Today is the fifth anniversary of Travel Butlers’ first client booking
We have come a long way since that warm and sunny spring day in Cape Town – our first client booked a few nights at Tsitsikamma Lodge on the Garden Route, and since then we have helped many thousands of people plan their safaris, honeymoons, and family holidays to Southern Africa.
We have also literally come a long way, moving the company from South Africa back to the UK in 2004. So whilst we celebrated our first booking in a beach-front bar in Camps Bay, we will be toasting our fifth anniversary in a cosy pub in Weybridge (just outside London). At least it is not raining at the moment…although it probably won’t be long before the next downpour!
Many thanks to all the people who have made this such a successful and enjoyable period for us, especially the many wonderful guests we have helped plan honeymoons, African safari holidays and other special trips for; our friends in the trade in South Africa, Namibia, and the surrounding countries; and of course the excellent people who have worked so hard with us over the years: Susan, Anneli, Bryony, and Alys.
Here’s to the next 25 years!
Tracey & Paul Campbell.
