ABOUT US

Toerboer is a vibrant and environmentally conscious travel and tour specialist. We pride ourselves on our heritage and love for the continent.

 

We consist of four divisions:

Toerboer is registered with the South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA), AgriTourism South Africa as well as the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB)

Part of your tour fees goes directly to Greenpop and EcoChildren and we support Qubeka. We care about the environment as much as we care about the visitor experience and we are 85% paperless. We also provide our travellers each with a branded water bottle that can be used to fill from larger water containers in order to avoid the senseless consumption of smaller plastic water bottles. 

Toerboer was born out of a love for travelling and sharing. Allow us to share our love for travelling with you. Become a local - EXPLORE | EXPERIENCE | TRAVEL

DAWID DE WET

Dawid is an adventurous and curious traveller, who has led overland safaris for more than a decade to destinations such as South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Madagascar. He also spent two minutes in the Democratic Republic of the Congo but this is part of a longer story that he will share with you around the campfire.

 

Dawid has post-graduate degrees in Journalism and Wildlife Management (with a focus on community-based natural resource management) and has extensive knowledge of working with local communities. He also loves writing about his travels and taking photos on tour. He has a real passion for rivers, hence the Toerboer river cleaning and monitoring projects.

 

He is also an avid mountain biker and hiker and thrives on the extremes that South Africa has to offer. Dawid’s family roots in South Africa go as far back as 1679 when the first of his forefathers arrived in South Africa from the Netherlands. He hails from the pioneers that initiated The Great Trek. Today he continues that legacy.

KARLIEN DE WET

Karlien is a  woman with a uniquely thorough approach to everything she does and cares deeply about her work and how it fits into the bigger picture. She’s one helluva nice lady who can be trusted with any task, no matter how challenging, that, of course, depends on the quality of the coffee she had in the morning.

 

With more than 12 years’ experience in the travel industry combined with her creativity and passion for travel, she’s a perfect fit for our team. She believes in the concept of travelling whilst communicating with other people, without prejudgment and with understanding. ‘’There is nothing like being among people of different cultures, to take a step into a world not yet discovered by yourself and within yourself.’’  

 

Karlien loves food (and wine) and tries to incorporate a local culinary experience into all the tours she puts together. She has travelled to 19 countries up to date. Among her favourites are Madagascar, India and Argentina. Next on her bucket list is Slovenia.
