CLARISSA du Plessis Bloemfontein Franchise Owner and USA Hospitality Internship Program Manager
Hi all future travellers! My name is Clarissa and travel is an absolute passion for me! It is the one thing in life that I believe every person should try at least once, and at OVC we will do our utmost to help you realise your dreams!
My travel career started whilst I was studying towards my Travel and Tourism Degree. In 2003 I set off on my first work & travel experience to the UK where I spent a bit of time in London and eventually ended up in the beautiful town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. I met new people, ate weird food (including LOTS of chips and baked beans -YUCK!) I grew more independent whilst gaining a different outlook on life.
During this time I was fortunate enough to travel to many places in Europe and some of my experiences included eating the BIGGEST pretzels in Munich, marvelling at the Alps in Switzerland, eating crêpes on the Champs Elyseés in Paris, almost getting run over by a bicycle in Amsterdam, tasting Schnapps in Austria, getting lost in Rome and watching the sun set whilst floating through the water canals in Venice.
Besides Europe, I have also travelled to countries in Africa including Uganda, Swaziland, Lesotho and my favourite - MOZAMBIQUE (where the diving is excellent by the way!). I have also travelled to the States, Mexico, Thailand and Bali.
At our office here in Bloemfontein, we will truly listen to all your travel needs and put together the experience of a lifetime!

“Life is a journey – enjoy the ride!” It has become a bit of a clichè, but I believe it is true. So far, my journey was rather incredible. During my student years, I travelled to Lesotho twice on outreach programmes. After graduating, I went to the USA on an internship in the Florida Keys. My year in the US included snorkeling and jet skiing in the Mexican Gulf, enjoying sunset cruises in the Atlantic Ocean, experiencing Broadway, Central Park and going to the top of the Rockefeller Centre in New York. I watched a football and basketball game, both entertaining, but rugby and cricket are still my favourites! Two of the highlights were visiting Universal Studios and Disney World in Orlando.
My next adventure was visiting Alberta, Canada and falling in love with the Rocky Mountains. I did an ice-walk in a frozen canyon, went white-water rafting in salmon-rich rivers and swimming in glacier-fed lakes. I did a bobsleigh-ride on the 1988 Olympic track and visited Olympic torches in Calgary and Vancouver. I went on an amazing bear-safari and almost got trampled by an elk while picnicking at a river! I went shopping in the biggest mall in North America, saw a rodeo and watched an ice-hockey game.
While working for OVC I have had the opportunity to travel to Mauritius, Thailand and the UK. In Thailand we spent one night in Bangkok and had a very scary Tuk-Tuk ride. Down in Krabi we saw the famous James Bond Island, climbed 1237 steps to see the sunrise from the Tiger Cave Temple, enjoyed massages on the beach and went snorkeling in crystal clear water. In Chiang Mai we went elephant tracking, enjoyed white water rafting and shopping at the markets. We also went to see how the hill tribes live. In the UK, I got to see all the big tourist spots in London. We also visited, Cambridge, York, Liverpool, Dublin, Cardiff, Bath, Stonehenge and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the town in the UK with the longest name!
I am addicted to adventure. My current adventure involves exploring my own beautiful country, while sending some new travellers into the world to go and have their own adventures. As the South African Airlines coffee cup says "Ukuhamba kukubona" – Travelling opens a window to the world…
