Owner Managed

Into Africa is a Destination Management Company, based in Cape Town, which has been privately owned and managed since 1991. Nick Buckland, one of the founders, is the current owner.

Service Ethic and Partnerships

We design, develop, and deliver leisure travel, conferencing, and incentives for global clients across Southern and East Africa. We have a solid service ethos and believe strongly in partnerships both with our clients and suppliers and we feel this is what sets us apart.

Experienced Specialist Staff

We have a diversely skilled, strong team of over twenty people.  We are proud of our staff retention over the years – an important and often underrated measure of a service business.

Core Values

The values of our staff include ownership, trust, collaboration, passion, and loyalty and these form the basis of the key ingredients required for the delivery of successful events. These, in conjunction with our experience and our ability to listen and understand our clients’ needs, bear testimony to the return business we achieve.

Dedicated Departments for MICE and Leisure

Into Africa offers both MICE and leisure services with both of these specialized departments working with a philosophy of creating tailor-made itineraries specifically for our client’s needs.

The Perfect Fit.

We consider ourselves to be small enough to be light on our feet, and adaptable, yet large enough, and experienced enough, to deliver hugely successful programs. Our track record speaks to this.
