Why we do what we do

From one of the founder’s pen…

Hennie Albertse - LifeChanging HolidaysEveryone has good & bad times and when I ponder for a moment on the bad & challenging times in my life (which includes burnout during the early stages of my career), I can give first hand account that “all things work together for the good”; a foundational truth on which LifeChanging Holidays are build.

During May 2006, I came at a crossroad, asking myself “Am I just building my career, making money and hope for the best or am I actually making a difference in people‟s lives?” During that time; a season of frustration with where I was, I actively investigate ways in which I can add value to life. Bit by bit, the dream of LifeChanging Holidays (as it is today) practically started to take root in my heart…

Our purpose today is to design LifeChanging Holidays where people can rejuvenate, recuperate & revitalize their soul… It is our goal to increase smiles & put a sparkle into our client‘s eyes! We trust that each & every client return home (after a holiday) with a moving, lasting LIFE-CHANGING experience…

If you want to plan your holiday yourself, LifeChanging Holidays offer an affordable ― One stop Convenient Shop, with hand-picked industry suppliers to meet all your needs. Our service also extend to personalized holiday planning where you can sit back & relax while we organize everything for you…

Why would one choose the first option (SELF-Plan)?

  • If you are exploring holiday options not only within the borders of South Africa, but also other international destinations of the world.
  • If you find it exciting & rewarding to plan your own holiday and to deal directly with suppliers.
  • If you have the time available to investigate, compare, negotiate & book what suites you individually.
  • If you know what you want and you have general travel knowledge.
  • If you have a tight budget…

Why would one choose the second option (WE-Plan)?

  • Passion & Purpose: From experience and observing current trends, I‘ve realized that many people are on the verge of burn-out; running the rat race, chasing money, power & prestige. We live in an age where family life (in general) is crumbling and pseudo relationships becoming more & more a reality. People don’t know how to ‘live’ anymore; how to play and how to enjoy everyday life and appreciate life as a gift. It is my (& my team’s) passion to try changing that by offering people a LifeChanging Holiday to rejuvenate, recuperate & to revitalize their soul…
  • Exposure: We believe that one of the keys to change & growth is exposure to new things. This encourages one to make life-changing decisions and if this is followed by accountable actions, tomorrow‘s success is almost guaranteed! We make sure you get enough exposure to new things that will inspire your soul! We are very sensitive in this regard and your preferences are taking in the highest consideration.
  • Experience: LifeChanging Holidays’ emphasis is not merely on extravagant and impressive accommodation, but more on a LifeChanging experience within a beautiful & peaceful setting…
  • Grading: LifeChanging Holidays go that extra mile to dig for diamonds! We use hand-picked accommodation suppliers in our itineraries. We have spent many hours, days & months on research & site inspections (and still do!) to select the best of the best activities & accommodation that fit the LifeChanging Holidays’ Criteria
  • Destinations: Most Holiday Planners are only focusing on the traditional tourist attractions & destinations… LifeChanging Holidays is committed to organize a holiday-itinerary for our clients that takes them out of busy city life & introduce them to the ― Out & About treasures; uncovering some of the world’s best kept holiday secrets…
  • Creative: We may suggest ‘out of the ordinary’ accommodation-experiences, like: Staying in a Lighthouse, a Tree House, a Ox-Wagon, a Luxurious Indian Tent, a Guesthouse in a Township, a Houseboat, A Farm-stay, Accommodation in a Cave, In the Wild Bush, Island style stays or even experiencing sleeping in the open air… Please note that ALL venues are VERY carefully selected and your safety is of the highest priority. If, however, you just want to stay in a ‘normal’ hotel, we will book you in the best one available.
  • Competence: Some of the most successful business people will agree that paying for reliable advice is the deciding factor to their success. LCH offer our clients extensive industry experience & advice. Our Team also pride ourselves in exceptional organizing & administrative skills. This gives our clients tremendous peace of mind…
  • Giving: Part of LCH‘s profits support those who cannot support themselves (e.g. single parents & orphans). We also administrate (the process) & give to families/ couples/ individuals that seriously needs a LifeChanging Holiday, but cannot afford to finance it themselves. Click here to find out more…
  • Relationships: We value, honor & reward customer loyalty. Returning Clients always qualify for some kind of discount or incentive!
  • Connections: Additionally to our regular hand-picked services offered, we can also confidentially refer & direct our clients (with their written consent) to a ‘hand-picked’ team of Business – & Life couches & counselors who share our values…

Our creed is “Let HOPE arise!” and this is our vision and mission; that as you participate in ANY holiday that you’ve planned yourself or planned by us – that you will be filled with Hope and that you will come back refreshed and changed…

What a privilege it would be for us to be part of your journey… We invite you to explore our online office and to do business with us…

Yours in LifeChanging Holidays…
