Welcome!

Hi, I’m David Marshall, founder of the Umoja Journey. Since 2011, I’ve led more than 30 custom trips across Africa, and the Umoja Journey is a showcase of my favourite stops.

Adventure

The experience of a lifetime!

I’ll bring you on a safari deep into the plains of Masai Mara, high above Victoria Falls in a helicopter, through the rugged wilderness on Rovos Rail, and down to Table Mountain on the majestic southern cape.

Each journey is unique, and every day holds a new surprise!

Purpose

A journey of self-discovery and legacy

My years leading a non-profit development organization have taught me that any adventure we seek for ourselves must also include a look at the injustice of poverty that grips the lives of many Africans. On the Umoja Journey, we stay in some luxurious places – I want you to feel safe and comfortable. But I design every trip so you can also see the reality of life in Africa and discover a way you can be part of making the world a better place.
