Walter and Melanie Kohrs – owners of Safari Online
African Travel Specialist Ilona graduated in Travel and Tourism in 1995 and credits her love of travel to her dad who made sure they travelled the length and breadth of South Africa as a family when she was growing up.
After having completed her studies in hotel management, followed by a career in aviation, African Travel Specialist Vaneshree stepped into the tourism industry and joined Safari Online.
African Travel Specialist Kim started her career in the tourism industry in 1998 & has worked in many different sectors of the business; she’s also travelled to many of Africa’s prime destinations.
African Travel Specialist Sabrina graduated in tourism in her native Italy & hasn’t stopped exploring Africa’s top destinations since! Her favourite? Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.
After enjoying an extensive career as a Southern Africa safari guide, Walter combined his lifelong love of nature with a Business Administration degree to establish Safari Online in 2005.
Handling the company’s admin & accounting, German-born Melanie has lived in Africa since the early 2000s & has travelled extensively throughout Southern Africa.
African Travel Specialist Karina has been in tourism since she graduated in the subject & has a deep love for African wildlife – no wonder she lists Botswana as her favourite destination.
