Our Story

Marula Escapes (M.E.) is a Luxury Travel brand offering an exclusive, hand-picked selection of exceptional properties and bespoke services throughout Africa.

Deriving its name from the ancient tree, Marula Escapes was founded to reveal some of Africa’s most exclusive travel experiences.

Our passion for Africa, its rich and diverse culture and incomparable spirit of adventure, together with an accumulation of experience and a great appetite for travel has given rise to Africa’s first luxury travel experience platform.

Our Mission

Born from a profound love for the Mother Africa, the Cradle of Humanity and Modern Civilization, our vision is to showcase the incredible diversity and splendour of the continent , whilst providing greater accessibility to the numerous, enriching adventures and encounters that await.


Passion in an energy that fuels all that we do and dares  us to be different, to go above and beyond. It is an all-consuming fire that defines one’s character and actions and breeds excellence. It attracts, is contagious and the essence of True Hospitality. It is a dominating characteristic and one that is sought in each of our members, partners, affiliates and employees.
