Meet Tamin Mengel, True Adventure South Africa Client Relationships Director

Tamin Mengel

Client Relationships Director

Tamin is a True Adventurer herself! She got hit by the travel bug at a young age when her family immigrated to the wilds of Sumatra, Indonesia. Tamin is a qualified teacher with over ten years of International teaching experience, which then led to Tamin leading adventure and service-based trips to over 40 schools worldwide.

Not only has Tamin travelled the world with many adventures under her belt, her biggest achievement yet has got to be circumnavigating Africa on her own for two years. So when it comes to understanding international immigration bureaucracies Tamin is your go-to girl. 

Tamin has taken her passion for teaching and making a difference in young adults’ lives very seriously and has achieved this by arranging thousands of adventure-based trips. She is a true believer in finding oneself through experiential learning and testing your limits through various challenges.

Tamin now resides in Australia on a new adventure – watch this space!
