At Medical Tourism SA, our goal is to enable people from all over the world to take advantage of the outstanding medical care available in South Africa at highly affordable prices. Through our comprehensive medical tourism services, we strive to make every aspect of your trip to South Africa as comfortable, safe and rewarding as possible.

Our Story
The original idea to start Medical Tourism SA first came about when founder Faith Cartwright noticed that many of the guests making bookings at her popular hospitality businesses (including an events management company and self-catering guest cottage) had chosen to visit the country mainly to undergo a medical procedure.

This observation, combined with Faith’s experience in facilitating travel to South Africa for corporate guests in the past, sparked an interesting idea – what if medical tourists like these could be given access to private medical care, have their accommodation and travel needs taken care of, and plan safaris and other tourist excursions, all through the same service provider? Being based in Cape Town would also give clients the added advantage of a dedicated team of staff on the ground to source and secure the best and newest options, and to provide assistance to clients at all times before, during, and after their procedures.

The convenience, cost-effectiveness, and all-inclusive nature of this arrangement would definitely take a lot of the stress and effort out of managing all the different aspects of their medical travels. The desire to offer these benefits and provide a boost to the local medical tourism market encouraged Faith to launch Medical Tourism SA, and the company has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Cost advantage
The best part of using one service provider to cater for all your medical travel needs is that the many different aspects involved, from accommodation to the procedure itself, can all be factored into the same price. For instance, many popular ‘surgeon and safari’ packages include consultation, surgery, one-on-one physical therapy, a spa visit, a safari tour and even a personal assistant over the full course of your treatment recuperation in South Africa.

Clients can choose to request quotes for separate aspects of the trip (i.e. accommodation, safari, or treatment), or opt for an all-inclusive package managed by Medical Tourism SA. This ensures total flexibility, allowing for packages to be moulded to suit each client’s requirements as well as their budget.

At Medical Tourism SA, we are able to offer you all of the above at highly discounted rates. By utilizing our extensive list of business contacts and trusted relationships, built up over years of experience in the hospitality industry, we are able to get the best possible corporate rates for all required services, and we pass these savings on to you. That means you get a customised package to suit your specific needs at a much lower price than if you were to book everything separately.

Quality advantage
South Africa is the market leader on the African continent for medical tourism, and is well renowned throughout the world for the quality of its medical services, as well as being a major player in the field of medical research. Tourists from all over Africa, Europe, the USA,and other parts of the world come to South Africa each year to take advantage of the skill, talent and experience of our cosmetic surgeons, dental professionals, fertility specialists, ophthalmologists and orthopaedic surgeons, among many others.Medical Tourism SA maintains a strong network of licensed and reputable medical providers that all have excellent track records in their areas of expertise.

We deal with each client on a personal, individual basis, assisting with transport, nursing, pre- and post-operational care, and everything in-between, including a bit of fun, sun, and relaxation following the procedure. After all, studies have shown that recuperating in a beautiful environment promotes healing – what better environment can one ask for than Cape Town?

When you partner with Medical Tourism SA, you are assured the highest levels of service together with exceptional care and attention to all your requirements, ensuring that you leave satisfied and rejuvenated.
