Whether you are an individual wanting to connect with the history, culture or wildlife of South Africa, or a group wanting to exchange music, and build friendships, this tour will go beyond your expectations! 

    Valanga Khoza is a professional musician, songwriter, author, workshop leader and storyteller. Valanga is now a citizen of Australia who still has very strong links to his homeland through family, language and music. Growing up under the apartheid regime and being forced into exile at the age of 16, he shares many personal stories as we journey the path he walked as a young boy. He gives participants a first hand insight into the South Africa of yesterday as they experience the vibrant, exciting South Africa of today. 

    Melbourne born, Andrea Khoza, is a professional musician, songwriter, workshop facilitator and teacher. Together, Valanga and Andrea have been performing South African music throughout Australia and the Pacific since 1996. Andrea teams up with Valanga to give tour participants a personalised tour catering to the needs of each individual group.  

    "Our 30 members had an experience that went way beyond the usual tourist route, being welcomed into townships, villages, homes and choirs. We saw below the surface, ate traditional food, sang with the true glorious voices of South Africa, and deeply touched the culture that produces the songs we love! Unforgettable in every way!" Moya Simpson,  Worldly Goods, Tour Limpopo 2011
