Tour operator Mahlatini Luxury Travel, which opened its doors in Cape Town last year, continues to grow its representation in the city with the addition of three new recruits.

Ilaria Semprini-Sara has worked at a senior level within the tour operator sector for both an Italian specialist brand and a large corporate for over ten years, and will now be heading up the Italian-speaking division.

“Joining a long-established UK tour operator at this key milestone, as it looks to expand its footprint within Africa, was a unique opportunity that I had to explore,” said Semprini-Sara.

Adelle Bell has spent over a decade with a number of safari specialist tour operators and is joined by Steve Meinhold, who moves from his role as Senior Travel Consultant at Rhino Africa where he has been for the past five years.

Together, the three new team members bring almost 50 years’ of experience in the African travel industry.

Co-founder and Director of Sales of Mahlatini Luxury Travel, Greg Fox, says: “Our clients have always appreciated our specialist, first-hand knowledge; they love working with travel experts living on African soil to create their bespoke travel itineraries. A Cape Town base affords direct access to our trusted supplier network, ensuring we deliver the absolute best travel experiences for our clients.”
