Founder | Destination Specialist
Southern Sky Adventures is the brainchild of our founder, born-explorer and aptly titled “African Travel Specialist” Richard Pace. 19 years ago Richard walked away from the corporate world in Atlanta Georgia and decided to pursue his dream of exploring Africa. It took very little time to realize that the American people were deserving of an introduction to easily the most diverse, culturally rich and naturally spectacular travel destination in the world. He aspired to making African sunsets and wildlife encounters a reality for the discerning American traveler and after assisting a few friends with their travel plans, Southern Sky Adventures was born. Two decades later Richard’s enthusiasm for travel, his keen interest in local history and his love of meeting people remains the driving force behind our business and the very cement of our incredible team. With his finger still on the pulse, be assured of a truly once-in-a-lifetime, truly authentic and rich African experience.
