What an inspirational introduction to the tourism industry it was for me 23 years ago at Green Route, southern Africa’s globally acclaimed Destination Management Company. That truly was starting out at the most demanding and creative cutting-edge of our industry. It was an extraordinary specialist company that produced and delivered several hundred amazing group events, particularly at Victoria Falls.
I was exhilarated by the challenge, to shun the mundane and ordinary, and rose to General Manager. In planning a client’s programme two credos were sacrosanct and they remain etched deep in my soul as I now launch my own company, Travel Portfolio:
· Excellence is in the Detail
· Where is the Magic?
No lofty boasts, just the promise to our clients that we will plan and deliver the best, and often surprising, solutions. We’ll share our exuberance and deep knowledge of southern Africa and tailor-make YOUR special trip or event.
I have worked for some exclusive Safari Camps and have set up tour divisions for two large travel companies. I am a former president of the Harare branch of the global tourism club, SKAL, and am proud to always follow their ethos. I love gardening, pottery and reflexology and am passionate about protecting our wildlife and birds in Zimbabwe.
Now I have my own Travel Portfolio, surrounded by a team of inspiring and vastly experienced like-minded Zimbabweans. That’s what sets us apart – unrivalled experience and local knowledge which we bolt on to the promise of integrity and trust when you choose us.
Please, come and meet us and let’s explore the possibilities together!
