He stressed the company's aim to "strengthen its presence and relationships within the capital by providing customers easier access and options closer to home".

"Kanoo Travel offers an abundance of destinations. There is something for everyone, be it pastoral pursuits, business, adventure or the appeals of urban life," he said.

Kanoo Travel's new office is manned by qualified IATA-trained staff.

Leisure products on offer include cruise itineraries, weddings and honeymoon packages, ski and adventure travel trips, city and beach breaks and organised tours, as well eco-tourism holidays.

The new outlet also houses a dedicated Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions (MICE) department.
