Who we are

If you're wondering who we are, let me explain what we are:


We are specialists with almost two decades of experience in organizing and guiding trips through Africa, with a local perspective and adventure in comfort.

We have traveled hundreds of thousands of km through these magical lands and we want to accompany you in the planning and development of your African experience.

We are a perfect combination of Spaniards and Africans from different countries. We have been dedicated to tourism for more than 20 years and we have all been guides in our beginnings, which gives us a very realistic understanding of the destinations we now sell.

Over the years we have been able to create a network of contacts that is priceless: we have friends in all the countries in which we create itineraries, and we want our trips to provide the greatest local benefit and the least environmental impact. We look for the best suppliers, since we know them first-hand, and we also have on board in our team the invaluable presence of professionals and friends who were born and raised in the countries that now welcome us. What better way to understand a country and its idiosyncrasies?

our team

Nuria Rovira


I have a degree in Law from the University of Barcelona, but I soon realized that I wanted to live a different life, more in line with my personality. After living in Costa Rica for a few years, I decided to embark on my African adventure. I started as a guide and finally created my own agency. I have been dedicated to tourism in Africa for about 12 years and am part of the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa. I am passionate about my work, and I am very proud of the team we have created at Rumbo Africa. I am based in South Africa.

Lana is originally from Namibia. She grew up in an farm in the Kalahari, and after studying Tourism in South Africa, she moved into a small town on the Skeleton Coast called Henties Bay.

Like the rest of the Rumbo team, she is passionate about what she does, and she has been a guide around her beloved Namibia for more than a decade.
