Mauritius is a Paradise only 4 hours away with swaying palm trees, tropical blue waters and soft white sand, who wouldn’t want to experience such a magnificent island. I was privileged enough to travel to Mauritius where I visited few resorts from 3 Star basic resorts to 5 Star luxury across the North, South, West and East of the Island, each resort offering its own personal touch and taste. I experienced first-hand what each of these resorts offer their guests from Heritage Le Telfair, Heritage Awali and Heritage Villas as well as the Attitude properties of Coin De Mare,...

I had the opportunity to travel to Mauritius, my first impression Paradise. Palm trees, green grass lawn, white sandy beaches, blue seas and to top it all off great weather. With this amazing destination only being a short 4 hour flight from South Africa is a definite must see destination. I had the opportunity to visit 2 hotels and do a full site inspection at Beachcombers Shandrani Hotel and Club Med La Plantation d Albion both amazing hotel in their own right. The Shandrani Hotel is a mere 10 minute transfer from the airport and Albion...

I have travelled to a few destinations, and I must say Vic Falls was amazing! It is an adventure of a life time and a must see destination. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with fun activities then Vic Falls is the place to be. It is only a 2 hour flight from Johannesburg and it feels like you are on another planet, as soon as you land you are one with nature, with no fences nor gates just open spaces where the animals roam free in the plains of Africa. There is...

My wife and I (and kids in the last 13 years) are blessed to have travelled extensively and we hope to continue doing so. We came upon Tracy Wiid by accident and all I can say is "wow" I have never worked with someone who is as efficient and as understanding as Tracy. Whatever small question I had and trust me I had alot as even though we travel quite a bit, I am a very pedantic person and as such need to feel assured at all times. My family and I have decided that going forward ALL our travel will be done through Tracy! We normally book our "next cruise" on the ship and we have all decided that when the Bone's need to travel Tracy will be our "go to person". I have promised Tracy that the next cruise is coming her way. I hope you appreciate the fantastic person you have in Tracy, she is an absolute superstar! Thanks The Bones!

I am not the kind of person you want as a client ................ my travel plans constantly change and I miss planes. Tracy goes out of her way to accommodate my ever changing requests with professional efficiency. To me one of her true talents is to find the “just” right holiday experience to suite your personality and holiday style. You truly go out of way to make it happen.

Tracy is beyond great, she always goes out of her way to service and assist her clients. She always comes back with having done extensive research on costs and goes the extra mile. She does this with a smile on her face at all times and has great client service skills. She is an asset to Travel Counsellors :)

Tracy, A big thanks for your invaluable assistance... I will have no hesitation in referring you to others who may require your assistance/services and in continuing to use you as my nominated travel agent of choice, for both my business and pleasure/vacations. Your service has been outstanding, from communicating, availability (just about 24/7), bookings, and advice and just about everything and more.
