Blue Zissou was established in 2016 by Pete Allsop and Gail Woods, a British Australian couple. The company was established in Mozambique and now has an Australian registered business based in Alice Springs

The company works with local communities, small tourism operators, NGOs and industry partners to build capacity to attract and service the needs of discerning travellers, along with specialised team building workshops, incentives and other activities tailored to the needs of corporate clients.

It’s very important to remember that Blue Zissou is not just another corporate player, our strength is in our passion and commitment to ensuring the very best experiences for visitors and the people who live in the destinations in which we operate. This commitment has earned the company international recognition.
