How we got here

From teenage rivals to life-long friends.

A friendship that began as a fierce teenage rivalry: Callum and Sean attended opposing schools in Johannesburg and only met while playing water polo against each other (probably breaking each others’ noses at some point!). It wasn’t until much later that they met each other on neutral ground at Pafuri, both working as guides. They quickly understood that they had similar interests and passions and it did not take long for a life-long friendship to form. Ian joined the team in early 2022 and has known both Callum and Sean for many years.

The ‘glue’ that binds the three, comes from a foundation of thousands of hours exploring Africa in search of remote wilderness areas.

Using each other’s best traits and compensating for their worst, they have a firm focus on building a world-class travel company that is both personable and professional.
