Alex Teixeira: Sales Europe

Alex Teixeira #1
Alex Teixeira #2

Equally at home in a European boardroom and the African bush, Alex is a larger-than-life safari guide and sales agent who delights in sharing his deep appreciation and knowledge of the sub-continent.

Fluent in Afrikaans, Dutch, English, French and German, Alex is our multilingual, multinational “guy in Europe” who is one half slick and sophisticated business consultant and the other half slick and sophisticated safari guide. Combining the two halves gives you an incredible asset to help you plan and arrange your great African adventure.

Born in Holland, where he now lives and operates, Alex (full name: Alexander Teixeira de Mattos) spent his formative years in Belgium and first tasted Africa’s wilderness back in the early 90s of the previous century during a sabbatical from full time study (astronomy and information technology).

Here, after a chance meeting with Danie, Alex swiftly converted himself into a first-class guide leading international guests on photographic safaris into the nether regions of Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. That first taste has turned into a lifelong love affair with the wild continent and an inexplicable soft spot for the old Land Rover Defender.

A big man with a big character and bucketloads of energy and featuring an unhealthy obsession with cheese, coffee and kudu biltong, we are lucky to have Alex as our European bannerman to share his enthusiasm for our corner of the world with you.

Alex’s top picks? The whole place really but if you have to nail it down, he recommends Damaraland in Namibia, Okavango and Chobe in Botswana and Matusadona (Kariba) in Zimbabwe and of course Victoria Falls. So… the whole place really.
