Johan van Tonder
Growing up in the Western Cape, Johan spent his youth outdoors absorbing the names and habits of birds, plants and animals. It is here where he gained his passion for wildlife birds and guiding. His client reports are excellent and reflect his dedication to their enjoyment, education and safety. Johan runs operations in South Africa and leads tours into Lesotho, Madagascar, Mozambique, and of course his own country. 

We have developed a solid reputation for high quality, intimate tours and safaris. Many of our clients return as friends to discover more of the diversity and beauty of Africa with us.

When things get busier, Bespoke Safaris and Events employs only the best professional freelance guides, who are experts in their fields, to conduct specialist tours and safaris.
