Steffi Presske,

Co-owner of Gondwana Tours and Safaris

I met Melissa some years ago at a travel trade show and we became instant friends. I have hardly ever met such passionate and enthusiastic and well spoken person in my life. She works hard for what she believes in, is the best representative I have ever seen. All about Africa is a fabulous company and will go a long way!

“Melissa is one of the most dynamic and effective people I've ever worked with in the travel industry. She is a highly charged bundle of energy; a real catalyst for action when combined with her shrewd commercial intelligence, excellent marketing knowledge and a grounded, ethical approach to business and tourism. I'd work with her again any day.” - Mark Wright, The Adventure Connection, has

UK Charity Climb Group Dig Deep

“I worked with Melisa when she was working for African Scenic Safaris. At the time we had 100+ of our charity’s fundraising volunteer’s climbing Kilimanjaro in just over the space of a week, which is always a big organizational challenge. Throughout Melissa was always one step ahead of what we needed in terms of trip logistics, had the answer to every question and was professional and reassuring with our volunteers. She is also a lot of fun to work with”  


I've been tremendously fortunate to meet and work with Melissa through our shared mission and passion to promote responsible tourism in Africa. No words will do justice to Melissa's rare level and combination of energy, intellect, natural born speaking and presentations skills, ability to connect with people and bring them together, all combined with the right passion, hard work and discipline to make a positive contribution. I can only congratulate anyone looking for a marketing champion and lucky enough to engage Melissa's services for your cause. Melissa is a game changer. I've never met anyone like her, and I'm sure whatever Melissa gets involved in becomes a success—more so than you might ever have thought possible.
