ElementZ Travel offers luxury ecotourism journeys and wildlife conservation experiences in Africa. Founder and CEO Mr Sandor Weyers is a South African who has great respect for wildlife.

He said that ElementZ Travel sets itself apart in terms of support for ecotourism and conservation. “For example, journeys are arranged in a way in order to minimise the impact to the environment and to ensure that local communities benefit,” he said.

On the choice of Hong Kong, Mr Weyers said, “We see an increasing demand coming from environmentally conscious high net worth individuals (HNWIs) across Asia, especially from Hong Kong and Mainland China who aspire for experiential travel experiences and journeys that ‘give back’. Hong Kong is close to the Mainland with unrivalled access to these HNWIs in the region.”

He added, “The ease of establishing a business and the business-friendly environment in Hong Kong adds another appeal for us to set up here.”

Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Dr Jimmy Chiang said, “Hong Kong’s fast-paced lifestyle gives rise to a genuine demand for luxury travel. The opening of ElementZ Travel in Hong Kong opens up new choices of travel experiences to local and regional customers. We wish ElementZ Travel every success in Hong Kong and beyond.”
