Born and raised in Cape Town, Luke is passionate about travelling – in South Africa and beyond. He studied graphic design originally and during this time was exposed to the travel industry as a river guide. With many years experience in the front line of the tourism industry to call on, Luke knows all about service and what makes the difference to travellers experience being average or incredible. He now spends his time planning journeys, adventures and holidays for inbound travellers to Africa.
Luke will assist you with putting together a fantastic itinerary for your visit. His local knowledge and vast experience of Southern African travel puts him in the perfect position to be able to advise you where to go and when.
In his spare time, Luke enjoys hanging out with his family, exploring the inner city of Cape Town, browsing junk stores and Milnerton Market. He also has a bit of a running addiction, loves good coffee and has a weakness for fresh croissants. When he is not in the office you will probably find him running around a mountain or surfing somewhere along the Cape Peninsula.
German born Michaela´s lifelong passion for Africa was ignited instantly when she first came to South Africa in 1988. From then on she kept returning. Some rather daring hitch-hiking trips around the country inspired the idea of settling in SA, which she subsequently did in 1993. Starting out as a tour guide, Michaela worked at Felix Unite Tours as a tour consultant for a number of years, and then at M&M Solutions, dealing with groups and incentives.
In February 2008, Michaela joined the team at Africa Bespoke where she has been making memorable journeys happen for her clients for the last five years. With over 13 years of experience in the industry, Michaela is well travelled and able to put together an incredible and diverse array of journeys for her clients. Michaela’s enthusiasm is infectious, her attention to detail superb, and her passion for people and travel is phenomenal. These qualities are really felt by her clients and combine in truly epic journeys.
Michaela lives in the city of Cape Town, loving the vibe of the City Bowl and all that is has to offer. Trained as a classical musician, she plays the cello regularly and also loves cycling through the streets of the city and taking long walks along Sea Point promenade.
