Travel is my life and Africa my passion!!!

Born in Congo ... raised both in Congo and Rwanda, the adventure of travelling in Africa was always on my doorstep. Right after graduating from a MBA in Brussels, I started directly in the travel industry.

Starting in Corporate Travel back in 1991 with Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) before moving to Managing CWT's Meetings & Incentives Department in Brussels as from 1993. In 1997, I migrated to South Africa and set up 6:30 Gondwana, an incoming tour operator with offices in Cape Town which I ran for 10 years with a focus both on designing tailor made itineraries for individual clients and for incentive travel. I relocated to Europe in 2007, and created the tour operator Quinoa.

... but as the saying goes ... Africa never lets you go!!!

So here I am back with one foot in Africa, dedicating energy to marketing and promoting East and Southern Africa to the rest of the world!

The list of countries I visited is long as I clocked more than 100 around the world!!! Talking about Africa, except for Angola, both Eastern and Southern Africa have very little secrets for me ... I have traveled extensively to all countries from Ethiopia to Cape Town, visiting the most remote corners of each.

To the question about my preferred country ... I can only answer that each region, each country has its own beauty. All offer great holiday options and what makes the difference is perhaps the experiential rich approach that we can give to our clients' itineraries in Africa.

On a personal note, nature and wildlife rank top with me and I always get the same excitement whenever we spot something new in the bush ... never "blasé" ... always the same great kick when being a witness to the marvels of nature. As in personal favorites, I would say walking and canoeing safaris! Or cruising lake Kariba on a houseboat. And don't forget a trekking visit to the gorillas and chimpanzees which should be on everyone's bucket list.

One's karma can not be complete without a visit to Africa ... real Africa!!!
