mission is to develop intimate, educational safari trips for travelers seeking the adventure of a lifetime.
We provide self-drive safaris that are safe, as well as provide comfort for the group in our choice of lodging and vehicles. Our goal is for our travelers to feel safe and empowered by the independence of creating their own journey in Southern Africa.
Founder of Cross Africa & Co.
Matt Crosser is a seasoned traveler with an ingrained sense of adventure that has led him to explore over 37 countries. He lived and worked out of Cape Town for 5 years.
Matt realized there was a huge gap between fully independent safaris and ‘pre-packaged’ tours that speed crowds of people through different sites. Matt believes that one must travel without the limitations of a bucket list and instead absorb the surroundings at a slower pace in order to tap into Africa’s unique rhythm.
With over 18 years of experience on the African continent, he still maintains strong ties with colleagues and other local residents. Through these connections and prior knowledge, he successfully led four group safaris. In 2018, Matt decided to formalize the process for future travelers, thus creating his company Cross Africa & Co.
