About Us

Similarly to a number of successful tech companies, we have come a long way from our humble beginnings.  Started in 2009 by two enthusiastic entrepreneurs armed only with their computers, a small basement and a healthy dose of passion, the business has gone from strength to strength to become a leading expert in the southern African tourism market; offering specialist services in destination marketing and travel, internet marketing and rich media generation.

Biggestleaf now employs passionate individuals and is based in Tokai, in an office that reflects our belief in a healthy work-life balance.  At the helm is Robert Bernatzeder, an experienced marketer, avid traveller and enthusiastic entrepreneur, who attests that going to work in the morning is something he looks forward to, as his business is also his favorite pastime.

At Biggestleaf we subscribe to a philosophy of organic growth, innovation, integrity and passion.  We believe in empowering individuals, building sustainable relationships and improving lives. It is due to our continued success operating under this philosophy that we are continuously looking for new and exciting opportunities to grow and expand, within our existing field and into new fields, leveraging off the resources and expertise that we have accumulated over the years.
