What Travel Designer does
When you travel with the Travel Designer you’re not a tourist and you won’t get a package. Instead our personalized, tailor-made experiences in and around the Mother City allow you to truly become a Capetonian and understand the city from a locals perspective.
Tell us who you are and what you like and you’ll become one with Cape Town and have an experience you won’t find anywhere else – and one you’ll never forget.
Ozzy understands travel
Born in Istanbul near that place where Europe meets Asia, throughout his childhood, Ozzy traveled extensively with his family, fuelling the desire to see the world, that grows ever stronger.
Cape Town captured Ozzy’s heart, and in 2009 he settled in the Mother City, which he now proudly calls home. Three years ago it was time for a change and motivated by a burning desire to offer the very best travel experiences for his clients in Cape Town and beyond, Ozzy founded his own bespoke tour operating company, Travel Designer.
True to the name, it is from here that Ozzy creates personalised, tailor-made experiences that allow you to feel like a Capetonian and understand the city from a local’s perspective. Motivated by the artists, eateries and hotspots he supports, Ozzy’s passion for the people, the planet and good times – is second to none. That and his ready smile and sense of humour, which seem perfectly matched to his consummate professionalism and commitment to giving you the very best of travel.
Dave the African
Dave Patrick first got bitten by the international travel bug when working for a commodity trading company in Johannesburg, with work taking him to many unusual places such as Iran, West Africa, Japan, and the Emirates.
A fortuitous break into Luxury Hospitality came in the form of a Marketing Management position at Rovos Rail, where he spent 11 happy years travelling extensively between the Americas and South Africa promoting the World’s Most Luxurious Train.
Dave’s contribution to the Travel Designer team is to harness his 13 years of sales and marketing experience to help Ozzy further develop both Travel Designer and the Unique Urban Safari concept.
This magical mix of happiness, enthusiasm and genuine sense of wonder that Dave has as a citizen of the Most Beautiful and Activity-diverse City in the World, is a valued addition to Travel Designer and only guarantees extraordinary things to come.
