About Island Fusion Travel

Island Fusion Travel is a division of African Fusion Travel (Pty) Ltd, a company registered in South Africa (2015/229312/07). Island Fusion was created to showcase the beautiful islands of the Indian Ocean and beyond. Our head office is based in Cape Town, South Africa, but our team includes regional travel specialists scattered around the world.

We are a dynamic team with over 25 years of experience, whose goal is to impart our knowledge, experience and “joie de vivre” into each and every itinerary that we create. And creation is what we do best – none of those “off the rack” itineraries are good enough for you.

We firstly listen to you, the client, and then combine quality products which we think will match your needs to perfection. Costs are an important consideration, both for you and for us, so we can assure you that we have negotiated with our operators to give you excellent value for money.

We don’t accept anything less than the best from our suppliers.
