About Ellen


Hello, wonderful travellers – I am Ellen Lagus, owner of Babuka Africa and your Southern African Travel Specialist.

I originally hail from Troisdorf, Germany and moved to Cape Town in 1993 after falling in love with South Africa on first meeting.

The natural beauty, magnificent landscapes and lifestyle quality all captured my heart and imagination and I have dedicated my passion to learning all I can about the country as a tour guide. And I bring to you this same enthusiasm and commitment.

Having worked as a tour guiding expert since 1997, I have accumulated the in-depth knowledge, network and resources to curate high quality itineraries. You are always assured of the best advice to help plan your trip to Southern Africa as well as to receive expert care on your arrival.

As you navigate my website, you will discover my popular and specialist tours which offer travellers many ways to live their best holiday.

And I look forward to making your Southern African trip, your best journey yet!

Warm regards,
