Nadia Eckhardt was born in South Africa, resides in Seattle today, but still calls beautiful Cape Town "home." She spent much of her youth enjoying the outdoors with her family: hiking up Table Mountain, swimming, diving, and exploring the southern tip of Africa. She started her travel career in the early 80’s cruising the Indian Ocean islands, and scuba diving and birding in the Seychelles and Madagascar. Since then, Nadia has worked extensively at sea and on land as Cruise Director and Tour Leader and has traveled to over 125 countries worldwide on all seven continents. She is well-versed in many adventure destinations such as Antarctica, the North Pole and Greenland, Central and South America.
With her extensive knowledge and travel experience on the African continent, Nadia is not only a veteran safari specialist/tour leader but one of the world's best Africa safari planners. Her passion for Africa, together with her expertise and firsthand experience, ensure you will have the African adventure of a lifetime.
