SW Team

About Us

With over 20 years’ experience and destination knowledge, South African-based SW Africa offers tailor-made corporate and leisure travel, meetings and incentive travel solutions throughout Southern Africa.

We have built our business around our burning passion for Southern Africa, its people, animals and landscapes, offering prompt, accurate, creative and relevant travel solutions and personalised service to ensure our travelers return home having enjoyed the ultimate, unforgettable journey.

Scanworld Travel (Pty) Ltd, (today trading as SW Africa Destination Management) was founded in January 1997 as one-man concern, from where it grew into the reputable "boutique DMC" that it is today.

A proud shareholder in the Travel Smart Crew (TSC) consortium, the company has a strong connection and affiliation to Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia, due to the original founder (and still part owner) Kenneth Malmqvist, being originally from the travel industry in Sweden.

Currently under ownership and management of Henk Graaff , the company employs nine staff at their office in Rosebank , Johannesburg and has two divisions, namely SW Business Solutions and SW Leisure Travel, that serve the MICE and Leisure segments of the market.
