Today I am a certified trekking guide and tour operator, organizing hiking, trekking and adventure activities in Georgia.

I also came to the realisation that offering cookie-cutter itineraries lacking individuality was not the way I want anyone to encounter Africa,be it on a first-time trip or one of many. My main vision when Traversing Africa was conceived was that I wanted to be an architect in providing customised, personal, gratifying and life-enriching journeys to Africa and beyond to those who desire the same. I am passionate about responsible and sustainable tourism and strive to make a positive impact in the world through deeper and meaningful travel experiences.
