The Beginnings

In 1994 a seismic shift happened in South Africa - the old apartheid government lost the elections to the ANC (African National Congress) and Nelson Mandela became president of the Republic of South Africa. Motivated by the new beginnings at the southern tip of Africa, Enya immigrated in 1995 from Germany to Cape Town and started a scuba diving business. Besides the dive school, her main focus was to take German divers to the most exhilarating dive sites along South Africa's coastline. By planning those dive tours it became painfully obvious that there was no or very little information available - not in print and definitely not on the (at that time infant) internet. From there it was logically to change the "information deficit" about travelling South Africa and soon after Africa Adventure was born. The rest they say, is history.
