Anthea Myburgh

I am a ‘born & bred South African’ and typical farm girl who loves everything to do with nature and the outdoors.   My love for travel was kindled from a child with family holidays ranging from camping around Namibia to mountain escapes in the Cedarberg Mountains (get your map out!).

I have been working in the African tourism industry since the early nineties (now I feel old…). My first job was leading some camping-overland trips through South Africa and Namibia as well as a river guide.  I then ‘grew up’ a little and started to focus on the safaris and bespoke holidays for families and couples.    Somewhere in 2004, I met Alisdair, and joined the Fleewinter family.

I love being on safari and exploring new places.  For me a safari is so much more than just seeing the animals – its about getting out there and really experiencing all that the bush has to offer.  Spending time in the bush restores my soul and I am so grateful to be able to share this with people.  It is a privilege to help someone planning their first (or second or third..) ‘African Safari’ and I love hearing the feedback on how much of an impact this experience has on a person!    A warning though… safaris into Africa are addictive….

I am also a keen horse-rider and am in my happiest place on a horse in the bush!  There is nothing more exhilarating than cantering across the plains flanked by zebra or antelope.

Photography is also a passion of mine and I definitely prefer to be behind the camera than in front of it… but I have shared some rare photos of me below, doing what I do best, as well as perosnal photos that I have taken on my travels.

I love Africa and all the ‘quirks’ that she comes with and think that everyone owes them self the opportunity to experience a safari at least once in their life….

A Word of Wisdom...

“Africa is a long haul destination, but don’t fall into the trap to try and do too much – you will come home needing another holiday to recover.  Focus on a few key areas and explore them properly.  And yes, safaris are ‘an investment’ – along with the airfare – but they also include pretty much everything from activities to food (and sometimes drinks).  Allow a minimum of 2 nights, ideally 3-4 to really make the most of this experience.”  Anthea Myburgh – Africa Safari Specialist
