About Us

Changing Our Focus. Changing The World.

We are two women who were so fortunate to have met across tables in faraway destinations. It is our hope that by inviting you to our table, we will not just be building a better travel community, but a better global community. Conversations inspire, uplift and build hope. Discovering paths anew we will be engaging in the beauty and cultures around us while celebrating the laughter and the bonds between us.

Born from a crisis,
filled with hope.

CAZAVIA intends to change the travel mindset. As a signatory of The Future of Tourism Coalition we pledge to travel with the intention to preserve and regenerate destinations both environmentally and culturally.

We’re In It Together.

We have aligned with partners and organizations globally who have set themselves apart by committing to a better future.


The Visionaries

Jill Hurd – Los Angeles

Jill started her career in travel with an emphasis on entertainment travel for film and television. She started her own company, JD Consulting, as a referral-only company. She built a successful business handling production travel, moving hundreds of people throughout the world. In time, Jill broadened her business to include travel coordination for leading graphic designers and architects, working on projects requiring precise and efficient travel coordination.

Germaine van den Berg – Johannesburg

Germaine’s extensive career in the travel and tourism industry in South Africa has sported many roles. She began with American Express Travel. She then joined the Southern Sun and Holiday Inn Hotel Group – a chain of four and five-star hotels in South Africa. A few years later saw her circling back to American Express Travel in the role of Head - Product Development and Marketing. After a lengthy career in corporate South Africa, she decided to venture out on her own and formed Travel Logic. The company, which has been in existence for over 15 years, provides a bespoke leisure travel service to discerning clients and a business travel management solution to small and medium sized corporations.
