as a Top Travel Specialist

Growing up in Underberg, a village in the foothills of South Africa’s famous Drakensberg mountains, instilled a passion for the continent’s raw beauty in me from a young age. After moving from one World Heritage Site to another – uMkhuze Game Reserve in South Africa’s Greater St Lucia Wetland Park – a career helping others to explore and appreciate Africa came as a natural calling to me.

My passion for travel grew when I began my career at Seabourn Cruise Liners, getting to travel the world before returning to South Africa to work at hotels in both Durban and Johannesburg. My journey eventually led me to Go2Africa, where I can really practice my passion as an African Safari Expert!

Sundowner of Choice

Inverroche Amber Gin with lots of ice, tonic, a curl of grapefruit peel and a sprig of rosemary.

Expert Tip

Being on safari is a casual affair, so leave the jewellery at home and be sure to pack layers!

Favourite Client Story

I arranged a pre-wedding safari photoshoot for clients of mine – which included scouting picturesque sites, consulting guides with a passion for photography on times for the best lighting, ensuring that the wedding dress arrived on time, and constantly checking that the crew and couple were kept happy throughout.

Loves to Hear

There’s no better feedback than when my clients refer my services to friends and family. I really appreciate that they value my expertise and efforts enough to entrust their loved ones with me.
