The Sofala

Covering unexplored ground is continually exciting, but taking time to revisit long-forgotten places is so significant and always rewarding. 

Seeing old sites and reminiscing over times gone by is wonderful shared with others. The Sofala is more than comfortable for one or two travellers but can accommodate up to six.
