To our great regret, with much incomprehension and helplessness, we have to announce that Charles Witlox passed away on the 29th of December 2022.
Charles, known to many as Charlie, was the father of our company Charlie’s Travels. Many knew him as the adventurer who crossed Africa on his motorbike to discover new places for all his prospective clients. Looking for off-the-beaten-track adventure, making real connections with the locals, so that they, the clients, could once see the real Africa, Africa as he knew it. Not as the media presented it all day. Charles was an example to us, an icon.
Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to him. This touches us hard and deeply. A wound that will not heal quickly. But his legacy will live on, his purpose and his mission we as Charlie’s Travels continue. To realize his dream, his mission.
Charles, thank you.
What does this mean for you as a customer? We will continue with the organisation, this is what Charles would have wanted. So you can just book, continue and experience your trip through Charlie’s Travels as you have always been used to from us.
The team lives and works all over Africa and therefore has a lot of first-hand knowledge and experience.
Wherever Charlie and his team travel, they develop new routes and experiences together with local entrepreneurs.
We tailor each trip based on your wishes and our African knowledge. Everything is possible and nothing is too crazy! Give us a try?
Charlie’s Travels works together with local partners and contributes to CO2 projects to offset environmental pollution.
