Meet the Namibia Travel Team
Owner & Managing Director
Born in Namibia to true Italian parents, my passion for Africa and all its magic started at a very young age, when listening to my dad talk of his life experiences in many African countries. Having grown up in Namibia and spent much time travelling around Namibia and its neighbouring countries, made me passionate about our wildlife as-well as the many other facets Namibia and the African continent have to offer.
Accounts & Human Resources

My name is Olivia Shefeni, a tour consultant based at NTC Head Office in Windhoek. I was born in Namibia, the land of open spaces as it is affectionately known.
I have been a part of the tourism industry, but my passion for tour consultancy started way back in 1999. Ever since then I have traveled to some breathtaking places in Namibia either with my family or work related travel. Namibia has a lot to offer; ranging from undiscovered landscapes to unspoiled nature. It is a land full of diversity and wonderful people. I am happy to be part of NTC Family and we are here to be at your service!
I was born in Johannesburg RSA, but our family moved to Namibia when I was a child, and bought a farm near the city of Windhoek. So from a young age I have enjoyed the outdoors and especially the opportunity to see and be near animals of all kinds! I’d like other people from all over the world to have the same experiences which I am so fortunate to have, and that is no doubt the main reason for me working in the tourism industry. Plus I get to meet people from all corners of the world, and learn a little about their lifestyles too.
