TCD Destination Management Company (Pty) Ltd, t/a The Cape Discovered is a boutique destination management company tailoring unique, personalised private touring and sightseeing experiences, with custom designed itineraries, and seamless implementation and management around our client's desires, want-to-do's and must-see's to Southern African countries i.e. South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania.
We pride ourselves on providing personalised itineraries and seamless destination management.
This website is, we hope, the first step towards experiencing an Africa you perhaps dream of or have on your 'must-do' list.
From its inception, it has been our aim to show South Africa and Southern Africa as we know and experience it – diverse, beautiful, raw – and to do so in a way that caters for the dreams of its visitors, while at the same time paying real attention to its people, its land and to its animals.
To this end, our journeys into Southern Africa are in fact adventures of the spirit, designed to meet the expectations of a specific type of traveller. They are not holidays in the normal sense of the word. They are wondrous, awe-inspiring journeys through habitats that can change the way we look at the world.
Common to each, is the fact that every journey is meticulously planned, supported and delivered, employs the very best of ground operatives, and chooses to use only those areas and types of accommodation that share our philosophy on the importance of providing an experience that is as exceptional as it is beautiful.
The success of this approach, one aimed at providing a flawless, creative destination management and travel service, is underlined by the fact that over 80% of our business is with referred and repeat clients.
Let us be of service and guide you to Africa with a peace of mind borne from our deep understanding of this exceptional continent.
Welcome to our home!
We look forward to being of assistance in your Journey of Discovery in Southern Africa!
Who We Are and What We Do
"Destination Specialists do it better!"
The Cape Discovered Tours & Safaris and TCD Destination Management Company (Pty) Ltd offers a one-stop shop to an ultimate getaway to Southern Africa. Your own journey of discovery to the African continent starts by contacting us to discuss a customised plan and receive expert advice to achieve your desired travel experience in Southern Africa, regardless of the length of your trip.
Our aim, and what we excel at, is tailoring truly unique travel experiences with an emphasis on complete flexibility and real local knowledge, offering a variety of upmarket private tour and safari experiences which remains totally customisable to suit our clients' wishes. Where requested we offer a professional, knowledgeable tourist guide who will also be your private driver. The personal interaction with your guide allows your experience to be tailored around you, our, guest, and your requirements. No two custom tours are ever alike. Our only priority is to have 100% satisfied clients, who spread the word about their great experiences.
Our unique approach and flexibility offers you the opportunity to see and experience the Cape, South Africa and further afield in Southern Africa the way it is meant to be enjoyed. By limiting tour size, our day tours go where the big tour buses can't. We are not limited by corporate or business hours - we can adapt and adjust the itinerary to your pace - and we are able to sometimes do the seemingly impossible to delight our visitors - like timing it just right for a photo opportunity on a beach where it looks like you are holding the setting sun between your fingers - a golden moment.
We strive to provide the optimum value and best fit for our clients; our aim is to ensure that our guests move at their own pace and focus on their specific interests.
We cater for the more discerning traveller, where quality, comfort and luxury are priority, although this need not be reflected in the cost.
All excursions and tours are carefully planned to emphasise authentic local culture in a responsible way, including the most interesting attractions, performances, neighbourhoods and markets - our aim is to satisfy our guests' personal preferences, while drawing on our local knowledge to recommend suitable activities and excursions. Of course, if you prefer crowds...who are we not to oblige!
We welcome you with open arms and look forward to assisting you with your bespoke travel plans and personalised accommodation requirements, assuring you of an incredibly memorable stay.
