About me

As a passionate traveler, I have dedicated my life to exploring the wonders of the world and sharing my knowledge with others. One of my favorite destinations is the Mzamba Petrified Forest at Wild Coast Sun, where I am privileged to work as a tour guide. The Petrified Forest is a truly unique and captivating sight, with ancient trees turned to stone over millions of years. As I lead visitors through the forest, I am filled with a sense of awe at the power of nature and the mysteries of time. Each tour is a journey through history, as I share the story of how these trees were preserved for generations to come. From the delicate fossilized leaves to the massive trunks frozen in time, every corner of the forest holds a secret waiting to be discovered. If you too have a love for travel and adventure, I invite you to book a tour with me at buyembocc@gmail.com. Let us explore the wonders of the Mzamba Petrified Forest together, and embark on a journey that will leave you in awe of the beauty and majesty of our world.

About me

Hi! My name is Neo. I live in South Africa (the most beautiful place in the entire world). I love reading and writing, I’m a martial arts enthusiast, and I will say yes to absolutely any adventures you may want company for! I’m really easy going and I like people who don’t take themselves too seriously. Let me know if you’re in the area and I’d be thrilled to show you around! Beware, my toxic trait is that I WILL try and get you to a jiu-jitsu class afterwards, but if you can stomach that then we should get along fine 😊

About Me

My name is Anri. I am currently working as a primary school science teacher in South Africa and am in the process of finishing my Master's degree. I would love to start travelling and don't want not having friends / someone to travel with to hold me back. I love nature, architecture, exploring towns, adventuring and food (However, I don't like drinking / partying). I am what they call a social introvert - quiet at first but once I feel comfortable I won't stop talking 😁

Family travel experience

4 nights in Cape Town and 4 nights in Sabi Sands at Umkumbe Lodge We had a wonderful time overall! I would recommend flying directly to the skukuza airport near Kruger National Park and having your lodge pick you up. We opted to rent a car in Johannesburg and self-drive - this was a mistake. We did not feel safe and ended up getting lost. We pulled into a gas station and actually spoke with a private investigator who told us to turn around immediately and not stop for anything until we got to our destination. This was incredibly unnerving. There were a few other parts of the trip where we felt unsafe (as there were protests going on at the time we were there). We were warned by locals many times to never stop the car, always keep the windows and doors locked, only take premium Ubers, get back to the hotel before dark, etc. All things considered, I would not recommend a trip to Africa as a solo female traveler. But, if you have a travel buddy, I would definitely recommend it provided you are vigilant.

Family travel experience

I traveled to South Africa with my sister. We visited Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban and had a great time there, we did not feel unsafe at all. We took part in a Hop On, Hop Off bus tour and we had a private guide in Cape Town, who was really charming.

I had a personal tour guide that brought me to Kruger National Park to experience the safari and Cape Town for sightseeing. It was a fulfilling introduction of the country. I am definitely going back for more!

Family travel experience

A few years ago, I went with my family to South Africa on the Rainbow Route! It was incredible and our guides took great care of us. I was with my family, but there were also women traveling alone. The bus was small, so we got to know everyone very well!
