HI, I’M ANDRÉ.

Born and raised in Zimbabwe, I began my career as a safari guide and earned the prestigious “Zimbabwe Guide of the Year.” After 10 years guiding and managing camps, I moved to the USA and completed my business degree. Leveraging my relationships, knowledge, and understanding of Africa, I worked as a senior sales consultant and sales manager for two very well-established companies. For the past several years at Alluring Africa, I really enjoy using my vast experience, humor, and love of Africa to design extraordinary, memorable, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

 

 

I’VE VISITED:

Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, Rwanda, England, Scotland, France, Australia, Canada, Thailand

MY EXPERTISE:

I take great pride in planning romantic honeymoons, planning family escapades, adventure experiences, and long, experiential trips through Africa. I’ve always subscribed to the saying, “An experience shared is an experience doubled!” My otherworldly talents include writing humorous poems about everyone in our office and competing in mountain bike races.

WHY I LOVE DESIGNING TRIPS:

I love designing trips because it is the most satisfying experience to have folks come back from Africa, already planning their next trip. Africa is the best kept secret it the whole world.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL MOMENT:

I dove into the deep, dark Zambezi River to retrieve my rifle, and swam into something that made me never do it again. I never retrieved my rifle…and the full story can only be told around the campfire in Africa.

MY FAVORITE QUOTE:

Zimbabwe Shona proverb: “Those that have grazed at one anthill have become acquainted.”
Meaning: People who share an experience are united by it forever.

What André’s Clients Say

Alluring Africa and our private travel designer, Andre Steynberg, are the best in the business without a doubt! Their level of expertise, attention to every detail, and Andre’s enthusiasm and knowledge of Africa cannot be matched. We recently returned from Zambia and Zimbabwe (Andre’s birthplace) and have already begun to plan our next safari. An incredible trip…our tented camps were amazing, our guides were truly brilliant. We saw so many different species of animals and learned so much…our love of Africa just continues to grow! Two years ago, Andre planned our safari to Botswana (the Okavango Delta) and Rwanda for gorilla trekking and we knew then that Alluring Africa and Andre will always be number one for us!
