Reservations Frontline was established in 1994 to accommodate the demand for tourism to Zimbabwe. At the time, the target market was specifically at the self-drive client who wished to make use of Kariba Ferries, experience the natures of Zimbabwe in their National Parks as well as accommodation in Zimbabwe and enjoying the houseboat experience on the lake. Since then Reservations Frontline has grown to become a Destination Management, Booking Office and Travel Marketing Company. We are the official South African representation, sales and booking office for Kariba Ferries and Matobo Hills Lodge. We also market Return to Eden houseboat and Sanjika vehicle barge.
Our business is built on three pillars, a foundation that has allowed our business to grow and flourish for almost 20 years.

Rina had extensive knowledge in South Africa as a destination with specific emphasis on Zimbabwe, the Drakensberg and the Transkei (as it was previously known as) and was the central booking office for many establishments.
