Africa

Jambo.
We have a long conenction with Africa and in particular East Africa. Our founders African connection starts when he was a student in the 1970's. Playing in a rock band he soon discovered 'Osibisa', the first African band to make it into the western dominated music market. He still has those original vinyl records!

He finally arrived in Africa to work in 1980 and dicovered the pulsating sounds of "Matatu Music". The following picture illustrates a journey through Africa in 1981. He's the then fit European chap!! Through various employment, with UK based Adventure tour operators, the last 21 years with his own business, and child sponsorship this connection has continued.
