Toby’s love of travel extended to South African soil for the first time in 2002. It was a thorough exploration, driving a 2,485 mile (4,000 km) round trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town along the coast and back up to the Kruger via the Kalahari.
His second trip to South Africa, a year later, was for his wedding. He married his wife from Stellenbosch. Since then they have lived in England where Toby’s keen interest in travel progressed into a career. Working in travel allowed Toby to further his passion for Africa and it has taken him back there every year since.
He says "There are many things I love about South Africa; its wildlife; its mountains, deserts, forests and coastline; I really love the food and the drink but I think the most compelling thing about the country is its people and their history." South Africans are some of the most upbeat, welcoming folk you'll encounter anywhere and I am yet to hear anyone say anything other than this once they have been.

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.
