Meet Our Local Host
Your host(s) will be Blaine Smith or Ryan Louw, local South African tourist guides who left the corporate world to celebrate South African people, landscapes, and products. Blaine has lived in six of South Africa’s nine different provinces and ventures all over the country on various expeditions. Ryan chose to make the Western Cape his home after a stint up north, and you won’t find a bigger patriot for his country anywhere else. You'll be in the best of South African hands.*There is a possibility that you may be hosted by a different guide from Blaine's team on this experience and on occasion there will be more than one guide.
