A little bit about us

Diverse Africa was started in 2010 by Simon Stobbs. His desire to share the diversity of Africa with others is what prompted him to start Diverse Africa. In March 2013 Simon was joined at Diverse Africa by Dave Hyslop. At the end of 2014 Simon took on another full time role in the tourism industry and is no longer involved in the day to day running of Diverse Africa but his infectious passion for, and knowledge of the bush and travelling in Africa still permeates every itinerary planned and booked by Diverse Africa.

Dave graduated from the University of Cape Town with a B.Comm. (Maths) and went on to qualify as a Chartered Accountant. He worked in various roles in Finance and Banking and finally resigned from his position as Head of Regulatory Credit Risk Reporting for Standard Bank Group in 2011 to look for something more suited to his passions in life…..and he moved to the country. Dave has always loved spending time away from the towns and cities, anywhere, and has been an avid birder for as long as he can remember. Amongst his other interests are wine appreciation and collection, fly-fishing and the occasional game of golf. Dave’s involvement at Diverse Africa allows him to lean on his accumulated business acumen whilst getting involved in an industry far closer to his heart, even if it is too late to become a game ranger.
