Africa and The Middle East
Hello and a very warm welcome, my name is Candice van der Merwe and I am based in Cape Town - Big Bay. My husband is currently working in the UK and we are blessed to have a wonderful son named Tristan.
I am excited to be starting my own travel business as a Travel Counsellor franchisee. I look forward to the new business adventures ahead after being employed in the travel industry for the last 10 years.
I can remember while being at school, I always wanted to be in travel, thereafter I took the next step and proceeded with my studies in tourism and after 2 years I received my tourism diploma.
After graduation, still being at a young age, I began working as a junior consultant where I was awarded many awards for Top Consultant. After holding various positions, I was promoted to Supervisor at a well-respected travel company.
I absolutely love being involved in travel. I have the ultimate passion for planning your dream holiday and turning it into a reality.
Some destinations that I have travelled to are Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Seychelles, Zanzibar, Singapore, Thailand and the United Kingdom. Naming all of the above, my favorite destination visited is Zanzibar as the culture is unique and it offers the African bush combined with the blue waters.
My ultimate bucket list destination would have to be the Maldives. I have only heard wonderful feedback reports from many customers with amazing pictures to support the stories.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and will endeavor at all times to deliver the very best service that you deserve.
