Hello! I’m Antonio, or Anthony to my friends.

I was born in 1988, and ever since I took my first steps on this Earth, I have loved to travel. In fact, I’ve turned my passion for travel into a profession! I can say that I’ve centered my entire life around travel and people, constantly seeking new exciting projects and ideas that would help me in the greatest challenge: “working while having fun and understanding and satisfying the needs of my clients.” After 15 years of experience, I’ve found the right formula, and today I can create itineraries that are true and unique experiences, tailored to each client.

I have various passions, including photography, in addition to travel. Over the course of my career, I’ve gained solid experience as a tour guide, as well as direct and in-depth knowledge of destinations such as the United States, the Indian Ocean, Oman & the United Arab Emirates, and of course, South Africa & Namibia.

Today, I can proudly say that I am very happy to have built this company with Maria Chiara and to have the support of a trusted and qualified team, which is like family to me!

I always say to our #explorers: “discover your dreams, follow your heart’s desire.”

Hi, I’m Maria Chiara!
She has always been a lover of nature and animals. I dreamed of Africa since I was a child.

For many years, going to Africa was my secret dream, until I decided to follow that call and go and find out what was so magical and special there. Although I loved Africa even before knowing it, it was love at first sight. For more than 15 years now I have been spending months of my life in Namibia, my second home.

Africa has also been my muse for photography, which has become my greatest passion through which I try to capture moments of authentic wonder.

I have combined the love for the territory with the passion for photography to change my life and make possible the dream of those who see Africa as a distant and unreachable land.

Hello, I’m Antonio, but my friends call me Tony.

I recently joined the team consisting of Maria Chiara and Antonio. How did I end up here…? Thanks to a class dinner… talking with Maria Chiara, she managed to convey her passion for Africa, which she had turned into a profession.

Coming from very different backgrounds, this choice was truly difficult, precisely because it was a personal challenge.

Now, I happily belong to a team that combines professionalism, passion, and friendship.

I hope to accompany you in discovering “your Africa.”

My motto? “Love Africa, drive it!”
