With more than two decades of travel and hospitality experience in Southern Africa, Kukummi Exclusive has all the insider knowledge to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime.

Evelien Klokman and Ingrid Burger-van Pinxteren are the faces behind the brand. Both have a wealth of experience and first-hand knowledge of the amazing luxury destinations on offer.

Having successfully run their company Kukummi Safaris for many years, they decided it is time to put their extensive experience to use. Both have a passion for exclusive and luxury high end travel where all their creativity can come alive. Hence Kukummi Exclusive Luxury Travel was born in 2023!

Evelien Klokman

Having worked, lived and travelled in South Africa for 23 years, I understand the dynamics and what it takes to put a smoothly run luxury holiday together. I have a huge soft spot for bush experiences and will definitely convince you to go on a safari. I moved back to The Netherlands in 2022, and can now offer that extra personal touch by meeting you in person for tour planning consultations.

We travel not to escape life – but for life not to escape us

Ingrid Burger-van Pinxteren

I have a special love for Namibia and Madagascar, as well as my honeymoon destination Mauritius. Hout Bay, Western Cape is my home town and the area knows some of the most exclusive wine estates, top restaurants and luxury lodges. I maintain close, personal relationships with all our travel partners ensuring you of the best quality and attention to detail. If you can dream it, we will organize it!

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer

With our enthusiasm, passion and personal tips, we will add that special ‘Kukummi’ to your luxury adventure.
