MEET THE TRIBE: KYVERNITIS TRAVEL, GREECE

Tell us who you are and what your business is.
I was born and raised in Athens and left Greece at the age of 22 to continue my postgraduate studies in London, where I worked for a couple of years before coming home to roost.
Possessed by the travel bug from a very young age, I found my calling upon my return to my hometown and started working as a Travel Designer. My passion for travelling got even bigger over the years and my quest was to discover new places and experiences and offer them to the rest of the world. Consumed by wanderlust, my heart is set all over the world and my luggage is always filled with pictures, experiences, words and music which will keep me blissful for a lifetime.
I follow the words of Jack Kerouac in one of my favorite books, On the Road:
“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.”
Who is your typical client travelling to Africa and what is their perception of the continent?
Our clients that request Africa are either honeymooners that seek the islands, families that want to go for a safari or more adventurous types of clients that either want to travel to the wonderful Namibia or just experience South Africa and journey across its dramatic landscapes. They want to experience the vibrant Cape Town and dazzling Cape Point, game drive in a private reserve bordering Kruger National Park and tour the jaw-dropping Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
What region of Africa and supplier products are you looking to build your knowledge on through attending We Are Africa 2016?
South Africa and Namibia are our top selling destinations in Africa. Zanzibar is an upcoming destination in which we recently have had many requests, while Mauritius and Seychelles are our top destination for honeymooners.
