For me, Tourism plays an important role in the development of a country. To create wonderful and diverse programs for possible visitors as I am a Namibian and well traveled within and neighbouring countries. Most self-drive and private guided programs are tailored and here we can ,where possible, include culture, community, conservation as the revenue assists the loacal communities.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"As Namibia is very diverse, home to the oldest desert in the world, the tallest sand dunes, the game filled National Parks, and many unique cultures it is very hard to pinpoint specific places I prefers. They are all great and worth a visit. With the many activities on offer, each one is unique in their own way and adds to the adventure. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"After having traveled overseas and upon returning home I realised that Namibia had so much to offer fellow travelers from around the world and joined the tourism industry. I believe it is a more versatile work environment, which brings different opportunities into an everyday life. To embrance different possibilities, opinions, religions, customs and cultures are of interests to me. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"A city of endless possibilities, high energy, and great diversity, New York City had always been my unique experience. Coming from Africa, the fast paced city was something completely new. However it totally lived up to my expectations and I left with a heavy heart and lots of good memories. Honestly, there’s a lot to do in New York and no amount of time is enough to fully experience the city."
