Monique Tolken - Welcome to my profile!

About Me

I have lived in Cape Town most of my life but I also lived in Orlando, Florida for a year where I took part in a cultural representative programme at Disney World. I like to read, travel and meet new people. When I was at Disney, I made friends from all over the world and I was able to learn about their different cultures and about their countries.

I have always been passionate about the tourism industry. I believe that we should all go and explore and see what the world has to offer.

Where have I travelled

Locally, I have travelled to the Cape West Coast, the Garden Route, Sun City and have explored our beautiful mother city, Cape Town, from top to bottom.

Internationally, I have been to the Bahamas, Miami, St Augustine, Orlando, Washington DC and New York City.

My favourite travel moment

My favourite travel moment was seeing the most breathtaking view ever: Niagara Falls in winter time.

What I love about Africa

The reason I love Africa is because it is such a diverse continent. It is rich in culture, the people are friendly, we have breath-taking landscapes and one of the few places where you can see hundreds of animals in their natural habitat.

Some African travel advice

When travelling to Africa, take your time to explore. Meet with locals and try out some of our amazing dishes.

Where I'd love to go next

My dream destination is the Seychelles and I would also like to visit Tanzania, Nambia and Morocco.

Read what our Travellers have to say

We had a fantastic time thank you and all your arrangements worked out really well, so thank you very much for your help. We were very impressed with the whole country, the people and the animals! I'm sure we will return some day and have certainly been telling friends about both the trip and the help from you and your team.
