Paul Brinkmann

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.
