Chris Thwala

Travel Specialist

Chris was born in Gauteng, South Africa. He spent his youth growing up in Kwa-Zulu Natal on the beautiful east coast of South Africa, in the lands of King Shaka Zulu.

Over the years, Chris has studied locally and internationally, focusing on Theology, Public Speaking and Stage Drama. His studies and previous vocations allowed him the opportunity to visit many parts of the world and Chris just fell in love with travelling. He rates East Africa as a top destination.

Today, Chris is pursuing two of his greatest passions: travel and helping others. Alongside creating unforgettable trips and safaris to Africa for his guests, Chris has also set up a charity that helps those battling with mental illness.

Favourite destination:

Samburu National Reserve, Kenya

Most Treasured Travel Experience:

Driving along the Garden Route, Chris couldn’t believe his eyes; the splendour of nature was amazing! The colours of the mountains at dusk, the smell of the fresh evergreen trees and the sound of the sea will forever be imprinted on his memory.
