Discover the Hidden Gems of Southern Africa
Founder & Tourist Guide
Thobela, known as Tobz, grew up in Chintsa in the Eastern Cape. He studied Tourism Management, is a certified nature guide and “South Africa Specialist”. In 2018, Tobz won a prestigious Lilizela tourism award and was nominated one of the best cultural guides in South Africa. With 10 years guiding experience, Tobz founded Traveloma Tours & Safaris – one of the most exciting journeys in his life.
Originally from Germany, Annika lives and works in Cape Town. At Traveloma, Annika co-designs journeys with Tobz that allow people to experience South Africa from a different perspective while using tourism as a tool to tackle inequality in the South African tourism sector. In her free time, Annika loves hiking and, with her passion for travelling, keeps exploring South Africa and neighbouring African countries.
What a fab tour Tobz and Annika put together! We had it all: wild coasts, spectacular beaches, wildlife, vineyards, city life in Cape Town. Got great insight into South African politics and history, talked to inspiring entrepreneurs, met amazing people, hiked, laughed, enjoyed sundowners at stunning places. Tobz and Annika simply know what they are doing! So much more than just a holiday, highly recommended!Merle Schierenberg: Chintsa to Cape Town, 2017
I can absolutely recommend this tour! A wonderful and very varied insight into South Africa and its beautiful people. Very nice and competent tour guides. I travelled with Tobz and Annika in 2017 and loved it. Don't think twice, just do it, too!Dr. Martin Reiss: Chintsa to Cape Town, 2017
Tobz is a great guide. He is so friendly, open-minded and inspiring. I wouldn't want to travel with any other person. I'm already making plans for my next trip with Traveloma with my friends.Vanessa May: Wild Coast Adventures, 2018
Our journey to South Africa was a once-in-a-lifetime trip with many unforgetable experiences. The trip was very professionally organised and implemented. We would always travel with Traveloma again and strongly recommend them to everyone else.Monika & Dieter Mettner: Chintsa to Cape Town, 2018
During our road trip, we experienced the whole variety of South Africa. Tobz gave us very interesting insights into people's daily life and social and political issues. We would not have seen and understood this without his local expertise - much better than traveling by yourself!Karsten Schmidt: Johannesburg to Cape Town, 2019
We had an awesome time in South Africa. We saw beautiful nature, wild animals, beaches, oceans, mountains. We learned about the history of South Africa and stayed in rural African villages and vibrant cities. I would travel exactly the same way again!Levin Gsänger: Johannesburg to Cape Town, 2019
