Coming from a police background, the urge to travel just couldn't be suppressed any longer, and after 16 years as a member of the South African Police Service, with the rank of Captain, Hercules changed careers to the tourism sector, a life-changing decision. His first business focused on the transport side, supplying vehicles to various inbound South African inbound tour operators. He completed his basic tour guide training in 2007, gaining valuable experience in the Western Cape Province. His first long distance tour leading assignments was for Koning Aap, a Dutch/Belgian tour operator, undertaking tours through the whole region of Southern Africa, where he reached the position of 3rd best international tour leader. Since then Hercules qualified as a national guide and worked for various South African operators and European operators such as, amongst others Kras, NRV, Sawadee, SRC, DE Jong Intra, Jet Air, RAN Tours, Reizen Patteeuw, De Blauwe Vogel and FOX. One of the most recent operators he worked for is BUNNIK Tours from Australia. Hercules will act as tour leader, guide, entertainer, braaimaster, medic, safety officer. And driver. Hercules speaks English, Afrikaans & Dutch.
A very comfortable vehicle for the smaller travel group. Enough legroom, fully equipped.
A spacious, fully equipped 4x4, good for doing 5000 kilometer tours in the Namibian conditions. Air-conditioning, fridge and individual charging points present. Perfect to travel through Africa!
For bigger groups we have this perfect 14 seater truck. Fully equipped with everything to travel through Africa in style.
We don't own any vehicles, but the comfort of our adventurers are important to us, therefore we have searched far and wide for the best vehicles. We travel great distances, around 5000km on this Namibian tour. We want our travelers fresh and rested when we arrive, ready for the next adventure! These are our preferred vehicles, but because of circumstances outside of our control, cannot be guaranteed. We will however always endeavor on our tours to source the best vehicles possible.
We are based in the picturesque town of Paarl, in the Cape Winelands, South Africa. We have a small office here from where tours are planned and dreams lived.
