About Us

We offer a professional service and our itineraries are tailor-made for each client.

How did we start?
“A spirit for adventure, new and exciting destinations, a love for travel and the mystique of South America led to the small beginnings of Latin American Travel. LAT was formed, developed and is still owned by Elizabeth Neethling.”

“My husband and I wanted to go on a skiing holiday in the Andes Mountains for many years and finally decided to go in 2004. We had difficulty in finding a company in South Africa offering in depth detail of skiing in the Andes Mountains. After many hours of research, we compiled our own itinerary and booked our first adventure ski holiday to Argentina in August 2004.”

Arriving back from an unforgettable holiday experience, Liezl Neethling officially launched Latin American Travel (later renamed LAT Travel) in September 2004.

“My previous training and experience in the travel industry was beneficial in preparing our trip and compiling our itinerary. South America offers incredible experiences and is a unique, niche market.”

LAT Travel is a family, privately owned business and we strive to provide the best service and reliability with a personal touch to each one of our clients.

SINCE 2004

The next few years the company expanded beyond expectations and became a specialist in skiing packages to the Andes Mountains, as well as other destinations within Argentina and neighbouring countries. We now sell most of the South American countries and our itineraries are comprehensive covering vast distances and incredible experiences.

Since 2014 we have expanded our business to include other special destinations and Adventure Reunion, Eco Seychelles and French Alp Skiing became part of our growing business as a destination specialist offering exclusive and diverse experiences.
