Meet the team

Mark Marais : Managing Director

Originally from Zimbabwe, Mark has a love for the outdoors, wildlife and foreign cultures which prompted him to start his own travel company. Whilst enjoying seeing the company grow Mark is keen to maintain the high level of friendliness and personal service that has made so many clients become 'friends'. His only regret is that his golf game doesn't do justice to the world class courses he has been lucky enough to play! Mark is the proud father of Louise and Emily, both girls are now well seasoned travellers and are getting into golf.
