Enriching lives by creating unique experiences

Enriching lives by creating unique experiences

Dear customers and industry partners, welcome to our first blog of 2016! While looking through the hundreds of images I have gathered over the past two months, from amazing local tours to travel expo’s in Belgium and Istanbul, it occurred to me that the core of what African Hoopoe Tours represents and what we as a team are passionate about, is encapsulated in the image and headline you see above. In light of this, the focus of this months blog is on the services we offer and the commitment we have to enriching our customers lives through tourism.

Firstly however, a big thank-you to all the people who have made this years trip to Vakantiebeurs and the Emitt Trade Fair a success and to the hospitality of friends, old and new who took the time and effort to make my trip one that I will remember for a long time to come.

African Hoopoe Tours started from humble beginnings in 2007 and through commitment, hard work and a passion to create memorable experiences for our clients, we have grown from strength to strength. African Hoopoe now offer a host of professional services catering to a broad range of clients, as outlined on the right.

Thanks as always for your support!,… all of us at African Hoopoe Tours wish you an exciting and prosperous year in travel.

About the Author
In 1996, Marius du Plessis made a career change and started working at a medium sized tour company in, Cape Town. He qualified as a tour guide and was soon on his way to becoming a top guide. A year later he joined a big tour operator specializing in day tours and charters. It had always been Marius’ dream to run his own business and in 2007 he purchased his first touring vehicle, a Mercedes Vito, while still guiding full time. Renting his vehicle to the movie industry he realised the potential, so in 2010 he went on his own, and African Hoopoe Tours and Charters was born. With the 2010 FIFA World Cup being hosted in Cape Town, timing could not have been better. From these humble beginnings African Hoopoe Tours have grown from strength to strength.
