Why book with us

Why book with us

We find that many people assume that it’s cheaper to book direct with hotels or lodges however we are confident that you will save yourself lots of money, time and stress if you use the services of an experienced tour operator.

All our prices are based on the same as the rate paid by those who book direct … or even less! How can we do this? We negotiate special rates with the hotels given our volume of business so we make our money on the difference between the public or “rack” rates and our special rates. The hotels also sometimes offer us special long stay rates that aren’t always available on their websites.

But YOU gain so much more…
