About us Debby



Meet Debby, our newest (or perhaps we should say returning) sales consultant! Debby spent a few years working at a dive resort, but her passion for Africa couldn’t be contained. Sharing the wonders of the African bush with international divers eventually led her back to JENMAN African Safaris. Debby is thrilled to be back, doing what she loves – planning incredible adventures and helping others experience the magic of Africa.

Background and Expertise

Born and raised in South Africa by wildlife-loving parents, Debby’s love for Africa bloomed during childhood visits to many different parks and reserves. Her passion extended to the ocean, leading her to become a NAUI Divemaster in 1995 and pursue a career in Sodwana Bay. This wonderful part of South Africa, Sodwana Bay, offers a unique combination: world-class scuba diving on coral reefs and access to Big 5 game reserves, all within driving distance. Working with her husband, they both became PADI Open Water Instructors in 1996, working in Egypt on the Sinai Peninsula. Here, they lived in the small village of Dahab and experienced the gorgeous diving in the Red Sea while working at local Dive Centres.

In September 1997, Debby decided to head back to South Africa. On her way back, she travelled through Africa. This trip truly opened her eyes and heart to the beauty, and the fascinatingly diverse cultures, across this incredible continent.

Back in South Africa, Debby transitioned from dive resort management to sales and marketing, eventually joining JENMAN African Safaris in 2010. There, she shared her expertise with travel agents, crafting unforgettable familiarization trips. Returning to the dive resort in 2017, Debby found herself captivated by the opportunity to introduce international divers to the wonders of the African bush. This has led her back to JENMAN African Safaris and today she works as a sales consultant, doing what she loves – planning and helping others experience this incredible continent called Africa!
