Babuka Africa


Hello and welcome to Babuka Africa Tours, the beginning of your African journey.
Whether you are an individual planning a solo adventure, or a small group keen to design your dream safari, I can make it happen for you.
Let me curate the holiday of your imagination and take care of all the details of your well-tuned itinerary. Perhaps this is a guided day trip of wine country or a mix of tourist hotspots, eateries, markets and museums – the imagination is the only limitation.
If your choice is overland adventure with your sights set on a Big5 Safari, I can be your guide through the game reserves of Southern Africa.
I look forward to finding out more about the holiday that you desire and to cultivating a very special travel experience for you. It is about your relaxation and your adventure.

Warm regards – Your Southern African Travel specialist, Ellen Lagus.
