Company Profile

Since 1997 , South Africa-based, SW Africa Destination Management has been offering  tailor-made travel solutions throughout Southern and Eastern Africa.  We have built our business around our burning passion for Africa, its people, animals and landscapes. Our mission is to offer prompt, accurate, creative and relevant travel solutions and a friendly personalised way,  to ensure that our clients return home having experienced an unforgettable and life changing journey in spectacular surroundings .

Scanworld Travel (Pty) Ltd, (today trading as SW Africa Destination Management) was founded  in January 1997 as one-man concern, from where it grew into the reputable "boutique DMC" that it is today.  We are a proud shareholder in the Travel Smart Crew (TSC) group, which guarantees us the buying power that you, as our valued client, expects and deserves. The company has a strong connection and affiliation to Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia and Finland, due to the original founder (and still part owner) Carl Malmqvist, being originally from the travel industry in Sweden. Currently under ownership and management of Henk Graaff , we cover the entire Southern and East African sub-regions from our  office in Rosebank , Johannesburg.
Our four dedicated divisions, namely SW Business Solutions (MICE),  SW Leisure Travel,    SW Luxury Travel,  and  SW Golf Travel  ensure that all requests are handled by a consultant with the appropriate knowledge and expertise to expedite effectively.

We are members of SIte, IAGTO, SATSA, and Fair Trade in Tourism and we are a proud donor to The Love Trust , a South African non-profit organisation with the vision to nurture future generations of servant leaders through the delivery of excellent Christian education to vulnerable children in disadvantaged communities.
