About Us

About Us

We have been in operation since 2008 and we operate from Pretoria, South Africa. The company was founded by Jacques Blignaut, an entrepreneur and passionate traveller. In the last 15 years Jacques has travelled to more than 60 countries around the world, dealing with High Nett Worth Individuals, governments and business owners and he has experienced everything from supercars in Monte Carlo to donkey carts in Mumbai. He continually pushes to find establishments offering outstanding service, ultimate luxury and something different to the ordinary. Jacques featured on Top Billing with Jeani D showing how easy it has become to travel around Cape Town via helicopter, rent a luxury Ferrari F430 for the morning, play 9 holes of golf at Steenberg and be back in the office to catch up on emails in the afternoon.
