GOODBYE LARA

LARA DENDY YOUNG
After 3 years of managing our trade partnerships in South Africa, we sadly say goodbye to Lara Dendy Young. Lara is heading off on a global adventure which starts with playing professional water polo in Australia. We will miss her dearly, wish her all the very best and have no doubt that she will be called back to the African travel industry in the future.
We have a new team member joining from January who will take over managing our trade partnerships in Africa and Australia and look forward to making this introduction.

HOLA LATIN AMERICA

We are thrilled to announce that Simon and Lara join us from 2019 and will be based in Buenos Aires.

LARA MOVSOVICH
Born and raised in Argentina, Lara graduated from the Universidad Nacional de Tucuman (UNT) with a degree in Economics. Lara has a deep-rooted understanding of the Latin American region, its culture and most importantly the people. She has a strong analytical and mathematical skill set and has extensive client management experience.

SIMON HUXTER
Simon was raised in Franschhoek, South Africa and after school lived in Argentina for 7 years. He is fluent in Spanish, has conversational Portuguese, and graduated from the Universidad Nacional de Tucuman (UNT) with a degree in Accounting. He has been involved in hospitality all of his life, having grown up as part of Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek and also handling their Sales and Representation in South America while living there.

UPDATED CLASSIC PORTFOLIO CRIB SHEET
New and improved. We are now fully embracing digital information and have created an online version of our much loved CLASSIC CRIB SHEET. This is by far the best snapshot of all you need to know across our hotels, lodges, jungle discoveries and islands escapes. Please help us by saving our precious forests; do not print the Crib Sheet, as this version is integrated into our regular website updates and is best viewed on a regular basis online.

Our office will be closed from 21st December to 7th January for a much deserved Festive break. But until then we are here and all hands on deck to assist you.
Happy selling!

Sustainable Africa

Zimbabwe

WHAT WE LOVE:  Zimbabwe must be one of the most beautiful and scenic countries in Africa with wonderful weather.  It certainly does have political challenges but we feel extremely optimistic about the future of this destination.  Landlocked between the mighty Limpopo and Zambezi rivers, Zimbabwe is a country rich in natural and cultural heritage. From the Great Zimbabwe ruins in the south, to the magnificent Victoria Falls, known locally as ‘the smoke that thunders’ on its northern border, Zimbabwe offers beautiful scenery, wildlife and friendly people.
