From a childhood in Swakopmund to an Honours Degree in Teaching from Cape Tech and back to a position at her alma mater, Tessa spent her formative years nurturing the homebody inside her.
Phase 1 complete, Tessa then embarked on a tour of the globe that included 25 countries in 8 years. From Iceland up there to Holland in the middle and Korea across there, Tessa has taught her way around the world on a path that, surprise surprise, lead all the way back home.
Into the welcoming arms of Team NTS and we believe, at the risk of sounding conceited, therein lies the answer to her interminable conundrum.
Like most every Namibian, Tessa is fluent in English, German and Afrikaans and, like most every Namibian, Tessa loves the outdoors with camping in Damaraland, Spitzkoppe, Etosha et al ranking among her favourite in-country experiences. And of course she loves spending quality time in said locations with her much-adored family and friends.
Adventurous, composed, kind and gentle, Tessa is as diverse a personality as the country she calls home. And with more than a passing eye for detail, a boundless love for Africa’s wild places and a deep connection with her native land, she's the ideal fit for our marketing team. She works closely with our agents abroad and you'll likely get to meet her at the travel shows we attend. She loves selling Namibia and our special part of southern Africa, something she does with apparent ease, a pleasant and friendly demeanor and efficiency. She'll tell you it's a walk in the park to sell a country that sells itself. It's really that incredible, but then so is Tessa.
Our guides are exceptional human beings one and all. Their love of people, country, history, flora, fauna and a jolly good time is entirely contagious and their professionalism, expertise and trustworthiness will set your heart at ease from the moment you leave the arrivals terminal.meet our guides
