The Boleng Story

How it all started…

On 1 May 1994, the Snyckers family celebrated being in South Africa for 54 years. Their bond to this country and the optimism for the future was manifested in July 1994 in the tourism branch, when Wolf Snyckers founded one of the first “Diving Plus”-Tour Operators for visitors to South Africa. This is the same year that the first democratic elections were held and Nelson Mandela became President of South Africa.

BOLENG is also well-known in the circle of non-divers for its varied and detailed self-drive tours. Our tours include, besides diving, almost any activity you can think of. We now also organize tours to our neighbouring countries Namibia, Mozambique and Botswana, even to parts of Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Finding a suitable name: BOLENG

In Northern Sotho, one of our 11 official languages, this means “quality”. Because in his line of work of his “previous life” as engineer and CEO, Wolf was always very focused on providing his customers with products of high quality. It was very close to his heart to also apply this principle to tourism. This is why we provide each guest with individual and detailed tour documentation that accompanies guests throughout their trip.
