Founded in 1999 by Elzette Minnaar, EMT promoted tours to all the provinces of South Africa with the most popular being the peaks of the Drakensberg and Lesotho, the valleys of Mpumalanga, the vineyards of the Western Cape, the flowers of the West Coast and our rich wilderness of the North West. In 2003, EMT expanded its operations to include tours to neighbouring countries Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia.
In 2006 we launched our international tours with our first European tour covering 7 countries including the Greek Island of Santorini, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, France and England. It was an immense success and in 2007 we returned with double the number of guests on our European delight. In 2010, we included the wildbeest migration in the Serengeti and a relaxed island tour to Mauritius.
We currently boast 27 tours annually to all corners of Southern Africa and Europe with local highlights including the majestic Drakensberg range with a day trip up Sani Pass, the Lady Grey Passion Play during Easter weekend, the magnificent Wild Coast, the beauty of the Overberg, the nostalgic West coast and Namakwaland with its breathtaking flower displays and the scenic Western Cape with Table Mountain, Cape Point, SimonsTown, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Lions Head, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.
African highlights include a 14 day tour to all the corners of Namibia, Botswana with mokoro experiences in the Okavango Delta, Zimbabwe with the majestic Victoria Falls, listed as one of the 7 wonders of the world, or experience the greatest natural spectacle in the world, the annual wildebeest migration from Serengeti in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya. A more relaxed experience will be Mozambique where you can indulge in seafood till you drop in Bilene or experience an Island adventure on Mauritius.
Our European tour highlights the best of the best including the windmills and klompe of the Netherlands, cruise on the Rhine river in Germany, experience the majestic Swiss Alps, a gondola trip in Venice, the Vatican in Rome and the leaning tower of Pisa in Italy and finally the romantic city of Paris with the Eiffel Tower and river cruise.
All our tours include good quality accommodation (single or sharing), quality road and air travel, minimum two meals per day (unless specified otherwise in the tour program) and excursions specified in the tour program. Every tour is led by knowledgeable, friendly, helpful tour leaders that go out of their way to ensure ultimate satisfaction from the moment we receive your enquiry as a potential client to the day you end the tour as part of the EMT family looking forward to the next experience with us.
