Your local agent - anywhere in the world!
Personal attention, careful planning and experience
Rufaro started in 1994 as a full-service tour operator linked to the global Amadeus Reservation System. This enables us to use the latest travel information and technology to manage all our client’s travel services in-house.
We specialise in inbound travel arrangements and destination management to South Africa and its neighboring countries. Rufaro has excellent wholesale rates with leading principals and operators and we have the necessary expertise to give reliable, personal service to suit your clients' needs - for both groups and FITs.
The owner, Kitty Snyman, is widely travelled and has 27 years’ experience in the travel industry. She is ably assisted by a small team of dedicated and experienced consultants.
We know Africa and are passionate about sharing our travel experiences and expertise with our clients. Kitty ’s family has been living and travelling in Africa since the 1890’s. This adventurous, pioneering spirit is still to be found at Rufaro Destination Management.
Rufaro endeavours to assist and promote previously disadvantaged communities and emerging entrepreneurs in the travel industry. The company has regularly sponsored and mentored individual students as part of their corporate studies. We include community visits, development projects and township tours in practically every itinerary we create and suggest to our clients.
Rufaro is proudly South African. We know the people and the places.
