About the Touch Go Girls
Kristina and Candi founded Touch Go Travel in 2017. A combined passion for travel, tourism and the ever changing digital world sparked the idea of an easy-to-use travel website that makes it easy for clients to explore everything that Southern Africa has to offer. Travelling should be as easy as touch and go…
Founder & Managing Adventure Director
Kristina moved to Cape Town (South Africa) in early 2011. She grew up in Germany, where she discovered her passion for travelling – specifically backpacking and adventure trips – at a very young age. Her first adventures as a solo backpacker brought her to Australia, Israel, Thailand and pretty much all over Europe. In 2010 she started her “Project 2010”- a 1 year solo round-the-world-trip, where she explored South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, Malawi, Zanzibar and Zambia, followed by Nepal, Tibet and India. She finished off her trip travelling through every single country in South America. Her love for South Africa brought her back to Cape Town, and from here she is still exploring the world today.
Kristina also has a deep passion for the digital marketing and communication world and focused her career on this fast changing industry. Her vision for Touch Go Travel was to create an easy-to-use platform that enables travellers to create their own personalised itinerary with the click of one button.
In Kristina’s free time she can normally be found on her mountain bike, her stand up paddle board, a yoga studio or hiking all around the mountains. She is also constantly busy exploring and testing new activities for the Touch Go Adventure category!
Founder & Managing Luxury Director
From her very first job on a 3- month contract position at small boutique hotel, Candi knew she had found her niche in the travel world.
She's come a long way since then and worked for hotel groups such as Relais Hotels, African Hotels and Adventures, Hyatt and Sheraton, building up an impressive track record in travel sales and a wealth of industry knowledge along with it. Her extensive network across the tourism industry built the foundation for Touch Go Travel and set the stepping stones for the broad portfolio that the company represents.
Candi has travelled extensively around Southern Africa and calls herself an island girl with a deep passion for luxury travel. Needless to say that Candi has handpicked the accommodations and activities listed in the Luxury and Romance sections.
Booking & Customer Service Manager
Nicola is the organized woman on the ground in Germany. She is the first point of contact for Touch Go Travel’s german clients and makes sure that every itinerary is perfect, every hotel booked and that nothing comes in the way of that perfect trip.
She has also travelled all over South Africa and returns every year. Ideally twice.
Her extensive experience in customer service management combined with her love for South Africa led to the easy decision to join Touch Go Travel.
