Sales Consultant

Okavango Delta Explorations is a specialist tour operator providing tailormade itineraries based on expert knowledge of this complex safari destination. While the Okavango is at the heart of everything we do, most itineraries will also include other destinations in the region.

On the cusp of launching a second brand covering all of ‘Safari Africa’ we are looking for an experienced sales consultant to join us in this next exciting chapter.

This is a varied and interesting role. You will primarily be focused on sales; managing new enquiries and existing bookings. However, we are a small team and you will also be expected to assist in most aspects of the business such as marketing and website updates.

This is a remote role, working to Botswana or UK office hours so candidates will ideally be based within those time zones. The ideal candidate will be able to visit Maun, Cape Town, or London during the training period.

We offer a competitive salary, depending on experience, plus a good bonus scheme.

What we are looking for:

Minimum 2 years sales experience in African travel, including Botswana, with a solid understanding of the sales process.

Expert knowledge of the Okavango Delta and Botswana is essential. The ideal candidate will also have experience of sales in East Africa.

Excellent communication skills – written and verbal.

Previous experience of delivering high levels of customer service

Excellent attention to detail

A genuine passion for African travel and safari (beyond the luxury!) and an ability to convey this enthusiasm and knowledge to clients on sales calls.

An interest in the region and industry, demonstrating up to date knowledge of developments

Ability to work with urgency and accuracy

Mathematically literate.

A creative mind to think outside the box when crafting safaris and in problem-solving.

Ability to think quickly on your feet and calmly resolve problems as they arise.

Can-do attitude and ability to work independently with discipline

Good organisation & time management skills

IT – should be confident with all basic Microsoft skills.


Please send your CV and a short cover letter to Louise FitzGerald [email protected]
