About us

Meet Michele & Timo

Michèle De Nijs

Managing Director

Born and raised in Germany, Michele was bitten by the travel bug at a very early age.

She moved to London as soon as she was able to stand on her own two feet, living and working in the city for three years and meeting a host of South Africans and Namibians in the process. After holidaying with some of these new friends in Africa, she decided that she belonged on the continent, and moved to Windhoek – where she met Timo.

Michele is the driving force behind all things Atelier Africa. She’s adept at discovering the latest and greatest safari destinations and experiences, and is in direct and continuous contact with all the lodges and service providers we book for our clients.

There’s no such thing as run of the mill for this master networker, whose inclination has always been for “a little something different”.

Michele she is also the point of contact for all our English and German clients.

Timo De Nijs

Marketing Director

Born and raised in Flemish Belgium, Timo has always loved exploring the outdoors, keenly capturing all he encounters on film.

At age 18, he moved to Namibia, and Africa soon became part of his blood. He made it his mission to travel the continent, working with and for luxury lodges in Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and beyond.

After he met his life, business and travel partner Michele in Windhoek, the two took to the less beaten tracks of Southern Africa in their trusted 4×4, experiencing the best of the region and sharing their highlights with clients.

Timo is responsible for creating visual representations for all the quotes that leave our atelier. He is also the point of contact for all Dutch and Flemish speaking clients. Being Belgian, he is of course also able to help anyone who requires assistance in French and English.
