About Africa Discovery

Guest comments about Africa Discovery

Cindi LaRaia in AfricaAfrica Discovery was founded in 1996 by Cindi LaRaia, whose love for the continent of Africa began as a little girl watching Tarzan movies. Hokey I know, however the love grew into a deep desire to help conserve and educate those of us unaware of the atrocities of poaching and why it happens. To expose us to the incredible culture of the African people; their beliefs and the personal experience their cultural heritage can inspire in us. And to view and cherish the beloved African animals of this incredible continent, Africa.

Cindi started her travel in Africa first with viewing the Great White sharks in cages near Cape Town, as an avid diver and adventurer. Then spent 3 weeks driving in Southern Africa to see the countries, the game reserves and to discover the people of Africa. Since then she has led photographic safaris all over southern Africa and Madagascar.

Why book with Africa Discovery when there other choices in African travel companies to choose from? I can offer you my honest answer here. We have been selling Africa destinations since 1986 . I, Cindi LaRaia founded the company, and have been leading groups all over East Africa and Southern Africa since then. We use only the finest ground operators, that continue to win awards in conservation, local people education and job placements. Emphasizing the importance of combining the importance of wildlife conservation and community development.
