Linda Tekere

Linda’s love for the travel industry started when she received a prestigious scholarship to study Travel & Tourism at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Cape Town. As she’d always wanted to travel around the world and learn first-hand about new cultures, it was a massive milestone for her.

During her tertiary studies, Linda worked in the hospitality industry where she dealt directly with clients and gained hands-on experience. And so, her passion for the travel industry was born. This experience piqued her interest to branch into a different sector of travel: to help create dream holidays and help put together unforgettable travel experiences for clients.

She joined Giltedge DMC as an administrative consultant and enjoyed learning from an experienced team, giving her invaluable mentorship. She was then promoted to Junior Groups Consultant. Nowadays she’s an Africa Travel Expert at Giltedge Africa, continuing to develop her skills and striving to create memorable holidays that exceed every client’s expectation.
