The Uniworld Story

 In 2004, Uniworld was acquired by The Travel Corporation (TTC), an international travel group founded by Stanley Tollman. TTC has more than 30 top brands, including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, and Contiki, as well as Red Carnation Hotels, a renowned collection of four- and five-star luxury properties. 

The renowned Red Carnation Hotel Collection was founded in the early 1980s by Beatrice Tollman, who has many years of experience as a chef, cookbook author, and hotelier in South Africa, Europe, and the US. The family-run business now spans four generations—including her husband Stanley and three children—and owns and operates 17 boutique properties in five countries. She began her career intending to become a teacher, though a school trip to Europe presented her with a different vision. It was then that her palate was first piqued, a hunger for fine cuisine was born, and an idea was sparked: to combine exquisite gastronomy with enchanting world travels. A few years later, Bea caught the eye of a distinguished South African hotelier, Stanley Tollman, a man with a heart for hospitality and a red carnation nestled in his lapel. They would later go on to build the world-renowned luxury brand, Red Carnation Hotels. But Bea had even bigger dreams, dreams on the water, which eventually leading her to acquire Uniworld River Cruises in 2004.
