Dear Sir, Madam,
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce Kaapstad.org/Akho Africa Tours & Safaris to you.
Travelling to Southern Africa has become increasingly interesting due to the all time low Rand/Dollar/Euro/Pound conversion!
We are a leading destination management company offering itineraries for business and leisure travelers to Southern Africa. The regions over which we have spread our wings are: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, Seychelles, Mauritius, Uganda, Malawi, Tanzania and Kenya.
We offer an array of products such as excursions, car rental, chartered flights, adrenaline boosting activities, various sports, self-drive holidays, affordable & exclusive safaris, photo shoot safaris, incentives, hiking, yacht sailing, golf, diving, honeymoon packages, senior and disabled traveling concerts & sports events (including tickets), scheduled departures for South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana but most of all excellent service where we continue to satisfy our clients with ongoing support and specials.
Nurturing relationships with our customers is a crucial part of growing a successful business. In this age of automation and innovation, caring for our customers has never been more important.
Our vision is simple. Once your client arrives at the travel destination, he/she is not a number but a guest in Southern Africa and thus Kaapstad.org/Akho Africa Tours & Safaris is fully responsible for the wellbeing and safety of guests. A guest returning home with a lifetime experience is a guest giving future reference to your company which results in a constant flow of business which is beneficial to both you and Kaapstad.org/Akho Africa Tours & Safaris.
Even though we communicate mostly in English, self-drive package and group guests will receive an extensive travel manual free of charge (Nederlands, Deutsch, Fran?ais, English). We do not leave our customers and clients in the cold by not providing the relevant travel information as a cost saving measure. Why?because we are your travel expert and it is the duty of Kaapstad.org/Akho Africa Tours & Safaris to inform guests well during their stay in our region.
We use vehicles with a special comprehensive passenger liability insurance. We do not travel with 14 seater vehicles with more than 8 passengers + guide on board as per South African law. 8+ passengers will be transported in the comfort of a luxury air-conditioned vehicle accompanied by an official tourist guide plus the services of an experienced driver.
We offer transparent competitive quotes and if having any questions, please do not hesitate to ask as questions do not cost!
Founder of this company, Jean-Pierre Ardinois originates from Gent, Belgium and discovered in 1994 South Africa for the first time. It is here, exactly 10 years after receiving the first letter from his penfriend, meeting Danville. Jean-Pierre did not only fall in love with the country but also with a woman who sadly left this world in 2000 after a long illness. In Belgium, he was involved with several exchange programs on cultural, economical and social level, working together with NGO’s and supported by the South African Ambassy in Brussels offering tourist information until he moved to South Africa in 2002.
During this period when not living in South Africa, Jean-Pierre turned about around every stone in South Africa and the neighbouring countries which as part ofthe SADC economical region. In 1996, he wrote a travel manual about his adventures.
After being active at large travel agents, Jean-Pierre had enough of their incompetence and staff treating people like numbers and not like GUESTS! But the mean reason why he started his own business is being a hobby turning into a job for life! With other words, guests visiting the region are guaranteed of excellent service and no efforts are too much to provide decent and accurate information during your travels with the Kaapstad.org/Akho Africa Tours & Safaris team!
Because…a vacation is a dream and WE MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE!
