With a 20 year background in the financial sector, Sophie Motsogi switched careers to run JMT Tours alongside her beloved late husband Joe. Starting in 1997, the couple worked together to run one of Joburg’s best known tour operating companies.
JMT Tours & Safaris was established in 1997 and is an accredited tour operator boasting a host of notable repeat clients. Their passion for tourism and people skills won us several service excellence awards including Gauteng semi-finalist of ETEYA Awards and South African Tourism Welcome Awards runner up. With the opening of the tourism industry as lockdown restrictions were removed, Sophie has been at the helm of ramping up operations and welcoming large groups to our shores adding to much needed employment in the sector and foot traffic and revenue to places of interest and service providers.
