Tom Joubert, founder and managing director of Afrikania.

Tom Joubert

Tom, founder and now general manager of Afrikania, initially moved to Phalaborwa in 1995 to design and build a holiday house for a client from Johannesburg. Originally planned as a two year program, he soon »met« some Baboons, Elephants, Leopard and other »weird and wonderful« life of the surrounding African bush and also became involved in a number of community projects in Phalaborwa. As a result, he discovered the rich culture and heritage of the area and decided to stay in Phalaborwa - permanently, »-nowhere else in the world«.

After observing traditional patterns and buildings all over South Africa all his life, he was the one to recognize the uniqueness of the Phalaborwa pattern in 1995. He then founded Afrikania and is the managing director still today.
