Gaby Pabst

Unconventional, Motivated & a Team Player

I am motivated by the daily challenges in our line of work to perfectly plan and execute Incentives, Events and tailormade Individual Travel in Africa. It gives me great pleasure to introduce my home country to clients and visitors alike during personal contacts. I know it will leave its mark.
After her tourism degree in Cape Town, Gaby gained invaluable international experience working for well-known tour operators in Europe for 5 years. Back in Cape Town she concentrated on Incentive Travel and Events Management. In this capacity she responsibly and successfully organized and led many corporate events, e.g. International Dealer Launch for the Porsche 911, BMW, Daimler, DBV Versicherung, E-Plus, Volkswagen, Tupperware, AUDI and Vodafone.

Elana Tong-Josephs

Nature & Animal Lover

I am fortunate to be working in the tourism industry since 2003. It is always motivating for me to know that I can make a difference to people’s perceptions of Africa. While travelling they discover that Africa and its people offer far more than expected! Our country is beautiful because of its diversity in culture, landscape and wildlife; and often I realize how privileged I am to have been born in this country and making that bit of a difference.
Elana was born and raised in Cape Town. After completing her Degree in Industrial Psychology, she continued her studies with a Postgraduate Diploma in Tourism and Leisure at the University of Cape Town. Following her studies she gained invaluable experience while working at local inbound tour operators in Cape Town.

Lauren Harris

Gourmet & Wine Enthusiast

I am one of those lucky people who can truly say that there is no place like home! There is just so much to explore and to experience in South Africa. The rich culture, the history and the fantastic people that shape the nation, the vast natural beauty and the unique wildlife make visiting South Africa and indeed Southern Africa as a whole, a once in a life time journey. It is no wonder that my aim at That’s Africa is to create a once in a lifetime experience for our clients so they too can get to know Southern Africa with such passion.
Lauren was born in Cape Town. She received her university degree in Tourism-Management in 2008. Following which, her career path took her to the marketing department at a local language school, to a client-focused Travel Agency and a local Destination Management Company for Incentive Travel and Events. She has however found her home in That’s Africa.

Joan Muller

Fitness Enthusiast and always on the move! Our Queen of the Calculator!

My name is Joan Elizabeth Muller and I was born and raised in the beautiful Western Cape. I completed my degree at the University of North West, majoring in accounting and economics. I am also a wife and mother of two interesting little people who teach me about life every single day.
I fell in love with South Africa after spending a week in the beautiful plains at Sabi Sands and the Kruger National Park. I had to see more of our beautiful land…and I continue to do so every year. I am so lucky to live in Cape Town with its infinite beauty and enjoy drinking wine and having a braai under the extraordinary presence of Table Mountain!
