She has been in the travel industry for more than 20 years and has a vast knowledge of Southern and East Africa. She has meticulous attention to detail, a no-nonsense attitude and exceptionally high standards. If you ask her what she loves more than her dogs, the answer would be easy – Africa! She has a self-proclaimed love affair with East Africa and her in-depth knowledge of this destination would be hard to match.

Shana van Zyl

East Africa Travel Expert

I have always had a passion for travelling and meeting fascinating people so studying Tourism after school was a no brainer for me! After completing my 3-year tertiary diploma in Tourism, I started working in the field and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have been working in the industry for a couple years now and have had the great opportunity of travelling to Tanzania. I love nature and found the trip extremely insightful as I travelled throughout the northern, western and southern circuits. It was a real dream come true and I feel confident working with my fantastic African Safari Excellence team.

Carla Agurto

East Africa Travel Expert

You could almost say travel and tourism form part of Carla´s DNA. She started travelling at a young age and has lived, worked and travelled all over the Americas, Asia, Europe and Africa. Carla hails from Chile but decided to make Cape Town her home 6 years ago. She´s been working in tourism ever since. When putting together a trip, she believes in paying lots of attention to detail and making sure that her clients get more than what they expect.

Najmah Jakoet

East Africa Travel Expert

After 10 years of working in the travel industry, my passion for travel, exploring new destinations and cultures has not diminished, but has grown. One of my most unforgettable experiences has been a balloon ride over the Serengeti. I strive to ensure my clients have a memorable holiday and feel like they would rather stay in Africa than return home.

Tamsyn Munnik

East Africa Travel Expert

Tamsyn is an adventurous spirit at heart and has a passion for exploring new places, learning about different cultures and people, and ticking off those “bucket list” experiences. She spent two years living abroad in China, but no matter where her travels take her, she will always come back home to Cape Town, South Africa. Tanzania holds a special place in her heart, and she will never forget her first safari experience over there. She hopes that her clients will also leave a piece of their heart in Africa when they return home, just as she did.
