Africa and The Middle East
“I would rather own a little and see the world than own the world and see little of it”- Alexander Sattler.
Hi, my name is Monique Bezuidenhout and I’m your local Travel Counsellor based in Brakpan, East Rand of Gauteng, where I reside with the love of my life my husband and my 2 amazing daughters, Tamaryn and Chloé who are my main reasons to getup everyday and give life 101%.
I have worked in the travel industry for the past 7 years as a travel agent for one of SA's biggest Corporate TMC's, and now I find myself on a new adventure as your local travel specialist as a franchise owner at Travel Counsellors. My focus for the past 7 years has been to deliver exceptional customer service, and in doing so I have built not only good relationships with my clients but also my colleagues and travel partners from all over the industry.
Being the one person, you can trust with every aspect of your travel arrangements from start to finish is my main goal, I want your travel experience to be as individual as what you are and I will deliver the best personal tailor-made service to suite you and your loved ones. I will go above and beyond to make your dream holiday a reality.
My passion for exploring the world started when I realised that I can make my own plans and they actually work, and realised that travel is not just for the rich and famous, it is also for me and for you, and the guys down the road as we say (LOL). I have been lucky enough to have travelled through our beautiful country and have experienced the local scene quite extensively. Our own country has such unique places and people to see and meet. I enjoy getting around and see what our rainbow nation has to offer. Cruising is another one of my favourites and one that the family also enjoys immensely. My dream destination is most definitely New Zealand it is the closet place to heaven on earth for me – the land of the Kiwi or as most people call it Aotearoa; land of the long white cloud. I am a total freak when it comes to Fantacy movies so of course I loved Lord of the Rings and Twilight and they where both made in NZ, how crazy is that?
Travel is not what I do - it is what I love! Whether it is a one-way flight from Durban or a romantic honeymoon, a business trip to Ndola or even a holiday on a budget. I want to make your travel experience one you will never forget and I will help you create lasting memories. After all you should be relaxing and I should be handling all the nitty-gritty for you.
The flexibility that I have running my own business is not being restricted or constrained to 9 - 5 hours, and that allows me to meet you in the comfort of your own home, office or even your favourite coffee shop. It gives me the freedom to be their for you 24/7 when you need me, even if you just want to say "Hi".
I look forward to turning those dream holidays into the most amazing holiday realities.
Remember travel makes the world go round, it is not always about the destination but the journey that gets us there…
I look forward to be your trusted adviser and friend.
Monique (Mona) Bezuidenhout
