Chasing Rainbows & Catching Dreams

Dreamcatcher provides opportunities for communities living in recurrent poverty to improve quality of life and future in which they can thrive. Working in 20 communities across South Africa for over 20 years, we have the passion, skills and credibility to offer visitors the unique chance to 'go truly local', knowing their support is helping communities to grow.

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 site 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 along the routes. Welcome!Read more
