Earth Travels is a collaboration between experts in travel, safari-tourism, eco-tourism, ICT, ecology and e-commerce.
The company has been established in 2017 with the vision to work towards a greener planet and help stimulate local economies.
Emmanuel Sanga studied tourism in Kenya and has worked for multiple lodges and tour operators. Currently residing in the Netherlands, he decided to start with his own travel business. His motto is that local communities should benefit from tourism, instead of the money ending up in the hands of large tourism holdings.
Henri Kerkdijk-Otten has worked in the ICT and e-commerce world for about twenty years. He also has experience as chairman of a nature foundation and has worked for other nature organizations. With Earth Travels, Mr Kerkdijk-Otten is able to combine his vision for a green world with his expertise.
Juliette Strange is very passionate about protecting wildlife and endangered species, as well as their environments. She has helped set up anti-poaching squads in Zimbabwe and done research on elephants in South Africa. She believes travel is a hugely important tool for education, to open minds, assist local communities and protect the environments and nature we love. Juliette wants to bring her passions together to help people live healthier, greener lives in harmony with wildlife and nature.
Michael Willett has set up his own successful eco-tourism company. He is trained as an ecologist and believes in the power of tourism to help create a sustainable future for the planet. Because Mr Willet wanted to expand his portfolio, he decided to co-found Earth Travels.
