Tess van der Walt

Travel Designer

I have spent my life between Africa and the UK and have a real passion for the continent, from North to South. After spending the last 5 years in Cape Town (before moving back to London last September), and enjoying hiking Lions Head, paragliding off Signal Hill, dining in the best restaurants and sampling the most delectable wines, I enjoy being able to share my tips and recommendations with you.

Whether it’s a honeymoon, a bucket list trip, or a fun family adventure, your travels are important to me and the more you are able to communicate, the better your trip will be for it, especially if you love food, wine, art and wildlife.

There are not many jobs where you can say that you made an impact positively, not just with a truly memorable trip; but also by directly affecting change by booking with responsible guides and safari lodges, by partnering with companies who actively support conservation of the environment and wildlife. It’s great to know that even on a small scale, we can make a difference.
