My name is Vanessa Mbenoun and I am a Tourism entrepreneur

I am originally from Cameroon, a vibrant country from West Africa, where I was born, raised and that I left when I turned 18.

I came to South Africa to study tourism. Okay… Truth is, I didn’t have a clear idea about what I wanted to do at first. When I left my country, SA was getting ready to host the 2010 FIFA World Cup, so this trip was mainly an opportunity for me to understand what all the fuss about South Africa was about.

I came, I saw and I understood. My decision to stay here to further my studies was only made final after my first game drive in the Timbavati game reserve. The whole experience opened my eyes to how South Africa was marketing itself to the global travel community. I wanted to learn, be part of it and if given the chance, apply it to my own country… And to the whole continent.

Today I am the proud founder of 2 award-winning tourism companies: Creative And Moving and Kamaroutes Travel designers. Each entity is operating in a different part of the tourism industry and it would be impossible for me to keep track if I was not surrounded by such an excellent team.

I invite you, through this platform, to follow my journey in the challenging world of entrepreneurship. I will share with you updates about my ventures, the daily steps we take to reach our goals and my views on our growing industry.
