BAOBAB Travel is a privately owned company that was founded in 2002 by environmental scientists Louise de Waal and Paul Giess, to focus primarily on providing responsible and sustainable travel experiences in Africa. Louise and Paul’s early commitment to developing long-standing partnerships with local tour operators and establishments who share the same approach and passion towards sustainable tourism, has helped to grow our community of tourism partners throughout Africa.
After more than a decade, the same passion and dedication drives us today to bring positive change to the destinations we sell. Under the leadership of Liesel Mayne, BAOBAB Travel continues to explore and develop meaningful holidays that inspire our clients to slow down, really think about the way they travel and to embrace new experiences.
Our team visits and approves all accommodation, activities and operators in the destinations we promote. This enables us to give you not only expert advice but also a personal view on the suitability of an itinerary, activities and properties for your particular circumstances, whether this is a honeymoon or a family holiday.
