Felix has over 17 years experience designing trips to Africa and has travelled to many far-flung regions in the continent; visiting at least twice a year since his career began.

Raised in South Africa, Matt has travelled around Southern and East Africa from childhood. He’s been on safari over 50 times all over the African continent and is extremely passionate about Africa’s wildlife and wild places.

True Travel has done it again. Matt helped plan and produced an amazing Tanzanian adventure. It was truly a wonderful holiday which ran smoothly and all the lodges and camps were spectacular as promised.
