Erika is our Admin Manager, heading up the team in charge of all the minutiae, checks, and logistics that go into making our guest’s experiences perfect! Erika, Samora, and Angie work together to book the airport transfers, carefully mark routes on all our maps, put together itineraries & info packs, and prepare the mobile phones, cool boxes, and First Aid Kits that all our guests receive on arrival. (Not to mention the very important task of compiling the weekly shopping list to ensure BBB doesn’t run out of Earl Grey tea…)
Erika was born into tourism, both her parents worked for the then “Natuurbewarings Ministerie” (government Nature Conservation before independence). They worked at Ai-Ais Resort and that’s where Erika grew up. She started her first job with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, and then moved over to NWR (Namibia Wildlife Resorts), working there for almost 8 years, before moving to Windhoek.
Here Erika worked in a hotel for a while before moving to Rivendell Guest House, our previous sister company. Here she looked after guests from all over the world for almost 10 years. We’re very lucky that she moved over to ATI when Rivendell closed in 2022, and she’s settled into her new role with plenty of confidence and ability!
