About us

 


VAŇOURKOVÁ   JANA     Project manager, teacher, travel agent, photographer


My whole life I am in search of Mystery, Romance, Mystique, Unknown, Beauty, Love and Wisdom. 

I have traveled in 73 countries and lived in 3 and I am the creative soul and the dreamer who comes with idea's about the new adventures.  

TRAVELS

Since 1990 I have been an owner of the travel agency. My first company was named ACT and was for  incoming tourism from Holland to Czech Republic & Slovakia.  Later I expanded the scope of the agency to cater for photo travels and renamed it to Tsoatsoa - photo travels. I have 2 so called SEPR TA  (Travel agency) diploma's from the Netherlands - 1/  the TA manager ; 2/  Travel agent.     

PHOTOGRAPHY

My passion for photography started early - at the age of 15, when I was introduced to photography by my father -  developing the B&W films and images at home. I can still feel the chemicals in my dark room.

On this link you can look at my portfolio at photo net. Allow a few moments to load the images.

I love to share my passion for the world around us while teaching the vision and composition in photography.  I can communicate in English, Czech, Dutch, French and Slovak,  also partly in German,  Russian and Afrikaans

History


This is us on the first holiday together, 35 years ago, in Kashmir on the lake Dal on a houseboat. 

AFRICA

The first time we came to southern part of Africa (1986)  we were bitten by the >African bug< . He causes this strange kind of disease making you home sick for Africa where ever you go. 

We both love traveling, authentic places, animals and our souls reside in the sand of Kalahari, in the Tsoatsoa land.  The African bug is waiting for you to come around. Why not to join us on the next African expedition?
