INTERVIEW WITH THE FOUNDER

What are the origins of Saffa Tours?
As the owner, director and head guide of the company, I have spent many years exploring the southern tip of Africa. My love for this remarkable place and my perpetual sense of adventure has led me to start this passion project. My travels inspired me to give up my 9-to-5 job to pursue my career in this industry as Saffa Tours. With less than a year under our belt, Saffa Tours has made great strides. It is not easy giving up a comfortable career for the unknown, but it has all been worth it.

What is 'Saffa'?
Haha! This question is always asked. The word Saffa refers to a South African person. This nickname is prominent amongst the surfing and travel communities. I named the company Saffa Tours as I want people to explore and experience South Africa in an authentic way, with a more local perspective.

Why have you chosen Cape Town?
Even with 34 countries ticked off my bucket list, Cape Town is still incomparable. This focal point of South Africa, where two oceans meet, cultures collide and beauty transcends, calls to be discovered – at least once in your lifetime. Cape Town has so much to offer and I want to be able to share it with the world.

What's next for Saffa Tours?
More adventures, new collaborations and a more sustainable outlook on tours and experiences.
