Hello, Sanibonani, Cia, Walaykum As-salaam, Zdravo. I’m Samantha West, owner and founder of West Curated Travel.
West Curated Travel (formerly South Africa Travel and Tours) was inspired by my passion for travel– from easily accessible places to the most unusual destinations on earth. Despite my fear of flying (yes, really!), my travel portfolio expands every year. I’ve lived in and traveled extensively through Europe, been on many safaris, sailed the Aegean, and stayed in luxurious Caribbean hotels. Nothing can contain my wanderlust. In 2013, I launched West Curated Travel so I could share my intense love of travel–and the amazing things I’ve discovered on my trips around the globe—with you.
You’re reading this because you love to travel, too. What is it that makes travel so exciting? For me, it’s about getting out of my comfort zone, meeting new people, and experiencing different cultures. Whether you see yourself sipping the finest wine in a South African vineyard, sleeping under the stars in the Sahara Desert, or waking up in a rustic villa in Tuscany, I use my expertise to hand-craft a trip that matches your personal travel style.
As a mother and wife, I cherish the opportunity to plan itineraries for people in all different stages of life. I’ve traveled as a solo female, as a couple with my husband, and as a family with my kids. Regardless of your situation, I assure you, I can get you to where you want to go.
