Toby, Africa Safari Specialist

My love of travel extended to African soil for the first time in 2002, where I met and married my wife, who’s from Stellenbosch.

I had previously ventured outside of Africa on my travels but, quite simply, nothing compares to the beauty of this continent. I love the huge African sky and the sheer sense of vitality I get from the wildlife, the people and the landscapes.

I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to explore Uganda and Rwanda. In my opinion, these countries are on another level and I have never before experienced such beautiful landscapes of volcanoes, lush deep green rainforest and deep and mystical crater lakes. The people and local cultures in these countries are also a privilege to experience. Of course, the highlight was visiting mountain gorillas in the wild.

I'll never forget when…

Sitting in a safari vehicle with Fred the ranger (and a bottle of cold beer) I was in the heart of Sabi Sands watching three male lions feast on a fresh zebra kill whilst a clan of Hyenas gather around us.

We sat there for an hour watching the hyenas strategise over how they would steal the food, they made frequent unsuccessful bids.
