INTRODUCTION TO SIMALANGA
The word Simalanga comes from his native term which simply means: Typical, Truly, Authentic, Real, For Sure, Seriously, Genuine etc.
We believe this name explains the genuineness of Africa and the fact that the country has so much riches that is still caped which is yet to be discovered. And Simalanga is equipped to take you out of your comfort zone to discover what most people from your country miss when they come to Africa. And also Simalanga helps to facilitate and makes sure their travelers use their five senses to fully inhale the African experience,again we believes that above all this what makes the difference is the “INFORMATION” about it all.
Our Guides are interpretative guides the skill which just few apply and its such a modern way of guiding especially these days when most people simply google to pullout some information,so the Interpretive guides pulls out some unique details on actual sighting which could not be found online or books yet.
