Our Travel Expert

I am passionate about South Africa and everything that it has to offer. I love creating personalised packages for my clients that suit their exact requirements; I do not feel that one-size-fits-all works when it comes to travel. I started my own travel company, Southey Travel (www.southeytravel.com), to offer clients a personalised service with expert advice. My favourite holiday is to go on safari!
