the Wera family has been looking after guests from around the world. The founders, Jubilant and Rose, were not in the business for the quick buck but to create a sustainable future for themselves and their children. The personal touch that the family has added to every trip they organized resulted in returning customers and positive referrals. Their son Emmanuel learned the business from scratch and will now take over the wheel at Park East Africa with his parents slowly pulling out of the day to day running of the company. They will however always be there to provide help when needed and warmly welcome the guests as they always have. For more information about what this highly experienced team can do for you kindly send us an email.
