Sonika says:


My passion for the Tourism industry already began in School where I first learned more about the industry. After School, I started studying for my National Diploma in Tourism Management at the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth but finished it back in Johannesburg at the UJ: School of Tourism and Hospitality.


I was privileged to have my first working experience in the industry as a lodge manager in Hoedspruit. After staying in this lovely part of South Africa, I moved back to Johannesburg and managed a 4 Star Guesthouse, Conference and Function Venue.


After three years, I’ve decided to change the long working hours to office hours. I started as a reservations consultant and was promoted to Office Manager.


My passion for tourism, attention to detail, dedication and over 10 years’ industry experience allows me to offer you your next best holiday package.


Thank you for your enquiry.
