“Dragonfly Africa are absolutely fantastic to deal with. The feedback we have received from our clients so far has been great. It was a successful program and I couldn’t have done it without you and all the fantastic guides. Dragonfly Africa is definitely one of the best DMC’s I have worked with and hope to do so again soon!” Angela Fong, Program Manager, Directions Conference and Incentive Management
“I just wanted to thank you for your incredible work on my recent incentive program to Sun City & Cape Town. The hard work, dedication and attention to detail that was given to my program was second to none and I work with a huge array of Destination Management Companies around the world. South Africa is a truly amazing destination, however, without your skills and expertise on the ground it could easily turn into a logistical nightmare for a high end incentive program for 210 people. In particularly I want to personally thank Debbie, you have an amazing work ethic and an ability to just get things done (a quality very close to my heart!). Without you this program would not have been the huge success it was. Thank you again Dragonfly Africa, you are amazing operators and I look forward to working with you again in the future.”
Jocie Arnold, Directions CIM
“I wanted to thank you for your meticulous planning and care – it was an absolute delight to travel around South Africa with you. Dragonfly Africa has exceeded my expectations once again, and has provided an extraordinary five star African experience. The obvious highlight for me was of course Madikwe but it was great to finally see Cape Town as well as Sun City – I now know what I am selling to our clients when it comes to these destinations, and I would not hesitate in using the services of Dragonfly Africa to create the ultimate itinerary.”
Michael Walker, Directions CIM
“To Dragonfly Management,
I wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for all your hard work on the recent incentive trip to South Africa. The flexibility and constant can-do attitude made our job onsite an incredibly easy one. It is so fantastic to be able to work with a local DMC that you can trust will deliver at the standards and expectations of CiEvents.”
Caroline Gair, CiEvents – Sydney
“I’d like to take a few minutes of your time to thank you and your entire staff at Dragonfly Africa for making our ten-night stay in Johannesburg during the 2010 World Cup a huge success.
From my initial meeting with you, through to my final day in South Africa, every aspect of our trip that involved planning by Dragonfly Africa was exceptional.
I’d especially like to recognise Geraldine Stoltz for her extraordinary professionalism. Working with Geraldine by email and telephone for 24 months was a stress-free experience. Our meeting this January cemented my high regard for Geraldine; Geraldine’s attention to detail, her calm demeanor, her exacting standards, her enthusiasm and her great sense of humour made working with her a pleasure indeed.
When our group arrived early July and we took up residence in Melrose Arch, having Geraldine on-site everyday gave me great peace of mind that our program would run without a glitch. Geraldine oversaw every aspect of our groups’ stay and I can write unequivocally that it is because of her that everyone had a once-in-a-lifetime experience in South Africa.
Our accommodations were five star, our meals were delicious, and the daily tours were flawlessly executed. A visit to South Africa with the primary intention of attending three World Cup football matches evolved into a “total experience” in which – in some ways – football became the side note.
Personally, I would like to say that my visits to South Africa and my time working with you and Geraldine have fostered in me a special affection for South Africa in particular and southern Africa in general. My three weeks in Africa this winter were life-changing and I will always keep in my mind’s eye the smiling faces of each person I encountered during my stay.”
