Leticia Machado Dream to Africa Travel Expert

Hi, I'm Leticia

Your partner in African adventures 

In 2010, I left Brazil to pursue one of my biggest dreams – to move to the United States to learn how to communicate fluently in English with the intention of returning home to then build my career.

However, life took me on a different path. After three years of living in the USA, I met my South African husband Gary. We then embarked on a life-changing two-month-long road trip in South Africa which ultimately never ended as we decided to permanently relocate to Cape Town, South Africa in 2013.

Turning Dreams into Reality

Dream to Africa Travel came from my view of the world – I believe that we live to make our dreams come true. 

My passion is finding out what your travel dreams are and turning them into a memorable travel experience. Each itinerary I create has the same dedication to planning, attention to detail, and expert care as if it were my own holiday; always trying to exceed clients’ expectations, while building a relationship of trust and friendship along the way.

After working and acquiring experience in the travel industry, I realized that being a travel curator was my calling. Along the way, I’ve honed my skills at curating personalized African holidays for each client. My endless curiosity and love for travel continues to take me to many different and unique places in South Africa and other countries on the continent.

My favorite African experiences – Watching the magical African sunsets, the memorable experience of going on safari, the vastness of walking in the mountains, the smell of the sea spray while biking along the shore, discovering exceptional South African food and wine, the exhilarating feeling of swimming in the cold Atlantic Ocean or the warm tranquility of the Indian Ocean.

My favorite African destinations – Cape Town, Kruger National Park and Mozambique.

I hope that during your journey with us you achieve your dreams, experience the new, connect with what is meaningful and appreciate the special moments in life.
