  • Make an impact - for every 7 people we bring to Africa, we create one permanent job in the tourism industry
  • Earn an attractive remuneration package including a competitive base salary, 3% pension fund and 20 days of paid vacation per year
  • Enjoy heavily subsidized coffees and meals from our in-house chefs and baristas
  • Kick back in incredible office space in the heart of Cape Town
  • Make the most of travel deals for yourself, your family and your friends. From breathtaking African experiences to getaways at our inspiring locations, you’ll receive up to 90% discount from 80 different partners and suppliers across 7 countries. You'll get to take advantage of rebates on activities, transport and accommodation, including our own MannaBay and Silvan Safari Lodge!
