Who we are
Road Travel is an accredited and well established inbound South African tour operator. The parent company, Cape AgriTours, was established over ten years ago and started as a specialist in the agricultural and science market, supplying superior specialised services for technical visits and conference organizing. We soon found out that regardless of how serious the technical visit is, people always wanted to stay on and explore our incredible country. So it wasn’t long before we found ourselves booking safaris and organising holidays too. In 2004 we opened our Cape Town offices under the Destination Le Cap (DLC) banner. Since then the company has grown in leaps and bounds and we have now completed an extensive corporate overhaul and re-branding exercise as Road Travel, specialist African travel consultants.back to top
Mission & Vision
At Road Travel we are passionate about South African travel, our mission and vision is quite clear:
M = To share the magic that is Africa; to encourage clients to return again and again; to create authentic and memorable experiences; to promote Africa as a value for money destination.
V = To develop local and international market share; to create something different from bus-rush tours (tourist traps only on request!); to focus on socially and economically responsible tourism; to have fun; to discover South Africa in a way that is harmonious with her people and places.back to top
Adele & Robin
The proud owners of Road Travel.
Adele was born in Stellenbosch in the heart of the beautiful Cape Winelands, and after school went straight to work as an au pair in the Benelux. On her return to South Africa in the mid 1990’s, her first job back home was as an official for South Africa’s historic first democratic elections. Following this, she spent considerable time travelling throughout southern Africa, and during this time successfully completed her Diploma in Tourist Guiding and spent a year co-coordinating functions on top of Cape Town’s Table Mountain. She also worked for one of the best, small inbound luxury travel operators in the country, where she was involved in planning and managing top-end luxury inbound and incentive travel for Americans and Europeans to southern Africa. When this company was sold to a large corporate group, she felt that in a commercialised environment, she could no longer supply her clients with the same standard of service a small intimate company could provide. The natural step was for Adele to set up for herself. By combining her years of experience in the southern African tourism industry, dedication and practical knowledge of South Africa, and professional and enthusiastic customer care, Adele now flourishes in her position as Senior Consultant for Road Travel. ”I am passionate about my country, knowledgeable on most things South African, and love to travel. The unique diversity of our friendly rainbow nation makes my pursuit of the unusual natural.”
Robin has a more eclectic background than most. Born in Gauteng, he studied fine arts before travelling extensively abroad representing his country internationally as a Springbok athlete. Previous work experience includes a decade of foreign exchange, when he managed the exchange control corporate business for a major banking institution in the Western Cape, and was a credit analyst for a large financial institution. Travelling in his home country of South Africa has always been one of Robin’s main passions, and he also has a very keen interest in architecture and comparative religion. With his good organisational and business background and travel knowledge, Robin has made his presence known in the conference industry, both locally and internationally, since 2001.
Between these two passionate individuals your tailor made travels by road or otherwise, are sure to be very memorable.
