Dragonfly Africa was initially born out of the country hotel that the company owned – Cybele Forest Lodge & Health Spa.
Throughout the 1980’s the travel business continued to expand and so moved its Head Office to Johannesburg, with an operations unit in Cape Town.
While South Africa experienced a change to a Democratic Government in 1994, the company saw additional opportunities in the MICE (meetings, conference, incentive & events) market and became involved with that from an early stage.
During 2010, Dragonfly Africa acquired 100% of Cape Town based competitor Green Route. This exciting development finalised the merger of two of Southern Africa’s leading inbound Travel and Destination Management companies.
With the acquisition of Green Route, The Dragonfly Africa Group has also invested in setting up Green Route East Africa. With an office in Nairobi, and now registered as a Kenyan Tour Operator, the East Africa office is well set-up to handle incentive programmes, conferences, and group and FIT bookings in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda.
Green Route Africa has also operated throughout Africa, completing programmes as far afield as Marrakesh, Addis Ababa and more.
Dragonfly Africa is involved in the following travel markets: USA & Canada, Australia & New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Singapore & Hong Kong.
The Dragonfly Africa Group has been awarded 10 SITE Crystal Awards, the travel industry equivalent of the Oscars, for the incentive market.
