Journeez is a small Tour Operator company based in Johannesburg, which specialises in providing its customers with a one-stop shop with regards to all of their travel needs.

Our main focus is on putting together trips for visitors to Southern Africa based on their own personal needs, interests and budget, and normally build the trip through regular liaison with the customer.

The team are available around the clock so that should you require any last minute arrangements, need to change arrangements, or just need some advice or info, we are there to help.


On top of being an experienced East African travel company, Bunson Travel is also part of the family.  Bruce (Cathy's cousin) and his wife Julie Dabaly Scott were nothing short of miracle workers when it came to looking after us in Nairobi.
Not only did Bunson's assist us in booking flights to our Dubai luxury stop, but Julie, Bunson's Director of Sales and Marketing, also assisted us with arranging our many doctor's appointments in Nairobi, applying for our elusive Sudanese visas and ensuring we were well looked after in a beautiful home in Runda, Nairobi.

Throughout our expedition, we have received a great deal of interest in our vehicle.

We owe the credit for the extensive customization of our Land Cruiser to Stuart Baillie of Baillie's Offroad and Safari.  Baillie's Offroad and Safari is located in Kyalami and is one of South Africa's leading outlets for customized vehicles for Game Viewing, Hunting, Wildlife Filming and across-Africa Expeditions.

If you, or anyone, is interesting in kitting out a 4x4 for overland and camping activities, we highly recommend Stuart and Cathy Baillie from Baillies Offroad and Safari.


Safari Centre is a reliable South African retailer specialising in the supply and installation of high quality 4x4 accessories.  With a Safari Centre outlet right around the corner from Mike and Cathy's place in Johannesburg, it became a regular stop on the way home from anywhere during the planning stages of the trip.

Bennie and Leon from Safari Centre in Bryanston - Johannesburg were a huge help with our planning and accessory shopping.  They also were helpful in introducing us to Frenchie, our 4x4 driving expert and instructor.
