Who is Move Tours and Safaris?

Hello, my name is Jonathan. I was born and raised in South Africa and I inherited my passion for African bush from my parents. My mother was born in Lusaka and raised in Barotseland (Western Zambia) on the banks of the Zambezi River. and my father is a horticulturist. I worked as a chef in South Africa for 10 years before realising my true passion was to work in the bush as a guide, sharing this passion with toursists. So one day I packed up my life in Cape Town and went to work for a well established safari company where my skills as a safari guide were honed. I met my wife while on the job and we live in switzerland. I now use my passion, skill, knowledge and experiences in Africa to assist people with that burning desire to visit Africa find the right tour.
