Our sister company Siyasizana Shuttle Services pioneered us into travel and tourism in 2011.
Our achievements in travel and tourism would oblige us to unbundle tourism activities into tourAfrika and our bus activities into COACHROAD in order for us to completely understand and effectively articulate what the market requires and thus creating a truly remarkable customer experience.
After a life in the corporate world primarily in quality management, “collar-and-tie” routines were replaced by “shorts-and-rafters”, as the passion for travel and tourism would lead Dumisani to cut his teeth into African travel with the establishment of Siyasizana Shuttle Services in 2011, and he would go on to co-found tourAfrika in 2017 and COACHROAD (PTY) LTD in 2018.
Dumisani holds an Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering and Part 1 & 2 Quality Assurance, through the City and Guilds London Institute. He also holds a Level 1 – Welding Inspection (Distinction) from the Southern African Institute of Welding and a Graduate Diploma in Engineering from Engineering Council of United Kingdom (partly completed).

On retirement from the railways, Samuel partnered with Dumisani and was involved in driving the strategy to co-found COACHROAD (PTY) LTD and tourAfrika.
