Ian Brentnall (

Ian BrentnallHaving been brought up in South Africa after his parents emigrated there in the 60’s, Ian qualified in management accounting followed by various senior positions in leading companies such as BMW, Kimberley Clark and EDS. This also meant that he lived and travelled in a number of countries including England, Sweden, The Netherlands, and France before returning to the country that he loves so much – South Africa.
His responsibilities in running travel departments for large organisations fuelled his passion for travel which ultimately led to his forming both a UK and South African based Travel Company which today offers the widest choice of itineraries throughout the African continent.
As a qualified Tourist Guide specialising in Wine, Golf and Safari’s, he’s always ready to offer you the best experienced advice.

The best thing about my travels:

For me, the late afternoon – early evening game drive is just out of this world. Seeing the sunset on the horizon sipping a lovely glass of wine sitting on a 4 X 4 in the middle of Africa! One of the reasons for being here!


Beverly Brentnall (

Beverley BrentnallAfter visiting and falling in love with South Africa, Beverly Brentnall started working full time with her husband Ian, creating tailored holidays for clients to South Africa. 
With a background in sales and marketing she soon filled a leading role in planning and tailoring both honeymoon and family holiday trips to South Africa. Now living in Cape Town, her on-the-ground knowledge is vital in offering her overseas clients the best accommodation to suit their budgets in a country that has become her passion.
Beverly also manages the partnership with the charity Trees4Schools.

The best thing about my travels:

It has to be for me the Cape Winelands! Not only is the scenery and Cape Dutch architecture just stunning, but the food and wine take some beating by anyone’s standards!. 
The summer is for sipping chilled Sauvignon Blanc or a sparkling Cap Classique whilst dining al fresco admiring the mountain views. The winter is cosy with log fires and delicious Pinotage, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the same spectacular views!


Gigi Becker (

Gigi Becker My career as a travel consultant started over 30 years ago as an outgrowth of my own passion for seeing the world.  Growing up in a travel enthused family, it gave me the opportunity to travel throughout the United States, Europe and South Pacific.  This progressed to a 25 year career as a Corporate Travel Manager, responsible for my clients specific travel needs.
As one might expect, travel planning has become second nature to me.  My experience with the travel industry gives me the knowledge and expertise to create travel adventures for my clients that satisfy them on a much deeper level.

The best thing about my travels:

Short and sweet, I love to experience a destination for the first time.
