Tourvest is Southern Africa’s leading integrated tourism group, operating businesses which range from travel management companies, hotels, lodges and restaurants to craft, curio and jewellery shops and foreign exchange bureaux, under some 60 sector-leading brands, employing more than 5 000 people.

The group was created in 1997 through the incorporation of a number of long-established tourism companies.  That same year, Tourvest listed on the Johannesburg Securities Exchange.  In August 2008, it was acquired by a black economic empowerment consortium (IDC, Old Mutual and Guma) and delisted.

Tourvest’s steady growth as a leading integrated tourism group has been driven by a commitment to exceptional quality, service and value; its people-centred business philosophy; the development of mutually rewarding partnerships; constant innovation; and world-class technology.  Tourvest is based in South Africa and is a global business, with operations in Southern, East and West Africa, India, the United Kingdom, Spain and the Caribbean, as well as having principals, associates and clients throughout the world.

Tourvest is an entrepreneurial business and each division is run as an autonomous business unit with separate boards supported in its efforts by head office.
