Shawn, Operating Partner


Operating Partner

Shawn is the Founder of Detour Africa tours and Safaris, The Company was born out of sheer love for Africa and its people. He spent many years travelling through Southern and Eastern Africa building up a network of contacts and learning all the intriquicies of African Logistics.

With the birth of South Africa’s democracy in 1994, came more possibilities of being able to travel though South Africa and its neighbouring countries – Shawn’ dream was realized and he was able to start a company operating in most of the key African Countries.

Since then the continent has really opened up and Detour has grown from strength to strength. Shawn is best found helping our reservations staff plan Itineraries through this amazing and dynamic continent.
