Blog Posts & Recent Travels

I recently visited Namibia with a few of my colleagues, and it was so fantastic to be back home! Read all about our trip in this blog post: "Our Recent Travels in Namibia: a Desert Adventure" and see all our amazing photos in this Google+ album.

About Me

A small-town upbringing in northern Namibia was never going to be enough for me and after completing my education in South Africa, I started my career in travel and - 17 years later - still love it as much as I did when I started.

I am a mother of two and often whisk my family off for holidays in South Africa (it's hard to beat the Eastern Cape for family vacations) as well as Mozambique and Namibia. I think of myself (smile) as a dream-maker and my intuition for what travellers want - destination-wise as well as experiences - translates into what I hope are more-than-you-expected holidays.

Where have I travelled

All over Southern Africa, Mozambique and Kenya as well as Victoria Falls, Austria, Germany, Italy and London.

My favourite travel moment

Sipping a gin and tonic on the banks of the Zambezi! One of my other most memorable safari experiences was flying in a hot-air balloon over the Masai Mara.

What I love about Africa

You can't beat South Africa with its amazing mix of mountains, oceans, deserts and game reserves - it really is the perfect holiday destination.

People will always have a yearning for Africa, the huge spaces, the wildlife, its pristine environments - it affirms that life is not always about materialism. And there's nothing I like more than when my customers share the same sentiments.

Read what our Travellers have to say

I have traveled all over the world but the trip you put together for me (Capetown, the Garden Route tour and abi Sands Kruger Park) was by far the greatest trip of my life. I want to thank you so much for putting the trip together for me everything was stellar and I really appreciate all your hard work.   This was a very expensive trip for me but it was worth every penny and I will cherish it in my memories forever and maybe one day I can go back there. Again you put it together for me and you couldn’t have done a better job – I was thrilled with every aspect and everyone involved.  I was met on time and everyone was very professional.  I ate so well that I gained 10 pounds and am now actively dieting to get it off!  Thank you so much for making my dream come true.  I hope one day you can come to New York which is by the way the exact opposite of Africa, noisy, fast and overwhelming but great in its own way.
