After graduating from the American university of Paris and a year working for UNESCO I co-founded a non-profit Global Nomads Group www.gng.org and devoted 12 years of my life to cross cultural communication amongst young people around the world. Our intention at the lodge is to create an environment that truly gives our guests a home away from home feeling.
My cousin, Nikel, joined me from Germany right at the start and we partnered up to create the lodge. He brought with him to Ponta Do Ouro his many skill sets, not least his experience as an architect, without that we would not have our beautiful bungalows nor the bar or restuarant for that matter! He is now based in Maputo but can also be seen at the lodge from time to time.
I am often traveling, but we have our co-managers, Jorge and Mika, who really run the show at the lodge. And who also are incredible chefs. One must try the chicken and Seafood dishes. Our staff are essential in helping to realize the full potential of the lodge.
