Sanibonani, Ni hao, Hello, Asalam o alikum, Bonjour, Namaste, Sawasdi Ka, G’day, Jambo!!
Greetings, from around the world
My name is Tanya, I am originally from South Africa and currently one of many thousands of expats spread across the globe. I have lived in South Africa, Australia, Singapore, England and now currently based in Dubai. If you are anything like me, then you must be itching to get back out there…
I am an experienced Travel consultant with a keen sense of adventure, an eye for detail, a taste for Asia and an undying love for Africa.
For as long as I can remember, my dream has been to work in hospitality and tourism. I knew from a young age that I wanted to travel. Growing up, our family holidays were spent travelling around South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique, Mauritius and Thailand
When I graduated from high school, I spent a year backpacking around Australia, Vanuatu and New Zealand. I loved the freedom and independence of not knowing where the next few days, weeks or months would take me. Waking up and exploring new destinations, meeting people from all walks of life, submersing myself in the various activities and cultures that each country had to offer.
I have worked in Boutique hotels and luxury, top-end Safari Lodges in and around the Kruger National Park in South Africa. I spent 8 years working for an inbound Tour Operator specializing in luxury travel to Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean before my family and I left South Africa.
Since our expat journey began, we have travelled to over 35 different countries. I have spent hours researching each destination and carefully planning every step of each journey. There are still many countries on my list, and I am so excited to start considering moving around again and planning our next experiences.
The world is a very different place from what it was pre-covid. Members of the travel and tourism industry, worldwide, are doing everything they can to prepare for your safety and enjoyment. I understand and appreciate the importance of time, money and family and how these, amongst many other considerations, need to be incorporated into your journey. The extra precautions, questions and requirements you may have will be part of the “new normal” as we delve back into exploring future travel experiences. I am here and ready to help you, every step of the way.
I cannot wait to help you with your travel experience dreams.
