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.

Hi, Madelein. We are now home from our big trip and still recovering from jet lag, going back to work/reality today. Just wanted to thank you for all your work on making this the trip of a lifetime. It all went very smoothly, starting with the VIP greeting getting off the plane in Nairobi. We really had a wonderful time, and thanks to you, felt we received VIP treatment everywhere. I don't know if you had any input on the guides we had, but Protus at Kichwa Tembo has got to be the best guide anywhere. All the facilities and the service associated with them were wonderful - especially the stay at Varty Camp in Londolozi. Thanks for everything!
