Hello, Sanibonani, Cia, Walaykum As-salaam, Zdravo, I’m Samantha West.
West Curated Travel formerly South Africa Travel and Tours was borne 9 years ago out of my intense love for travel to all places exotic and unusual. What many of you don’t know is that I have a fear of flying that started 20 years ago. Crazy right! I opted to venture into the travel industry sometimes embarking on close to 15 flights a year for many reasons.
Firstly, my love of travel and seeing the world outside of my bubble, meeting new people, experiencing a different culture, and enjoying one of a kind experiences throughout the world is greater than my fear!
I knew that I had to use my expertise in putting together not just an itinerary but an amazing travel itinerary that is carefully thought out so that you don’t have to worry about the finer details. I take care of selecting the perfect hotel whether it be in the heart of the vineyard in South Africa, or a rustic villa in Tuscany or a Berber tent in the middle of the Sahara desert.
Lastly, I chose not to give into my fear so that my kids have the opportunity to see the world and have a broader world perspective.
