Twana Adventure

About Twana

Arne started Twana Adventure and Twana Backpackers Lodge in 2003.  Although he first started traveling in 1994, for a renowned Dutch Adventure travel company as a driver/tour leader on various expeditions to Africa, South America and India.  These expeditions were Overland safaris, sometimes lasting 9 months.  Exept the South America expeditions, these tours all started in Amsterdam. 

With Africa thoroughly in his blood, Arne decided to start a company in South Africa, running Overland trucks on contract with his previous Dutch employer. He moved to Harare, Zimbabwe in 1999. After 4 years of successfully running tours, he decided to shift the business from Harare, Zimbabwe to Pretoria, South Africa, and at the same time start Twana Backpackers Lodge in Pretoria.

Around this time Arne met Chris, who was also a driver/tour leader on one of the trucks, and from then on the two of them continued growing the business together.
