We have been in the wonderful world of travel for 21 years this year and can proudly say that thanks mainly to a rich collection of past clients, staff, suppliers, friends and family. We are well established, respected and unblemished. We started small on solid foundations of passion for our country and dedication to client service. We grew slowly and carefully primarily through ‘word of mouth’ and faith in Southern Africa’s travel industry.
