Lucky and Lost was started in late 2016 by two South African travellers who are passionate about travelling and people but don’t like stiff traditional tours. We realised that our most memorable travel experiences were with locals who showed us the best places to go, how to experience them and the friends we made along the way! We want to provide the same experience for other travellers in our home town.

  •   Found Lucky & Lost here in TripAdvisor, and so glad I did! I was looking for a tour unlike the normal tours where it’s just the normal spots, with a large group that’s averaging 50+ years old, and I found it with Lucky & Lost!...More
