About Us

Tuthie Afrika is a tour company dedicated to showing you the beauty of Africa through affordable family or private group safaris.

The name ‘Tuthie Afrika’ derives from the Kikuyu language, a tribe originating in the Central Highlands of Kenya. Translated into English, Tuthie Afrika means ‘Let’s go Africa’.

With a maximum group size of 6, we are able to tailor-make a private itinerary especially to suit your accommodation needs, destinations and the size of your party.

Tuthie Afrika was founded in 2013 when we saw the need to introduce an inexpensive way of small group travel while showcasing what this beautiful continent has to offer.

 A professional tour leader, driver, mechanic and cook for over 10 years, our Kenyan partner Arthur Chege is dedicated to providing the best service and experience that money can buy. He speaks 8 tribal African languages as well as English, has worked in over 22 countries on the continent and has driven over 680,000km in a professional capacity.

Our reservations office is headed by New Zealander Penny Shearer.  After graduating from the New Zealand School of Travel and Tourism, she moved to London, UK and became Assistant Manager of a large UK based travel company. She has also worked as a tour leader throughout Central America. An avid traveller herself, she knows what our customers are looking for and along with our African team, can deliver the holiday of a lifetime.
