Bongelwa Qandashe

Meet Bongelwa Qandashe

Bongi was born in a small village in the Eastern Cape, but that didn't stop her from wanting to travel the world. After school she moved to Cape Town to study Hospitality Management and then went on to earn a scholarship in Hospitality Business Management in Birmingham, England. It was there that she truly fell in love with tourism and was inspired to pursue it further. On her return to Cape Town she worked for several top hotels before joining Rhino Africa. She admits it may be cheesy but Bongi absolutely loves her job and helping people plan their dream holidays. When not at work Bongi can be found at home with her three-year-old son, Bukho.

Client Feedback

  • "This was one of our best trips, well organized, very interesting and really exciting. Everything worked well, all the transfers, all the one-day-trips and our flights. The hotels you have chosen where great. Thank you so much." - Bachmann Pasquale, Switzerland
  • "It was an incredible journey - everything went smoothly, we felt great everywhere we went to, we saw everything we intended to and more, we were blessed by the weather, reception service in all guesthouses, restaurants, even parking assistants were warm, friendly and helpful. Of course, most of all, your ability to meet our needs in the planning stage, and your immediate availability to listen and make swift changes during our trip were second to none. Not sure if it's mere luck that we had you as our trip planner, we feel wonderfully lucky." - Joseph Goh, Hong Kong
  • "To top off the holiday, my boyfriend proposed to me at Cape of Good Hope so it really is a holiday that I will never forget. Thank you Bongi once again for all your help. I would highly recommend your services to anyone and we will definitely be returning to South Africa and be in touch with you again." - Sarah Williams, UK
