Nic de Klerk
Director Southern Circle Tours and Safaris.
Nic de Klerk, an electronic engineer by trade, left the electronic company where he was the Technical Director in 1988 to start a career in the travel trade. He first concentrated on travel marketing and in 1990 moved to the operational side to be more hands-on. Coached by his brother Lodewyk, by then an old hand in the travel trade and the regional director in KZN for the then South African Tourism Board, he launched an inbound tour operator company and SOUTHERN CIRCLE TOURS & SAFARIS was born. The rest is history and a success story.
Key people involved in the subsequent growth and success of SCT & S were Nic's wife Beate, a busybody who from feeding the team and guiding to rushing around the world marketing us, Lodewyk and Anne-Marie, his wife, joined us on a permanent basis in 1996 and opened our Cape Town office.
The company grew from strength to strength and today we can pride ourselves on being one of the respected smaller operators in South Africa. We regard our policy as the very result of our success: We supply a personalized service and exclusive programs to small groups utilizing small luxury accommodation at affordable prices
