About Us

My name is Andrea.

I am the main character at Authentic Africa Tours and Safaris. I have been working in the business for many years and bring to the table vast Africa-related experiences inside and outside of the travel industry.

My background as a veterinary professional brought me to Namibia more years ago than I want to admit. Having spent my childhood admiring Africa in TV shows and magazine articles, I was finally able to touch Africa’s soil, taste her air and marvel at her sunsets.

I fell in love.

The vast open spaces, the wildlife, and the people of Africa found their way into my heart, never to leave again.

I want you to feel the same.

I handpick the camps and lodges, the operators and the experiences I believe will leave an impression on you. I research the different areas extensively while visiting Africa as often as I can, always seeking to discover the best of Africa.
