Suzette Van der Laan

Travel Specialist

Suzette was born in Pretoria, South Africa and made her way to Cape Town in the late 1990’s. Over the years, she has been fulfilling her lifelong dream of travelling the world and visiting over 50 countries including some of the most beautiful Indian Ocean Islands. During this time she was working as a flight attendant for Qatar Airways - the world’s only 5-star airline

As time passed, Suzette longed to return home to African soil. Today, she is settled in Cape Town and is passionate about sharing her love of Africa with our international and local guests.

Favourite Destination: 

There are too many to mention, but Mauritius & the Seychelles rank very high on her list.

Most Treasured Travel Experience:

Suzette grabbed the opportunity to show some of her Greek friends visiting South Africa around the gorgeous Cape Peninsula. They went from driving around the trendy streets of Cape Town, to having a picnic in perfect serenity along Chapman’s Peak followed by the bucket list attractions of going up Table Mountain, visiting Cape Point and seeing the penguins at Boulder's Beach all in one day! 

Their visit reminded Suzette of how fortunate she is to be living in the most beautiful part of South Africa. Suzette now makes a point of exploring her “hood” in more detail every chance she gets and never fails to find more fascinating and beautiful areas.
