Exotic Holidays are passionate about travel and about providing a unique and extraordinary travel experience.  Enthusiastic and accomplished travellers ourselves, Team Exotic recognise no two holidays are the same and specialise in tailor-made individual and group holidays, offering practical advice based on our personal travel experiences, a professional approach and seamless travel arrangements.

We offer an extensive product range varying from economy hotels to the most exotic hotels, spas and resorts, private tours and luxurious rail journeys. With the expertise to design customised itineraries giving total flexibility and the ability to arrange private transfers, excursions and organised tours.  Most of our packages can be operated in reverse or modified to suit any requirements.

Our programs are designed to ensure you get the most out of your trip. Let Exotic Holidays take you to the less frequented places to experience the sights, monuments and tourist attractions while experiencing local life.  Walk with the people, stroll through village markets, share in the cooking and eating of local cuisine, learn first-hand about unfamiliar cultures and traditions while creating memories to treasure a lifetime.

If you are keen to volunteer for a good cause, we can assist in finding a local NGO where you can give your expertise for any amount of time you can spare – be it a week or 12 months...from teaching English in a remote school to helping in a blind school, from building temporary shelters to caring at old-age homes...the opportunities are immense...and your skills are needed!

Plan your next holiday with us! Talk to your preferred Travel Agent or Broker to contact us.
