About us:

Ince Maree - owner:

My greatest passion is sharing the hidden natural gems of the Cape Floral Kingdom and South Africa with visitors. It is easy to be enthusiastic about the natural phenomena here at the tip of the African continent which is definitely worthwhile enjoying, conserving and sharing with visitors.

I have been operating a responsible tourism company called “The Eco-ist” for the last seven years after finishing a B.Sc degree in Nature Conservation, Botany and Geography and working and travelling abroad for a year.

During this period I have also been involved with several associations such as the South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA), focusing on their Responsible Tourism Strategy and the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA) – specifically involved with CREW – the Custodians of Rare & Endangered Wild Flowers.

Recently I have also become involved in advising companies in Cape Town on sustainability in the work place.

OUR GUIDES & CONSULTANTS ARE:

  • Well travelled
  • Experienced in tourism
  • Passionate about our country, its diverse cultures and natural habitats
  • Focussed on providing the best service
  • Attentive to conservation issues and responsible tourism practices

Varda & Dan
Dear Ince,

It is exactly three weeks since our return to Israel, full of stories, experiences and a definite wish to revisit SA in the future again.

I did want to say a special thank you  to you personally for the kind attention which you showed us from the first contact we made with you until the call asking us if all was ok.  The trip to the Drakensberg was just wonderful.  The scenery is not of your making but the conditions and our guide definitely contributed to a good experience.  We would recommend your company and Stef, our guide, to anyone at any time.  And if, at any time during the period of planning and decided, we had second thoughts about taking a trip of this kind, they soon dissolved.

I once again we wish you and your family a good 2012, in good health and fulfilment.
Sincerely good wishes and I hope that if you ever make a visit to our country, you will make sure to be in touch.
Varda
