That said, Ron is passionate about Southern Africa and has travelled the region extensively. Having worked with clients from around the world, that have had greatly varied needs, he loves creating itineraries. From solo travellers to large groups Ron enjoys the nuts and bolts of travel planning. No matter the occasion he seeks to install something special and looks to inject that intangible sense of wonder, wherever possible.
