Hoyo Hoyo! Welcome! Bemvindo! Wilkommen
Welcome to Ntwanano Safaris where we explore Africa’s heritage together in a memorable way.
The company is owned by Sertorio and Marlene with their daughter Khensani and we have been in operation since 2000. We are based in White River in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. White River and Nelspruit are at the mid-point of the Maputo Development Corridor with overland crossroads between several major regional cities such as Johannesburg, Pretoria, Maputo-Mozambique and Mbabane-Eswatini.
The meaning of “Ntwanano”
In the Xitsonga language, which is one of South Africa’s 11 official languages, the word “NTWANANO” means “Unity or Togetherness”. Our aim is to bring people from all walks of life together to experience Africa’s rich cultural heritage.
We tell stories that connect them with the beauty and power of Africa. For us, this is where our passion for people, cultures and nature unify to offer innovative tourism products that go beyond the ordinary to something more meaningful in the lives of domestic and international travelers across South Africa, Mozambique and Eswatini (Swaziland).

Our Social responsibility
We support Blind and Visually Impaired people from disadvantaged neighboring communities – offering complementary excursions, fund-raising and collecting essential resources for them. We also support a non-profit organization, the Dasha Foundation for the Disabled, taking learners and staff on specialized Tours of the Kruger National Park and other tourism attraction in and around the province. Reaching out to people with disabilities is our main focus and this has had a huge impact in shaping accessibility tours for tourists in general, a rare offering in the Travel and Tourism Industry.
