Christa Bothma

Since childhood, it was my dream to travel the world and experience other cultures, religions and the ways in which others live.

In my early 20s, I embarked on my first adventure that lasted 4 years, starting with a 2-year working holiday in the UK. This became the gateway to explore the UK and Europe. After that, I took on another adventure on board a cruise ship in the Caribbean.

I am extremely passionate about travel and helping other people to experience what I experienced, something which ultimately broadened my horizons! I am proudly South African and nothing gives me more joy than to showcase my beautiful country for my fellow countrymen, as well as people from all the corners of the world.

Why do I claim the title 'Best of Both Worlds'? I have experience in retail and wholesale so it’s safe to say I am an expert in getting you the best deal with extra surprises thrown in to the mix. I have 16 years’ and 6 continents' worth of experience in travel.
