Skål & Destination Africa

What makes working with destination africa special?


Hi, I'm Niel Els


It is with great pleasure and a deep sense of gratitude that I share my spiritual connections and the remarkable journey I have embarked upon with Destination Africa (DA). Let us reflect on the profound beauty and diversity that Africa holds within its vast lands and captivating cultures.

What is Destination Africa?

Throughout my life, I have been fortunate to forge invaluable connections with friends from all corners of the globe. These friendships have blossomed into something truly extraordinary, transcending borders and bridging cultural divides. They have allowed me to discover the beauty of spiritual connections that extend beyond our physical presence, intertwining our souls with an unbreakable bond.

Destination Africa is more than just a travel company. It is a conduit for these spiritual connections to flourish, offering a gateway to the mesmerizing continent of Africa. Africa, with its stunning landscapes, awe-inspiring wildlife, and rich heritage, has the power to transform lives and leave an indelible mark on our souls.

So, why have I chosen to work with Destination Africa? The answer lies in their unwavering commitment to curating unforgettable experiences for their clients. With their deep understanding of the African continent, they craft tailor-made itineraries that capture the essence of everyone’s desires, ensuring that every journey is as unique as the person embarking upon it.

What sets Destination Africa apart is our passion for not only showcasing Africa’s natural wonders but also its vibrant communities. They believe in responsible tourism, empowering local communities and preserving the delicate ecosystems that make this land so extraordinary. 

Destination Africa contributes to sustainable development, making a positive impact on the lives of those living in the destinations they visit.

Millions still live in the large townships, and after a visit to the famous District 6 in the centre of Cape Town, we head to Khayelitsha, the largest township, to see and feel life there.


Collaboration with the industry is of great importance. I am also the general manager of Vida Nova Retreat in Cape Town. This luxury boutique hotel is the preferred accommodation partner of Destination Africa in Cape Town. This synergy ensures continuity and excellent service to our visitors.

Corporate social responsibility

My good friend and business partner in Destination Africa, Rune Engstrøm, is also a board member of Ecpat International.

Skål is a global organization of travel and tourism professionals, while Ecpat International is focused on combatting the sexual exploitation of children in the travel and tourism industry. This partnership reflects a strong commitment to social responsibility and ethical business practices.

By leveraging our resources, expertise, and networks, Skål and Ecpat can make a significant impact in raising awareness, advocating for policy changes, and implementing measures to prevent child exploitation in the travel industry. It’s important to continue supporting and promoting initiatives that prioritize the safety and well-being of children, as they are some of the most vulnerable members of society.


If you have any specific questions or need more information about their collaboration or related topics, feel free to ask!

It is with great excitement and heartfelt enthusiasm that I invite each and every one of you to reach out to me for all your travel needs in Africa. Whether you yearn to witness the majesty of the Serengeti’s Great Migration, explore the ancient wonders of Egypt, or immerse yourself in the vibrant rhythms of South Africa, Destination Africa stands ready to create an unforgettable journey tailored to your desires.

For a taste of the wildlife in Africa, there will also be time to the northeast of Cape Town where we can experience “The big 5”.

Our Partners Are Like Family to Us!

Let us embark on a shared adventure, one that traverses borders and ignites our souls. Together, we can uncover the hidden gems of Africa, forging memories that will forever remain etched in our hearts.

Reach out to me and let us embark on this extraordinary journey together.

Thank you, and may our spiritual connections guide us on this incredible voyage of discovery.
