I was always passionate about travel and tourism. It started at an early age where I spent a lot of time travelling around South Africa. I was particularly interested in wildlife and nature. Biggestleaf started out as a marketing company focused on the tourism industry. Biggestleaf Travel evolved from there. I keep looking for new innovative ways to do business in an industry that I’m passionate about.
Our work and company cultures are extremely important. We believe in investing in our staff; they’re our biggest asset. We believe in ethical values of integrity, honesty, fairness and respect and creating an open environment where staff can express themselves. We believe this will translate into a successful business relationship with our clients and suppliers. We also believe in embracing innovation and using that to deliver the best possible product and service to our clients.
Seeing the staff and clients empowered on all levels. Having a company that has grown and given opportunities to all walks of life. Seeing people experience positive change in their lives, a change that hopefully allowed them to experience many new things in life. Building a business that employees are proud to be a part off, having clients that keep coming back and suppliers that want to work with us. Getting positive feedback from clients and suppliers on their experience with Biggestleaf excites me and is huge motivating factor to keep getting better.
I chose Biggestleaf Travel because I can combine my passions and live them out to the fullest potential. I also love the ethos of the company, everyone gives their best to achieve maximum results – it’s really an environment I thrive in!
I have always loved marketing and I enjoy the creativity and logical thinking it requires. Strategizing is a passion of mine, and I get immense satisfaction from being involved in a project from conceptualization to delivery.
I grew up travelling and still love it; making new memories and impressions. Africa, being home, has a special place in my heart, I feel the colours, animals and people of this continent have so much vibrancy, life and passion that it just drags you along for the ride and in between the vast spaces feed your soul.
As a Product & Marketing Manager, I get to oversee contracting, maintaining relationship with current products and finding new ones, training consultants on these products, and negotiating specials for the company. I also work with the marketing team by providing them with product information and updates for our various campaigns.
Because travelling is a personal passion – works starts feeling less like work and more like keeping up with potential new holiday venues. I enjoy working with people who are passionate about a common goal, showcasing the best Africa has to offer.
The atmosphere is the office is great, I am lucky to have super colleagues. Happiness for me is when I can assist one of my colleagues or a client with a potential issue and we resolve it so that everyone walks away smiling or when I find a wonderful new gem to load to our product range.
I came from working at home, so when I met Robert and the team I was instantly drawn to the amazing atmosphere and family environment of Biggestleaf Travel. I was also looking for a new challenge and with the ever-growing nature of the business it has been an adventure.
I live around the corner so no traffic is a great plus (wink), but what I loved the most, when I first arrived at Biggestleaf Travel, was the warm, open and inviting atmosphere Robyn and Robert had cultivated. It’s very easy to love your job when your team is so fantastic!
I work closely with Robyn in doing all the invoicing of all bookings, reporting, creditor recons, payments and general administration functions. I guess you would say I’m better with numbers than words.
I knew Robert from when I was still working at a different tour operator – long before Biggestleaf Travel existed. Although I was hesitant to change companies, I really enjoyed the fact that Robert was always eager to listen and give advice – he promoted an open-door policy. So, decided to move over to Biggestleaf Travel in the hopes of finding something ‘ever-lasting’. A company where you are respected, treated equally and listened to.
I’m passionate about making a difference. When I’m involved with a project at work, I want to do my best to achieve success. I feel the same way about everything I do in my personal life. I always try to be a better person and to be happy and full of smiles and laughter.
My sister started working at Biggestleaf Travel 3 months before I started working here. Quina always came home smiling and raving about her fantastic place of work. I really wanted to be a part of such an awesome team that left one feeling so inspired and content – it didn’t take me long to request an interview with Robert.
What I enjoy most is when I work with happy clients and get valuable feedback. I enjoy making a lot of bookings, and feel motivated when I am able to beat my target from the previous day. I also love the fact that all our colleagues get along so well and that our work environment is a happy one.
I have had a growing passion for travel since I was very young. My curiosity with what the world had to offer was ignited as a child as our family spent a year travelling the globe – it seemed like a magical adventure.
The best thing about my job is getting to be a tiny part of someone’s larger process of creating memories. I love assisting people and I especially enjoy hearing back from my clients about their unforgettable time at the park.
Our key role as travel consultants is to plan and book holidays for our clients so that they can effortlessly experience some of the most amazing holiday destinations our beautiful country has to offer.
Travelling through beautiful South Africa, and experiencing the bush are two things I feel everyone should have the chance to enjoy. I love being able to offer our guests the opportunity to see and experience everything that comes with being in the bush and our amazing country. From the delicious food and incredibly vast wildlife to the spectacular African sunsets, we sure do have it all.
As we spend most of our day at work, it is very important to me to have a great environment and team to work with – Biggestleaf Travel definitely has both of these. From the quirky office characters to our awesome coffee station, each day is a pleasant one.
As I’ve been able to experience the amazing African bush, I wouldn’t be doing anything other than assisting everyone else to experience what I have. It’s totally indescribable until one has been there.
I have a great love for our beautiful country; I’m passionate about safari conservation and of course I’m a major lover of the game of golf. I believe that by combining these wonderful experiences we’re making South Africa a bucket list destination for many!
I loved the equality between staff and found a level of trust and openness between all of them. You have the space to be yourself while doing what you love. No matter what your job description is, if you have an opinion towards helping the company grow it will be a valued opinion.
I am a travel consultant for Pilanesberg National Park, I help clients book their accommodation and activities within the park. I also make sure that every single detail of their trip is taken care of to the best of my ability.
I love helping people to have the most memorable experience while travelling. Since I love being outdoors, seeking for adventures, helping others tick off their travelling dreams from their bucket list couldn’t make me happier.
Since I am at the Biggestleaf office for most of my day, it is important to have a great environment and team to work with – Both of which Biggestleaf Travel has without a doubt. Amazing staff with characteristics that will have you laughing and grinning the entire day.
My role entails working together with our guests to ensure they reach their final destinations smiling. My role also entails a good attitude, towards them and others; being more patient makes my job more enjoyable!
This company is driven by ensuring that its clients and employees are satisfied, by providing effective and efficient service/benefits through management styles. It’s so great to work for a company that truly values you!
Transportation of clients to their desired destinations and providing as much information as possible in an ethical and professional manner. I also represent the company (Biggestleaf Tours) I work for, hence I am, knowledgeable, skilful and in always proudly in uniform when on duty!
Knowing that I was able to make a good impression and assist our clients on their dream holiday. Receiving a big smile and a huge thank you is what makes my day; it means I have completed a successful mission!
I chose Biggestleaf Tours because it’s a trusted brand with a history of innovation in the tourism industry & it’s one of the world’s top brands for customer loyalty, with a commitment to true convenience & exceptional service.
My best part of the day is seeing my guests happy & smiling when I drop them off at their destinations, especially when we drive through the lodge site & they see elephants pass by & they scream. It’s so magical seeing someone on safari for the first time!
I love to be creative and come up with innovative ideas and designs whether it be for websites / marketing / music or woodwork. I am also passionate about travel, safaris, wildlife photography and going for a cruise on my bike.
I am responsible for development and updating of the website, designs for display Ads, Newsletters etc. I also stay on top of the latest development and design trends to make sure we are always innovative.
I have always been interested in design from an early age and being able to create something that not only looks good but also serves a purpose. So, I followed my passion and learnt how to write code and combine it with design.
I am the Search Analyst, which means I use various channels (mostly organic and paid) to drive targeting traffic and leads to our websites. My role mostly deals with our SEO and PPC strategies and the implementation of these.
Travel! Africa! Travelling some more! One of the greatest feelings in the world is standing admiring something you’ve never seen before, and had you not adventured to that spot – you may never have seen at all! There is so much beauty and wonder to admire in the world!
There are elephant, leopard and rhino photos all over the walls of the office, hello! Working in a space that reflects an authentic ethos and working in a team with like-minded individuals made choosing Biggestleaf a no-brainer for me. But, also, elephants on the walls…
Sharing is caring! I love the work we do here at Biggestleaf and I am very proud to work with such talented people – sharing the creations we come up with is something I am incredibly passionate about. We get to showcase one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and we do it well, it leaves me feeling like we’re a team of great ambassadors for South Africa.
The best part of my day must be sparking an engaging conversation on a social platform. So many people want to share their passion, pictures and past safari experiences with fellow bush babies – it’s so rewarding and often, very interesting.
I write. I write things. I write all the things. And I love it. I write blogs, web content, social media posts, articles and more. Biggestleaf allows my creativity to flow – and I follow a project from concept to pitch to research to writing, and all the way to the final product.
My passion for people, nature and travel knows no bounds. I believe travel is the University of Life, it brings wisdom knowledge and admiration. Not only do I live for the experience, but I live to share these experiences. Using creativity to inspire and educate others about the unseen beauty of our world is where my true passion lies.
Everything is so green! Not only did I love the colourful and open atmosphere, there was an electric energy fused with ambition and passion that caught my attention immediately. I knew this innovative and creative space is where I could reach my full potential. I felt like a kid getting a pass to go to Disneyland every day!
I am the Junior content writer, so I write and write and write some more! I’m also a helping hand to those in need, I dabble between managing social media, writing blogs and coming up with new marketing strategies. This is literally my dream job…
I might not be the biggest socialite when it comes to real life, you know like face-to-face kind of stuff which can be tricky since I love interacting with people, but I found a happy compromise – writing. It might not be actual human interaction, but make no mistake writing leaves you just as exposed to the world as a conversation between people could. I love writing and I believe in sharing knowledge and passion to inspire others. Which is why I do what I do, for a company that believes in these values just as much as I do…
The best part of my day would be when I arrive at work. Feeling excited for the new day to begin and for the new challenges to overcome, knowing that my team is ready to teach me all I need to know and answer my every question – helping me to progress and becoming the best version of me.
