Senior Travel Consultant

Janine joined Giltedge Africa in September 2017 and is Cape Town born and bred. After school, she got a degree in Travel and Tourism and then worked for a French Tour Operator for 14 years specialising in FIT and Series Tours. It’s her passion to make travellers’ dream holidays come true! She says, “Knowing that someone enjoyed their trip because of the itinerary that I put together for them puts a big smile on my face.”

In her free time, Janine enjoys travelling and spending time outdoors – especially sunny days on Cape Town’s beautiful beaches. Spending time with her family is important and she loves organising family trips. With three kids, they always keep her on her toes!

Her favourite destination, so far, was the Kruger National Park especially the thrilling 4×4 game drives.
