Chasing Rainbows & Catching Dreams

Dreamcatcher provides opportunities for communities living in recurrent poverty to improve quality of life and a future in which they can thrive. Working with diverse cultures in 20 South African regions over 25 years, our impact is guided by and assessed against the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We have the passion and skills to offer visitors the chance to ‘go truly local’, to build knowledge and understanding between people, knowing their support really helps. Welcome!

Travel to South Africa

We live and work in stunning environments among the locals and know South Africa inside out. Offering an alternative to the bus window tour, we add "life see encounters" to sight seeing. Dreamcatcher tours engage, walkabout, talk about, eat about and have fun with the locals. We are also helping communities. Your patronage assists locals to build stronger communities and enabling relationships between the local people and visitors to South Africa. Welcome! Read more
