Kira Sachs

Senior Travel Consultant

Kira joined Giltedge in 2018 after almost 16 years in the travel industry. She spent eight years in Sydney, Australia. Back in Africa, she’s travelled extensively around Southern Africa including Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Madagascar and Kenya, to name a few.

Kira has always specialised in creating magical and life-changing African adventures.

When she is not at work, she’s walking her dogs on a magnificent beach in Cape Town, surfing, exploring local markets, spending time with her family and escaping the Mother City on a weekend away.

She dreams of seeing the Northern Lights one day.

Her message? “Be aware: that Africa travel bug is highly contagious and will leave you wanting to return, again and again”.
