Hartley's Swirl Icon


Hartley’s journey began back in 1820 when Henry Hartley stepped foot on African soil for the first time. Some believe during his explorations he was the first to discover Victoria Falls. At Hartley’s we continue to embody Henry’s legacy in our pioneering spirits and exploratory nature. As a natural extension of our exploratory minds and wondering hearts, we subsequently discovered a whole new world; under the water. Through our love for travel we continue to share your vision as we introduce you to the many hidden treasures of the ocean that have captured our hearts. We believe in ensuring that your journey is a remarkable one, from our first contact, to the moment you arrive home. Over 70% of our business is repeat and referral – let us show you why
