Welcome to Travel for Life

Experience the beauty of Southern Africa with the help of our experts

At Travel For Life we like - Romantic safaris, small unique boutique hotels, barefoot luxury, warm and unpretentious service, great food and wine, and Robinson Crusoe style beach vacations.

We don’t like large generic hotels, poor service and uninterested safari guides.

Owner & Founder - Adam Malmnäs & Alexandra von Knorring

So, what makes us different?

We are fully aware that there are many booking engines and travel agents to be found online, but we do things slightly differently. We are not about processing huge amounts of bookings, but instead we create bespoke itineraries and custom holiday experiences for our
clients. Rather than sending ready-made itineraries, we take the time to talk to each client and get to know them, so that we can tailor-make the best possible trip for their interests and needs.

Local knowledge

We know what makes a great holiday and we use that knowledge to create your perfect package.


We are members of the South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA) to insure your trip.

Tailor Made

We create holidays based on your needs, length of stay and budget. Let us help you arrange your holiday.


We have working relationships with the best hotels to bring you reduced rates on complete holiday packages. It is never more expensive to book with Travel For Life then booking directly with a hotel or safari lodge.

Exceptional quality, great value for money and consistent delivery are the foundations of everything we do at Travel For Life. The success of our business requires us to build on these cornerstones. Happy customers motivate us.

Travel For Life is a South African based tour operator founded in 2007 by Alexandra von Knorring and Adam Malmnäs. 

When the company first started the focus was on creating the perfect South African trip for our clients. Travel for Life has grown and we now offer tailor-made trips not only to South Africa but also to surrounding Southern African countries and Mauritius.

Our core belief has remained the same, and “Booking a trip with Travel for Life is like having a friend of a friend in Africa”.

These are our unique experiences

"I will be sure to recommend anyone to your company for travel in South Africa. A seamless, amazing experience."

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for all your help in the organization of our recent trip to SA. All of your recommendations were excellent. We loved the apartment in the Waterfront, The Spier Hotel was fabulous, and the Motswiri lodge was just amazing. We are now looking to get married in Spier Hotel!!
