About Us


Are You Ready To Escape The Ordinary?

Founded in 2012, NEXT STOP AFRICA is a boutique destination management company specialising in tailor-made itineraries for travel to Southern and Eastern Africa. Based in Cape Town and founded by intrepid travellers, Richard and Adele Smit, NEXT STOP AFRICA was shaped by their love of African adventures and their intention of sharing the wonder of this continent with the world.

The team’s focus is on showing guests the best Africa has to offer. We’re in constant pursuit of rare and inimitable experiences and we only work with reputable suppliers. Our specialities include luxury and traditional safaris as well as adventure and cultural tours – and we’re able to custom design a unique itinerary from start to finish, just for you.

Our African adventures traditionally cater to couples, families and small groups of friends, however larger groups are welcome and even encouraged in certain safari set-ups.

Whether you’re looking for inspiration or information, you’ll find it all here. Browse through our itineraries for a taste of what you can expect, visit our blog for first hand accounts of some of our destinations and when you’re ready to escape the ordinary, contact us. We can’t wait to hear from you.

UK - Marcus & Ruth

Marcus and I had the most amazing trip, the honeymoon of a lifetime. Botswana was even more beautiful than we’d hoped and wildlife was awesome, Vic Falls bungee more terrifying than anything, and the Zambezi rafting was nuts! We can’t wait for our next visit. Rich and Adele you rockstars! 

AUSTRALIA - Anderson's

We all loved our vacation so much…. It’s going to be a hard one to top!

AUSTRALIA - Delphine

Fantastic trip…… We feel as though we got great value for money and even before we had left Africa, we decided we want to come back!
