"In the middle ages people were tourists because of their religion, whereas now they are tourists because tourism is their religion."
Robert Runcie

Hello Friends, Fans and Fabulous Travel People!

Phew, It has been such an amazing month, we actually ran a week behind in getting this newsletter to you because we were so well entertained. We had the pleasure of enjoying the Prickly Pear Festival in Uitenhage (yes, the prickly pear has a festival!), the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival in Oudtshoorn, the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town and the My Coke Fest held in Cape Town and Johannesburg (where even Paris Hilton made her appearance) - this is just to mention a few of the fun events!

This country is the absolute best by far! We love it here, which is why we do what we do.

As registered, accredited South African Tour Operators we hold contracts with all the major suppliers in the Tourism Trade.   We meet regularly with our preferred partners and are constantly negotiating the best possible rates for our valued clients. With our Special Tour Operator Rates we can offer our clients a better package deal than what they could try and arrange directly.   When a client books online or direct, the rates quoted will be higher than the rates we could secure on their behalf. We are also a "one stop shop", making it easy and convenient for the client, saving them time and money. As a wholesaler, we also have a very deep knowledge of each destinations offered and thus also provide all the necessary information and local know how.

A few slightly off-beat and different events to diarize for this month include:
13 April 2008 - Ironman South Africa
Taking place in Nelson Mandela Bay.
24 April 2008 - Lambert's Bay Kreeffees
Kreef is Afrikaans for crayfish, and a Fees can be both festival and feast.
25 April 2008 - Prince Albert Town and Olive Festival
25 - 28 April 2008 - SA Cheese Festival
On the historic Bien Donne Farm nestled in the Paarl countryside.

Contact us to find out more: We will be hitting the road on a few more Educational Tours and Familiarization Trips shortly. This is by far the best way to offer the best service excellence to our agents and clients. You can't sell a destination you haven't been to yourself, and you cant sell a hotel or lodge that you haven't experienced yourself! Always looking out for you, our valued client ;-)
