Established in 2007, Hotspots2c has grown to be one of South Africa’s favourite tour operators. Based in the Cape Town region, we offer scheduled group, private and tailor-made tours primarily to the Western Cape along the Garden Route, Addo and Kruger National Park and beyond.
Hotspots2c is the brainchild of Western Cape local, Johan Du Toit – a seasoned globetrotter who has travelled to more than 60 countries to date. We are owner-operated and offer easy and affordable touring options. Our passengers enjoy the convenience of a small tour and the luxury of choice - from activity options to where you stay.
At Hotspots2c, we do not want to be the largest tour operator in South Africa; we simply want to show off our beautiful country the best way we know. Being privately owned gives us independence and flexibility and is a competitive advantage in our quality control and accountability. We pay meticulous attention to itineraries and tap into our creativity when we plan our tours. Our bespoke itineraries and own luxury vehicle fleet can accommodate any group size to visit your preferred destination in Southern Africa.
Behind-the-scenes, our dedicated team has a cumulative industry experience of more than 150 years.
We are a unified company that believes travel is more than just visiting a place but it's about building relationships, making a positive change and about giving back to the community. That’s why we established our charity arm, 2cChange in 2016 to help achieve our goal in making a positive difference in the areas we travel through.
