The internet has changed the way people travel, and most travellers now book their flights online. As a result many travel agents have cut-back or even closed down some of their branches or offices.
Independent travellers like to plot their own course, and combined with the online phenomenon this has naturally led to an abundance of websites in the tourism industry. Some websites offer all-in group packages, some only offer international or local flights, some offer fly/drive packages, and other sites are great for booking international accommodation or car rentals.
The Marvic Tours and Tales website (http://www.marvic.biz) focuses on the nitty gritty of an exotic destination ... the local experience.
Marvic (husband and wife team, Marcel and Victoria Koning) has teamed up with responsible tour operator partners in South Africa, who share Marvic’s vision and follow the principles of fair trade in tourism. They believe in providing their guests with

Special interests are also catered for in daily activities such as cage diving with Great White Sharks, whale watching, spring wildflower spectacles, birding and extreme activities like bungy jumping, quad biking, surfing, hiking, sea-kayaking and lots more.
Travellers wishing to fill a couple of days in their itinerary can also choose one of the extended adventures that comprise of a few
