Our Team

We are dedicated to making a positive impact on the communities in which we travel.  Thus we are connected with community-based organisations, which we encourage our guests to visit.  These organisations must fulfil the criteria of being established, managed and supported by local people so we can be assured our support directly aids those intended.  Read the story of OTA here!

Francis

Francis has worked in overlanding in Eastern and Southern Africa since 2000, and lived in Kenya all his life.  His knowledge of the region is extensive in the routes travelled, places visited and cultures encountered.  He loves sharing his knowledge and you can be assured of learning much about Africa travelling with him.  His sense of humour and calm demeanour gives you the confidence that you are in safe hands and his wealth of experience is invaluable on the road.

Tracey

Tracey started travelling in 2002, working and backpacking her way through the USA and Europe.  After working as an Analyst with the Department of Defence in Australia for four years and studying a Masters degree, a sharp career turn led her to the tourism industry. She began leading tours on the Trans-Mongolian and Trans-Siberian Railways and along the Silk Road, travelling extensively through Central Asia (the "Stans"), Russia, Mongolia and China.  Since 2010, she has been in Africa travelling independently and leading tours throughout Eastern and Southern Africa.  She loves to travel and is passionate about encouraging others to travel.

We had 2 weeks for Tanzania and Kenya. We came in contact with Tracey and Francis via a local guide that knew Francis. We wanted a custom made itinerary for these 2 weeks to see the Serengeti National Park and a 3 days Mt. Meru Hike. Tracey fixed this for us in no time. Via email we kept in great contact about the status. 

 

Nothing is a problem with Tracey and Francis. They are very flexible. If we wanted something changed, they tried their best to help us and fixed it. 

 

In the end they brought us to Nairobi where we had 3 days to explore the capitol of Kenya, which was great. They are service oriented, so give them a shot!!
