About us

With 16 years’ experience in the Travel Industry, it was time to take the next step and start my own company. During 2013 I have put together a business plan, believing that it will one day fall in the right hands. While working as an Operations Manager (2017) at a Labour Placement Company, I did a client visit at a construction company and the owner of the construction company was one of my clients at a Travel Agency I used to work for. We started talking during September 2017 and joined forces opening Imani Adventure Travel in January 2018.

With my years of experience and joint partnership, I believe that Imani Adventure Travel will succeed and grow to be one of the best Travel Agencies in Bloemfontein.

Imani Adventure Travel has joined eTravel who has over 200 affiliated Independent Travel Companies (ITCs) around the country with supporting offices in Bryanston, Johannesburg and Century City, Cape Town. eTravel was founded in 1999 and is registered with IATA (International Air Transport Association) and ASATA (Association for South African Travel Agents). The group has grown to become one of the largest independently owned travel companies in South Africa with an annual turnover and market share that ensures a buying power large enough to have access to the best rates and supplier relationships.

We adhere to the Industries rules and regulations as we pride ourselves on honesty and integrity with personalised service to outmatch our competitors.

Our values are also reflected in our logo. Imani comes from Swahili and is translated to Faith. The five stones below the name is a reminder of the Faith David had when he defeated Goliath.
