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

Norma and Brian, Australia
Thank you very much indeed for the lovely photographs and for all your care and trouble on the trip.  We enjoyed it immensely.   
I think the highlight was really going into the veld with the owners of the reserves and seeing the flowers up close and hearing all the details about them.  The vistas were awesome - we couldn't believe they could be so prolific and beautiful.  Weren't we lucky to choose such a good year!
Thank you too for the book you gave us.  It will always remind us of the wonderful time we had with you.
Kindest regards
