Who We Are
Robert (Bob) Walley
In 1992, African Outposts was born when Bob Walley was inspired to create a company that offered experiences in Africa that would deliver unforgettable memories to its clients.
After the 1995 Rugby World Cup, African Outposts concentrated on developing infrastructure in association with the tourism sectors of Zimbabwe, Zambia, the Republic of Namibia and Tanzania.
As South Africa began opening to increased tourism, Bob was well placed to become a pioneer in the burgeoning business of bringing visitors to Africa for environmental tourism and ecotourism.
His first big project was to assist the kaNgwane Parks Board in establishing an area vital for environmental conservation. By training and developing the local rural community, he believed that the people of the area could utilize their natural resources sustainably and uplift themselves while maintaining the natural wilderness. Bob was invited to an exhibition in Switzerland to showcase the project. This early success allowed African Outposts to develop ties with top tour operators in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.
With its mission statement of “Environmental Education through Tourism”, African Outposts hopes to continue being an innovator and market leader in ecotourism and environmental education by showcasing this wonderful destination to luxury travellers.
Anna, his wife, worked side by side from inception and now continues the legacy in creating special memories which live on, both in the minds of our clients from abroad and in the local communities we have helped develop by giving them the tools to successfully sustain themselves.
