Why work for Go2Africa?

We provide our Go2African staff with:

Flexible working
Our Flexible Work Model offers the best of both worlds. Cape Town-based employees work 1 day per week in the Go2Africa office, located at the beautiful V&A Waterfront, and work from home for the rest of the week. Of course, our door is always open to those who prefer to work in-office more frequently. We have employees based in remote locations (from Hoedspruit to Nairobi!) – these employees work remotely, and travel to our Cape Town office for training and special gatherings.

Travel opportunities
We encourage our employees to visit the destinations we sell. We offer many opportunities to travel in the form of curated Educationals, site inspections, or discounted holidays at agent rates! Ts & Cs apply!


Life happens, and we support our employees to deal with it. We provide permanent employees with company contributions to medical aid, retirement annuity and life and illness cover.

Reward and recognition
We recognize our employees based on targets, but also values. Our annual Recognition Awards are an example – colleagues vote for their peers, and there are incredible travel prizes up for grabs (plus, a good old party!)

Wellbeing and ample downtime
We prioritise the wellbeing of our employees. We provide wellness campaigns, mental health support and coaching, plus substantial leave benefits. We know it all lies in finding a balance between work and play.

Vibrant Culture
Our employees are #proudlyGo2African, and we use any excuse to celebrate our shared success. Whether it’s monthly Townhalls, interactive team buildings, our operational structure itself, or Valentine’s Day – it’s always better when we’re together!

Training and development
We offer comprehensive training programmes and opportunities for growth. From destination training in East Africa to designing Personal Development Plans, we support our employees to succeed.

World-class tech
We work on industry-pioneering systems, ensuring that the travel planning process is seamless. We give our employees access to world-class resources, which allows them to spend time on what really matters.
