Jenman African Safaris Announces New General Manager: Johann Barnard

With light at the end of the travel tunnel, Jenman African Safaris would like to shine their own light on an extremely dedicated and passionate individual; Johann Barnard.

From starting as Product Manager then moving to Head of Product, Johann has poured commitment and passion, along with many bottles of red wine, into his love of travel. CEO Katja Quasdorf and MD Garth Jenman are honoured to announce an additional promotion within Johann’s career - to General Manager.

With the decision being made in 2019, and Covid hitting before the promotion was declared, this exciting change within the company has remained behind the scenes. However, Johann transitioned to the position with a quiet grace, accepting the momentary lack of celebration of this well deserved achievement in his career. Stepping in at such a turbulent time took courage - manning the helm while the travel ship needed to weather uncertain storms. Nevertheless, Johann exuded confidence, confronting the strong winds. 

The whole team at Jenman African Safaris would like to thank Johann for his consistent and courageous perspective, reflected in the staff morale and commitment to the brand.
