EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS.

SINCE 1998

SO, WHAT'S OUR BIG IDEA?

It's simple really. After years of experience in tailor-made, group travel to Southern Africa, we have noticed that our clients are the happiest when we stay ourselves and deliver the unexpected.

So we just kept on doing that.

START SCROLLING
WE LOVE WHAT WE DO

Even after executing close to a 1000 projects since 1998 our goal has remained the same: to give your client the best possible travel experience. By creative thinking and knowing what's new, exciting and different - we can give your client a unique and personal experience of Southern Africa. Satisfied smiles are the reason why we're still here.

ENJOY THE RIDE

With MICE groups, every second counts. Especially in South Africa where there's so much to see. We have years of experience in catering for the specific needs of your client as well as always customizing unexpected experiences and happenings for the groups.
There's a surprise around every corner!

THEME IT YOUR WAY

While we love organising - others love wine and some people would spend their whole holiday on a golf course. Whatever the interest, we can incorporate it into your clients experience together with the othaer highlights we have to offer. Some of our latest additions have been yoga, hiking, adventure and cycling.

HIGHLIGHT AFRICA

When visiting a country for the first, or even second time, you want to get your feet wet before diving into the deep end. We arrange tailor-made roundtrips for your clients which will take them to the top sights of South Africa and neighbouring countries. All around satisfaction!

YOU DON'T GET WHAT YOU EXPECT, YOU GET WHAT YOU INSPECT.

Our clients can vouch for that!

READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
SOME CLIENTS & FRIENDS

NEVER MAKE ASSUMPTIONS.

Let’s face it, this is Africa. It gets hot and things don’t always go as planned. We’ve learnt the importance of having a close relationship with our suppliers, double-checking and knowing every detail before execution.
Less assumptions, more enjoy!

WORKING FOR CHANGE

South Africa is a country of great beauty, but also of great poverty in many communities. A Reaching Hand is one of the organisations that we support to help create better circumstances for those in need, because everyone deserves love, dignity and recognition.

A drop of rain is insignificant but together we can make a river!

LEARNING WITH A VIEW

Everyone that has worked in this industry knows that it can be tough to get in to. We see it as our duty to give new talents the chance to get a foot in the door, while digging your toes into the sand.
