Sometimes when you find a place that you can call the seat of your soul, you are so excited that you want to keep it a secret, a secret so that you can share this place with your soul only, so that you can be in this still place and commune with your soul when you need to most….
It’s that moment when you find yourself smiling without your mind telling you there is a reason to smile, but when the joy of your soul is reflected to your face and gently nudges the soft skin that creases easily to form those definitive lines that when witnessed by the eyes of others, they feel warmed, loved and welcomed….
BUT sometimes when you find the seat of your soul you become so excited that you want to shout out to the world, so that they too can come to this place of wonder, so that they too can feel the belonging, so that they too can have these experiences that brought you to this place your soul calls home.
And so Thongaland Travel was born. Finding what we can call the seat of our souls, the Thongaland region inspired us to form a company that will enable us to bring people to the area and share in experiences that will talk to their soul.
Thongaland Travel has taken the hippies from various generations, for their pure love of nature and a humble effort to live simple, purposeful and meaningful lives, refined their subtleties and put them to work to create itineraries that tread lightly on the earth and that will inspire and enlighten.
Embracing a barefoot way of life connecting with the energies of the earth and the rhythm of nature, it is no wonder that the flagship products of Thongaland travel depend on the pull of the moon, the high and low tide and the rising and the setting of the sun.
And whilst our flagship itineraries are in Thongaland we have included experiences that could not be left out as the journey for the soul would not be complete if it did not venture further to learn about the greatness of other places.
Taking the energy of light that reflects from the happiness of the soul, take the rhythm of nature… take wide open spaces, take time, take whole organic food … an open fireplace and you will create a delicacy that will fuel your body in a way leaving you feeling enriched and part of the beautifully woven tapestry of nature.
Thongaland Travel joining hands with likeminded people and companies, will ensure that you have these experiences on your visit to our most loved region and beyond..
When planning our Kosi Bay Adventure weeks in advance and from the other hemisphere, we had very high expectations but felt that we were going somewhat into the unknown. Now a week after the end of the tour we can honestly say that the tour exceeded all our expectations -becoming the best experience ever for the whole family (parents + 2 children, aged 10 and 12). Our guide, Rick, was simply amazing. Not only was the tour (packed with all kinds of wonderful wilderness adventures) extremely well organized in all it’s details, but the infinite knowledge that Rick generously shared with us during the whole trip gave us the key to understand everything we saw, from botany to zoology and geography, to story of South Africa and it’s various ethnical groups, to food to behaviour of the sea… The whole family was literally enchanted and we hope to be able to come back and visit Thongaland again with Rick and Elise.
The perfect example of a great company, especially sustainability! 🙂 the guides are knowledgeable, friendly and focused on safety. Drinks and food are super tasty (and no single use plastics, this made me so happy!)
We learned a lot about the beautiful ocean life and wetlands animals. It was the perfect trip. Thanks!
