I have 17 years’ experience in the travel and tourism industry and had the privilege to work both locally and abroad. I lived and worked in Cape Town, Gauteng and Dubai. As the General Manager of Tripos Travel, I am privileged to work with some very experienced and passionate people who are dedicated to ensuring that each client’s needs are met or exceeded. I am also privileged to have travelled extensively and the old adage that there is no better education than travel, rings true. It is also true that there is no better way to have fun and experience a new adventure! My love for travel is what led me to a career in helping other people experience the joys of exploring new places and cultures. It is something I look forward to everyday.

Mark Cromhout | Operations Manager

My love for travel is what motivated me to join the industry 23 years ago. I have a passion for exploring new places and experiencing new destinations. My bucket list is half completed already, managing to tick off 43 countries and 30 of the 50 States in America so far! I focussed on Leisure travel at 1st, sending people to all the places I wanted to see and some that I had already visited. I now do a balance between corporate and leisure bookings. I enjoy working with clients and fellow staff members to ensure a great travel experience is had by all. In addition to consulting, I am also the Operations Manager at Tripos Travel where I lead our team of highly trained and experienced travel professionals to provide an unforgettable experience to our clients. Away from work, I am an outdoors lover and enjoy hiking and mountain climbing whenever I get the chance. I also enjoy running most weekends and completed a few road races!

Ingrid Carelse | Tours Manager

I am married with 2 wonderful children. I have been part of the Tripos family since 1997. My journey at Tripos Travel started at Reception and in 1999, I completed my Galileo course and assisted with issuing of domestic tickets. A year later, an opportunity opened in the Inbound Tours division, which I was happy to accept. I have been enjoying my time here ever since. The Tours division primarily served the incoming French and UK markets. I gradually started developing my own programmes for clients and progressed to manage the day to day running of the office. Today we service clients from all over the world, tailor making packages to meet their needs. In 2008 we started promoting and selling travel packages to the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, the 4th biggest music festival in the world & the largest in Africa. I always enjoy return business and this gives me a sense of satisfaction that my services rendered have met or exceeded my clients’ expectations. This client satisfaction is what keeps me motivated in my job.

Janet van Tubbergh | Senior Consultant

I have been working in the industry since 1999.  I started off in Youth Travel, then onto Leisure and now I concentrate largely on corporate travel. At Tripos Travel I manage one of the company’s biggest accounts as well as other medium sized corporate accounts. I also have some leisure clients that have been with me some since I started in Travel.  I have been lucky enough to travel overseas extensively. I have been to America, the Caribbean, The Far East and other parts of Africa. I was privileged to live in London for 2½ years and I travelled often to other parts of Europe from there.  The reason I decided to choose travel as my career, is because I LOVE everything associated with travel and make a point of travelling regularly.  The nice part about this career in leisure travel is helping people make their dreams come true! Outside of travel I am very much a boere meisie. I love Afrikaans music and going to live shows that showcase Afrikaans music.  Like all South Africans, I like a good braai with good friends, and rugby or cricket on the side.
