GONANA is a Zulu word meaning “EMBRACE”.  We are passionate about South Africa and its neighbours. Through our destinations and activities we aim to give you memories that will last a lifetime. All our destinations are hand-picked for their quality, superb experience and commitment to Fair Trade. For us this is not work – it’s a passion. Welcome to Africa!

Something for everyone

At Gonana Travel we are passionate about designing unique journeys to South Africa, Ziimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and Mauritius

We create unforgettable experiences for families, solo travellers, groups and companies. With ten years in the industry and our ear close to the ground, we know all the best places from boutique hotels and restaurants to wine farms and cafes.  We speak English, Swedish, Zulu, Spanish, Afrikaans and German at our head office in Cape Town city and offer 24/7 service during your entire stay with us.

All our destinations, activities and restaurants are places that we  have personally seen, experienced and taken a liking to. We take you to those little special places, which are not the most expensive but the most memorable. Using our services does not cost you more, and your trip will be so much better! We tailor-make journeys and firmly believe in offering an intimate experience of culture and nature. We partner with top service providers and as far as possible choose those that are Fair Trade certified and run their business with sustainability close to their heart.
