IslandStays Melkbosstrand is managed by Tracy Wadsworth.


Tracy says:

My career in Tourism started in the hospitality industry, when in my early twenties, I decided to travel to the UK on a two-year Working Holidaymaker Visa. During this time, I worked at unique properties in Scotland like Monachyle Mhor Hotel in Balquhidder and The Royal Scots Club in Edinburgh.

Once my visa expired, I returned to Cape Town to study Travel and Tourism, and then took up a contract to work at a hotel in Dubai. When I eventually returned to Cape Town, I continued working in the hospitality industry, a highlight being working at two beautiful 5-star Collection by Liz McGrath properties - The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel and The Plettenberg.


I then had the opportunity to move into inbound tour operating, which I gladly took up as it involved working with high quality tourism products, and I knew that it would be a great learning experience. I enjoyed holding a Tour Consultant position where I specialised in organising golf tours and safaris around South Africa.


Next, I moved on to a position at a renowned tour operator, where I co-ordinated the land arrangements for luxury cruise ships that visited ports around the coastline of South Africa and Namibia. I also started up my own inbound tour operating business for a while, most notably looking after the travel arrangements for almost 100 visitors to South Africa during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

However, I have now found my travel niche, specialising in finding the perfect island holiday for South African residents. I joined a well-known online travel company as an Indian Ocean Island Specialist, specialising in travel to Mauritius, Zanzibar, Seychelles and the Maldives. I have been lucky enough to go on some incredible Educational Trips with tour operators like Beachcomber, World Leisure Holidays and Island Light Holidays, and have experienced their incredible properties first-hand.

My attention to detail, enthusiasm, thorough knowledge and personal experiences, all contribute to me finding the perfect holiday for my clients. I am happy to go the extra mile to assure them that they have made the right choices, and always conduct myself with the honesty and integrity that they would expect of me.
