Marianne Strydom

Managing DIrector


What do you like about your job/travel industry: Travelling the world enriches your life so much and I absolutely love the fact that I am exposed to this wonderful world we live in each and every day of my life!  Being able to experience different cultures, nature, wildlife, history, the unfamiliar, tastes/food, adventure and so much more excites, challenges and inspires me. It also makes me feel extremely blessed to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world – our own South Africa!  Being able to lead a team and create a happy environment where we are truly educated and informed to make people’s travel dreams come true.

Qualification in B Comm

What started as a temporary position in assisting the finance department ended up in me finally finding a place where I was truly happy to be and where I could start to live out all my dreams and bring together my passion for travel and finances.  I have never looked back and I am so extremely greatful for the opportunity that was given to me way back in 1998!


Best place ever visited and why:  This is a difficult one for me as there are so many.  Each and every single trip that I have done have been amazing with it’s own highlights and reasons why it was special to me.  The one that probably stands out is India because of the history, the culture, sights and sound, the beauty, the way people are happy even though they live in such poor conditions and circumstances and how they make it work and of course the curry!  Then I have to mention Maldives – it has some sort of purity to it – the blue of the ocean, the sea life and being almost on your own Robinson Crusoe Island but just in true luxury and style.

Other countries travelled to:  Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Andorra, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Estonia, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Luxembourg, Monaco, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, The Vatican, Turkey, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Antiqua and Barbuda, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Martinique, Mexico, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Martin, The Bahamas, United States of America, Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, Botswana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe
