Janine was born and bred in Namibia. She is married to Andre and they have two sons. Janine and Andre both share a deep passion for Africa and have always known that this was where their heart yearned to be. Despite having had the opportunity to travel extensively across the globe they chose to return to their deeply-rooted heritage in Namibia time and time again.
It is this deep love for all things African that inspired Janine to pursue a career in tourism and marketing. Janine has had more than 25 years of experience in the tourism industry and her portfolio spans across everything from marketing, public relations, lodge operations and management, international promotional activities and attendance of tourism trade fairs and road shows. She brings with her a unique combination of professionalism combined with a special affinity and deep care for the individual. Janine has the distinct ability to instantly grasp the essence of your brand’s identity and is able to bring it to life creatively, both visually and through specific experiences that can be offered at your lodge.
She brings with her a global network of influential contacts, and a passion for people and tourism. Her strengths lie specifically in managing client relationships and networking.
Some of her past clients have included GocheGanas Wellness Village, Budget Rent A Car Namibia, Venture Media (a Namibian publishing house with a global footprint), various smaller luxury lodges and she has also successfully managed her own tourism marketing company in Namibia.
