G Adventures recently opened its new Cape Base in the heart of downtown Cape Town. The newly formed G Africa operations company with representation in Cape Town, Kenya, and Zambia, aims to deliver the best traveler experiences in Southern and East Africa.
Focusing on inbound travel to South Africa, and outbound travel across Africa, the new G Africa operation will work closely with G Adventures’ innovation department to develop new products and evolve its existing products in Africa.
“Our travelers have become more sophisticated and their needs have changed………

….. Says Nadja Lingl, senior operations manager Southern Africa, G Adventures: “Having our own qualified guides working for us makes a big difference. In addition to new trips, G Africa aims to invest in Southern and East Africa to give back to the countries in which it operates. “We are looking at new ideas for community projects and will be working together with Planeterra, G Adventures’ non-profit organisation, to set up new projects.”
We have a lot to develop and we’ve taken the first step by introducing a fleet of new vehicles called “Landos”, which is a play on the word overland vehicle.”
Each truck features full body seatbelts, reclining seats with side-seat movement for extra shoulder room, a 250-litre water tank to reduce the use of plastic bottles, inbuilt Wi-Fi, USB chargers at every seat, large front windows for better views of wildlife, and windows designed specifically for photography.
“Our travellers have become more sophisticated and their needs have changed. We no longer accept that the old vehicles suit modern-day travellers, and in our bid to lead with service have come up with a solution to bring overland travel into a new age,” says Jeff Russill, VP of product at G Adventures.
