Meet the team

Buya Buya Travel & Tours is a small family run business that formed as the result of 10 wonderful years working in various lodges within the Greater Kruger and Kruger National Park respectively. 
This unique position gave us an unrivaled look into the very mindset of the traveler to South Africa, where we got to understand what people were seeking and just how much a trip to Africa was a once in a lifetime experience.

Nick and Candi decided to leave the lodge environment to start there own family. Raising kids while working at a lodge was just not possible.

We decided that there was a space in the market for a company offering a local, more personable experience with on-the-ground experience.

We personally offer every aspect of your travel requirements – from transfers, to day tours to accommodation – making us not only the most cost effective option, but also the most hassle-free.

Percy joined the company in 2018 and has been an invaluable asset to the company along with the other guides who work with us on a freelance basis.
