Taf Chindove

I am a consultant for Salty.Travel and have always wanted to travel the world. Having been to most of Southern Africa, I am itching to share my travel experiences. This is my passion and nothing makes me happier than sending someone on a once in a lifetime trip that will leave them with beautiful memories that will last forever.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in South Africa and all the major tours and activities it has to offer; having grown up in Zimbabwe, Vic Falls is also one of my specialties; Botswana and Mauritius ."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I studied Hospitality Management, then worked a little in the timeshare industry as a Sales consultant. That's when I realized Travel and Tourism was my passion and as such I ended up branching completely into the travel industry."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I went on an Educational to Mauritius and loved every bit of it. The people were so warm and friendly, the food and wine was world class and I got to do so many fun activities. From snorkeling to swimming with the dolphins, this travel experience allowed me to tick off a number of bucket list experiences. Most of the island is unspoiled so I got in touch with nature. This was truly an experience I will never forget."
