Shanil Balgobind, the Founder of Kimburi Tours, took to nature, camping, and hiking at a young age when he began exploring the natural beauty and cultural heritage of Southern Africa with his family. But it wasn't until he was completing his Master's in Environmental Law that his calling to a closer walk with nature began to take shape. While volunteering at a local nature reserve between studies, Shanil observed the challenges of the tourism industry. Kimburi Tours was then born to be a direct part of the solution to sustainable tourism.
The Founder is an active and key part of the business and continues to find adventure, peace, and purpose in sharing this amazing country with guests. He has built a valued "clan" who each have an inspiring story about their journey into tour guiding, and who all share Kimburi's values, purpose, and adventurous spirit.
Together the clan upholds the company's integrity and excellent customer experience reputation at every touch point with guests, the community, and nature. You can meet the team on the clan page, and you can hear what Kimburi client's experience on our reviews here: *link*
The focus is sustainable tourism as well as excellent quality and customer experience within the parameters of sustainability. This is upheld by keeping sustainability conscious throughout the company's activities and decisions as well by adhering to international industry norms and standards.
Kimburi Tours aspires to be at the forefront of the tourism industry where the company can make a difference in the lives of their guests, their team, and the local communities that work with the business. Kimburi Tours is conscious of conserving the environment and the industry for present and future generations.
