OUR STORY

Before we get to the technical details and terminology of who we are, we want to tell you a short story. Our story. A story of how a deep passion for, and connection to this continent has turned what once was a nothing more than a pipe dream into My African Dream. Let’s take it back to the beginning. Cape Town, South Africa, 2018.

It was another beautiful Winter’s day in the Mother City as we sat down over a cup of coffee overlooking the ocean and the iconic outline of Table Mountain, the sound of the breaking waves crashing against the sand in the distance. What started as a casual catch up amongst friends over a couple of cappuccinos quickly turned into a flurry of conversation as we began to share stories of our time in the bush. Rudi’s recent rhino dehorning project was first up on the menu, as we sipped our coffee’s both enthralled and wide-eyed listening to yet again, the plight of a helpless species determined by human greed.

To lighten the mood, we reminisced about our recent travels, both internationally and locally, and finally came to the conclusion, as we have done so many times in the past, that as wonderful as traveling to different continents might be, there is something that makes us itch to come back to Africa, to get off the beaten path, to continue expanding our knowledge of nature and explore the unknown.

This conversation amongst three friends soon ended with a laugh, a hug and a handshake as we all left that same coffee shop two hours later as business partners. And so ‘My African Dream’ was born.
