Wim Kok

Director Matoke Tours

From the moment I stepped on the African continent, in 2003, I knew it! I knew that it was the beginning of a true“love story”…and a love story it has proven to be!

For me, Africa is remarkable wildlife and unique biomes that blend together in a melting pot of aromas, colors and senses. Africa is a place where dreams come true, where exploration is the only word that makes sense, and where nature is at its best. Exploring Africa, together with my 2010 born son, is making me feel complete. 

We, as travelers have the unique chance to travel  surrounded by this beautiful nature. We should therefore respect it, and conserve the environment for future generations.  Let’s protect Africa, and make sure our children, and our children’s children see it as it is being depicted today; a continent full of smiles, incredible people, breathtaking landscapes and unique wildlife!
