Jenieen van den Heever, Director of Group Operations
Born and Bred
Jenieen was born and bred in George, South Africa. She then went on to study a degree in Tourism Management and received her Diploma in Human Resource Management and joined Ker & Downey® Africa in 2017.
Highlight of her time at Ker & Downey® Africa
Jenieen’s greatest achievement at the company was when her sales team exceeded their sales targets and received 5-star ratings for every trip they concluded.
Jenieen’s expertise lies in Southern Africa – she has seen most of the Southern Africa destinations and whilst she does not favour one African destination over the other, the South is where her heart is and where she has traveled to most.
Jenieen’s favourite destination in Africa
Naming one is impossible! Namibia – Erindi Game Reserve – for its amazing elephant sightings. Botswana – Machaba Camp – for its stunning location and the great staff members. Zambia/Zimbabwe – seeing the Victoria Falls from both sides and visiting Elephant Camp.
