Our Team


Mark Marais MD Chaka Travel Belfast puts in some golf practice

Mark is a member of Portsalon Golf Club in Donegal Ireland and also regularly plays at Clandeboye and Scrabo near to Belfast. Running a golf travel business has given him the opportunity to play some amazing courses all over the globe including South Africa the country of his birth. "South Africa offers the opportunity to play world class courses in stunning locations and is for those who want a golfing adventure rather than a resort holiday.".

Favourite Course: Fancourts Montagu and Outeniqua courses are hard to beat but the new St Francis Links just pips them at the post
Best Moment: Being first to tee off on a group trip to SA with everyone hovering about and managing to hit one straight down the middle, a relatively rare occurrence!
Favourite Tour: Cape Town, Winelands and Garden Route golf with a safari


Gerard Watson

Gerard is a member of Holywood Golf Club County Down, Northern Ireland where Rory McIlroy hails from. "I have been lucky enough to have travelled to some wonderful places throughout the world, South Africa, Bermuda and Mexico are some of my favorites’. I love nothing more than sharing my knowledge with our customers and putting together a memorable holiday for them that they will remember for years to come. Apart from travelling my other interests are keeping fit, hitting a ball around a golf course which I must admit is a struggle sometimes and playing football. I love working at Chaka Travel because everything we do has our customers at heart. Chaka Travel has been built on long lasting and positive relationships with our customers and this is what we pride ourselves on! I look forward to speaking with you and helping you organise that dream trip." All the best, Gerard

Favourite Course:Arabella Golf Course in the Western Cape although Fancourt is a great golf resort also.
Best Moment: A tap-in birdie on the 9th hole at Arabella.
Favourite Tour: Cape Town, Winelands and Garden Route

In Safe Hands

We are aware that you may be concerned with the protection of the money you pay when booking a holiday. Here we describe the protection we have put in place to safeguard your interests. We do not accept payment by credit card over the internet. On booking you will be sent an invoice by post and you will have the choice of paying by cheque or bank draft by post or by credit card over the telephone.

ATOL 9422

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website - are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:

ABTA: Why we are not members of ABTA
We are not members of ABTA as we are tour operators and not travel agents, the difference is that travel agents buy holidays from a third party whilst we as Tour Operators deal direct with hotels, airlines etc. All ABTA members have to buy from ATOL holders as this means the holiday has financial protection.

Our Teams Tips

For first time visits to South Africa I would highly recommend spending a few nights in Cape Town. Top class golf courses like, Arabella, Steenberg & Clovelly are easily accessible from Cape Town and at night time you can enjoy everything this vibrant city has to offer!".
