We specialise in tours of the Garden Route & Addo Elephant National Park, with scheduled group tours departing every Monday and Friday from Cape Town. We also provide private tours - perfect for school or university groups, family vacations, honeymoons or small group travel. Earthstompers is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Hendrik & Chrissy Human.
Where it all began…
Hendrik was studying at Stellenbosch College in 2001 and had an assignment to write a business plan for a new tourism company. Being a Mossel Bay boy at heart, he decided to write a business plan for an adventure tour company offering trips along the Garden Route.
After university, and a few years of guiding for other tour companies, Hendrik decided to put that business plan to work. That's when he founded Earthstompers Adventures in 2006. In those early days, it was just Hendrik and his trusty blue VW bus!
The second chapter in Earthstompers’ history began in 2012. Chrissy came from her home in Kansas City, United States as a tourist…fell in love…and decided to stay in South Africa. Chrissy quickly took over the business affairs of Earthstompers, including the financials, website, social media, and scheduling. Gone are the days of Hendrik’s hand-written calendars and boxes full of receipts!
These days, Hendrik & Chrissy operate Earthstompers together, along with the best office support team & group of guides you will find on the Garden Route.
