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

Laurentiu & family, Romania
Now I'm back home but a part of my hart remains in your country. Thank you very much for your hospitality and for the magnificent time we spent with you. It was a wonderful experience watching whales, learning about plants, wondering in the bushes observing animals at natural home. Amazing.... and for all I thank you again. South Africa is one of the most exotic but exclusive and magnificent destinations for trips and adventure.
