Alexander Göttlicher 

Product Manager | Senior Africa Specialist   

Born and raised in the beautiful city of Vienna, I developed a passion for tourism and travel at an early age. I am a passionate traveler and have visited more than 60 countries around the world. 

I have worked in different positions from tour guide to tour operator for more than 30 years in some of the biggest tour operators in Austria and Africa. In the  last 14 years I have explored and lived in different countries in Africa. I enjoyed my time exploring and working  as a licensed tour guide and operator in South Africa for 5 years.  I also have lived in Ethiopia working as a tour product manager for an award winning tour company based in Addis Ababa. This gave me the chance to explore more of this  mysterious and beautiful country, Ethiopia and many Eastern African countries. 

For more than 30 years I have consulted,  designed tour programs and experiences for people from around the world. My happiest moments are always, when I develop a tour program that clients love and  return with smiling faces telling me that they had a wonderful experience. In each of our tailor-made tours, we always  strongly rely on our host community and local experts to create a memorable experience for our clients. 

I love meeting people and enjoy sharing about the beautiful places I have been and experiences I really enjoyed. I happily consult people and help them custom make an experience and make sure that is delivered.  In all the tours we operate we make sure it is run in a more responsible manner and I always make sure the environment and the host community is at the 

For over 14 years  now I have fallen in love with this magical continent, Africa. Since then I have been in love and never get tired of this beautiful continent.  I am sharing  my experience and knowledge  to travelers  to these amazing countries I specialize in for more than a decade. 


For the last 14 years, I had the chance to explore and experience many African countries. The more I explore and experience Africa, the more I understand how beautiful and diverse it is and my love grows. I have lived in beautiful Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for the last 8 years. From there I explored many of the less visited and amazing places in Ethiopia including the Dallol Depression, remote tribes of the Omo Valley, Simien Mountains and more. Recently I have had the chance to visit beautiful Uganda and this is where I am based now. I also have traveled to Kenya, Djibouti, Namibia, Mauritius and South Africa.

From an amazing photography safari to the remote tribes of the Omo Valley in Ethiopia to Gorilla Trekking in Uganda. From wildlife safari in Kenya and Tanzania to beach holidays in the Seychelles to Desert Expeditions in Djibouti and more.
