Enya's Travel Adventures in Southern Africa
Born and raised in Germany, I developed a deep fascination for Africa already as a child because of the popular African wildlife show of Bernhard Grzimek, which was broad-casted during the 70ties on German TV.
After emigrating from Germany to South Africa (Cape Town) in 1995 I spent the first 2 years exploring every corner of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe in my 32-year-old Land Rover. My travels brought me deep inside the endless deserts of Namibia, into the wilderness areas of the Okavango Delta and the Chobe National Park in Botswana and to the spectacular Victoria Falls. Adventure is in my blood, so I bungee jumped from the bridge over the Zambezi and tackled the white waters of this wild river more than once.
In between my travels to remote places I became a scuba diving instructor and opened a dive travel operation in Cape Town. My clientele, mostly Germans, demand thrilling underwater experiences and my dive tours take you all the way from Cape Town to Mozambique.
In early 1998 I launched the first German-language Internet portal for adventure travel in Southern Africa soon followed by its English counterpart and never lost my excitement for travelling Southern Africa, resulting in regular trips into the wilderness of Southern Africa.
My passion for "off the grid" travel has led to guided self-drive tours (tag-along tours) where I guide a group of adventure seeking, nature loving self-drive travellers to the most stunning and remote locations in Southern Africa. Those tours are undertaken in fully equipped 4x4 off road vehicles or on reliable offroad motorbikes .
On request of many of my travel companions I added recently a midi bus to my fleet, which was converted into a spacious touring bus for up to 10 people offering private groups the option to enjoy the "road trip" together in comfort.
My beloved 4x4 motorhome allowing me to discover Africa far away from mainstream travel has made space for a luxurious Toyota Land Cruiser Prado which is now the vehicle of choice for smaller groups / individuals who wish to discover the wonders of Africa in style. May it be on a guided day trip around Cape Town, the Cape of Good Hope and the Cape Winelands or during an exclusive off-the-grid adventure into the remote wilderness areas of Southern Africa.
Every single person travelling with me is my personal VIP and that is why there is always a limit of how many people I take on a trip. If it is a guided self drive tour I restrict the number of vehicles coming along to five, if we travel in our comfortable tour bus no more than 10 people will be in the group.
Wildlife, Nature and Culture
My tours focus on the natural beauty, the stunning wildlife and diverse cultures of Africa. We meet the locals, make lifelong memories, share stories of adventure and experience what Africa really is - the cradle of humanity, a sky which humbles even the most important and a place where time merges into infinity.
Choice of accommodation
The choice of accommodation depends on where we go and what your budget is. If we go "off-grid", there might not even be a toilet or shower available. On the other hand, there are four to five star lodges offering every bit of luxury you can imagine. The choice is yours !
