SO, WHAT'S OUR BIG IDEA?

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO

Even after executing close to a 1000 projects since 1998 our goal has remained the same: to give your client the best possible travel experience. By creative thinking and knowing what's new, exciting and different - we can give your client a unique and personal experience of Southern Africa. Satisfied smiles are the reason why we're still here.

THEME IT YOUR WAY

While we love organising - others love wine and some people would spend their whole holiday on a golf course. Whatever the interest, we can incorporate it into your clients experience together with the other highlights we have to offer. Some of our latest additions have been yoga, hiking, adventure and cycling.

HIGHLIGHT AFRICA

When visiting a country for the first, or even second time, you want to get your feet wet before diving into the deep end. We arrange tailor-made roundtrips for your clients which will take them to the top sights of South Africa and neighbouring countries. All around satisfaction!
