[dropcap size=small]E[/dropcap]veryone loves travelling to exotic locations. However, some of us would rather not spent the nights in a tent; we’d rather go back to 5 star luxury accommodation. If this sentiment chimes with your idea of an enjoyable holiday, then perhaps you should have a word with the knowledgeable and very understanding travel designers at Jacada Travel.
Founded in 2008 by Alex Malcolm, Jacada Travel offers inspired itineraries for travellers seeking a truly personal travel experience with discreet, attentive service from start to finish.
Jacada’s expert travel designers can offer clients a unique insider’s guide to South America and Africa – from quaint vineyard hotel stays in Mendoza, Amazon tribe encounters in Peru, and archaeologist-guided private tours of the Mkgadikgadi Pans in Botswana, to secluded beachfront villa stays with access to pristine and deserted beaches on the private islands of Mozambique (pictured). In short, Jacada helps travellers make more of their time away, experiencing places far from the madding crowd.
Jacada have customised a variety of fabulous trips to accommodate each individual traveller’s needs and interests, as well as ensuring that they travel in the style to which they have become accustomed. There’s certainly a gastronomic focus; whether tasting the ceviche of Peru, haute cuisine in Cape Town, wine from Chile’s Central Valley or Mendoza, Argentina, there’s a trip to suit every palate.
Malcolm is in no doubt as to why his service has become increasingly successful, despite the unprepossessing global financial climate: “Travellers have less time to take off and that means no time for making errors on the ground; therefore, personalised, private-guided travel requests have grown even more,” he remarks.
“Travellers are seeking the knowledge and support of a trip designer to guide their planning process and trip and are no longer settling for a basic travel template – they want a tour that’s tailor made to their interests with seamless execution on the ground.”
There’s little doubt that Jacada are speaking our language, from Latin America to Africa.
