Paul Brinkmann – Chief Operations Officer Sense Of Africa

A family man who loves endurance sport, his job and travel. Paul left his law partnership in 2003 to join Sense of Africa. Working in tourism provides the opportunity to travel and then to share those experiences with others, both professionally and personally, which he loves.

His favourite experience is sitting back at the end of a day after doing some high adrenaline activity with a glass of single malt in one hand and a fat cigar in the other, savouring life. His favourite food is a proper beef burger. The bigger and greasier the better, with all the trimmings, onions, bacon, avocado, chilli sauce and cheese together with fries and a beer. A real cholesterol bomb.

Martin Cook
Martin CookManaging Director East Africa
Martin’s passion is delivering excellence through the empowerment and development of the company’s greatest assets namely, the dedicated and highly committed team across East Africa. Having worked across 3 continents, this has certainly benefited him in the acquisition of knowledge from many different and diverse experiences and cultures. Being his second time living and working in Africa, proves the saying right. ‘You can take a man out Africa, but you can never take Africa out of man’. Once bitten, the ‘bug’ of Africa remains deeply rooted.
Jimmy Nandwa
Jimmy NandwaChief Financial Officer
Jimmy has been in the tourism industry for close to 13 years. Initially as an auditor for 8 years, then working in the finance department for 5 years and counting. He lives by the motto : “Where you are is as a result of who you were, but where you go depends entirely on who you choose to be.”

His favourite experience thus far was being there during the birth of his daughter and son. His favourite food is a local dish called “chapati” with beef stew and cabbage.
