Meet the Team

Namibia Tours and Safaris is a small family business and, like all families, we are growing at an alarming rate. A merry bunch of proud Namibians, we are eager to share our beautiful country with the rest of the world.

Danie Steyn

A keen photographer and experienced guide, Danie started Namibia Tours & Safaris in 1990 guiding private expeditions into the far-flung reaches of the country. Now he uses his vast and intimate knowledge of the region to put together amazing trips.

Bianca Gellert

Fire and ice, that's the story of Bianca's fascinating life so far. Born in Namibia, she moved to Iceland as a teenager and spent the next decade falling deeply in love with the place and its people.

Jennifer Timlin

Hailing from the small and quirky town of Omaruru, Ulrike is the essence of Namibia and a delightful member of our small and quirky team.

Chantelle Francis

Chantelle is a happy, outgoing, free-spirited adventure junkie. So she’s just like everyone else at Team NTS and, like the rest of us, she’s a dyed-in-the-wool Namibian thoroughbred flying the flag with pride.

Ashlee Maree

Ashlee Maree

With a fierce love for her family and a deep appreciation of her country, Ashlee is about as Namibian as the sand dunes around her home town of Swakopmund. And she’s fond of big fat capitals followed by at least three exclamations marks - another telltale Namibian trait.

Carlyn Von Wielligh

Carlyn Von Wielligh

Full of homegrown goodness, Carlyn grew up in Windhoek and moved to Swakopmund with her family as a teenager. She has lived here ever since, bar the occasional European interlude, and now with a family of her own, we are delighted to know she’ll be here for a long time to come.

Augustinus Gawiseb

Augustinus Gawiseb

With a smile as wide as his knowledge of the country, Augie is one of Namibia’s finest guides. As the many rave reviews suggest, he’s the difference between a fantastic holiday and the trip of a lifetime.

Son of the legendary nature-man, Steve Braine, Sean is a rising star of Namibia’s professional safari guides and one seriously good photographer.
