Founder & CEO

Marco

“Legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people.”

I love this quote from Peter Strople, because it encapsulates the importance of travelling to Africa, both for her tourists and her residents. When you travel to the Mother Continent you’re contributing to the ongoing development, growth and protection of this incredible land, her wildlife and her people. But the impact goes both ways.

A journey through Africa deposits something eternal into your heart: putting your feet on African soil shapes your very soul. That’s why, at Timeless Africa Safaris, we love helping people to experience Africa at her best. Entrust your African holiday to my team of expert travel managers and join us on the journey of a lifetime.

When he isn’t at the helm of Timeless Africa Safaris, Marco partakes in various business ventures throughout the world. He is also a founding member of the Cape Town Chapter of YPO (Young Presidents Organisation), where he was honoured with the organisation’s most prestigious accolade, the YPO Hickok Award, for distinguished service.

In addition to his passion for travel and Africa, Marco’s enthusiasm for giving back is unmatched. Much of his consideration is given to leaving a legacy – not just for our children, but in our children – through the gift of travel to Africa. As a dedicated father and a very involved grandfather he firmly believes, “When we travel with our children, we are giving them a gift that will last their lifetime.”

Marco is the driving force behind Timeless Africa Safaris’ fundraising initiatives and raising awareness for Stop Rhino Poaching, the promotion of the Rhino Bill of Rights, the Lalela Project, and Coats for Cape Town.
