Established in 2005, the Spotted Owl finally nested – after years working for large corporates such as Suzuki South Africa, Sea World (now uShaka marine) and The Witness, South Africa’s oldest daily newspaper, Spotted Owl Event and Promotions found a home in the Tala Valley in Camperdown KwaZulu Natal.
Conveniently situated between both Durban and Pietermaritzburg we offer a comprehensive and complete service to our clients. We deliver on our promises and go the extra mile to make sure that we exceed your expectations.
