Mauritius - All
Africa and The Middle East
Hello from the beautiful Jacaranda City of Pretoria - Tshwane and a warm welcome to my web page. I am most privileged to be part of an awesome Travel Company that puts you, the customer first.
With 35 years of working experience in the Travel Industry, I am living my passion daily. I can’t wait to share my extensive knowledge in both Leisure and Corporate Travel with you, be it a domestic or international request.
I have had the opportunity to travel extensively to the Far East, Australia, Europe, Africa and the USA.
My favourite destinations would be Japan, a cruise between St Petersburg to Moscow experiencing the “White nights” and most recently Zanzibar. I loved the vibe in New York – “The city that never sleeps” and not forgetting London – “if you are tired of London, you tired of life”.
I was fortunate enough to have visited 3 Disney properties all on different continents namely Florida, Paris and Tokyo.
I have also lived for an extended period in both the UK and Belgium, Japan and France.
From a Corporate perspective, my past experiences with top CEO’s of blue-chip companies gives me the edge. Not only will I deliver the best service but will share my knowledge and experience of what is Best Practice. Some clients I had the honour to work with are Ford, Telkom, Eskom, Standard Bank, Cell C as well as a vast number of Government Departments to name just a few.
With leading-edge technology and a dynamic booking engine called Phenix', I will be able to assist you with competitive rates at numerous hotels worldwide. Plus I can find the best fare deals and tour packages available in the market.
Leading products like our Bridal Gift Registry is available to those getting married. Not sure about what gift to give or if you would like to incentivize your staff then how about Travel Gift Vouchers?
My priority is you the customer and I will be able to provide you with tailor-made packages to suit your travel needs from an array of top-class suppliers. Please allow me to quote your next holiday or business trip and you will experience the service that sets me apart.

I was one of the privileged Travel Counsellors that was invited by World Leisure Holidays and 1Time Airline as hosts, to visit the beautiful Island of Zanzibar. We arrived at the crack of dawn (05h30) at OR Tambo Airport to check in at the 1time Airline counter. The Crew was professional, pleasant and delivered a scrumptious breakfast which was prepaid on our air ticket to the value of R75 which was more than sufficient. Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and Pemba Islands, and several islets. It is located in...

Charmaine was extremely helpful in booking our recent holiday to Australia. Even whilst in Australia I could still email Charmaine to help us to book kiddie meals for my son - which she did within minutes. Thank you, Charmaine for going the extra mile.

Charmaine personal yet professional service is excellent. It gives one peace of mind knowing that you have a Travel Counsellor who can plan your holidays/travels while sourcing the best prices. I have recommmended her on numerous occassions to colleagues and friends who can attest to this as well.

I was most satisfied with Charmaine's service when she organised a month-long trip to New Zealand and Australia in July. She certainly has a yen for sourcing the most convenient, efficient flights, even out of relative backwaters like Dunedin! Direct flights were the order of the day and accommodation was all wonderful too.

Charmaine delivered an excellent service from the time I have requested a quote from her. She arranged a meet and greet for my daughter who flew to Sweden. The week before my daughter departed, I received an update every second day, to inform me that the flight was still on schedule and Charmaine even booked my daughter’s seat beforehand. Charmaine you are a great lady!
