Mark William Nolting
Nolting wrote the book on African safaris—literally. The author of the compendium Africa’s Top Wildlife Countries, he has in-depth knowledge of the region and strong relationships with guides and lodge owners. And he takes client feedback (from more than 10,000 travelers and counting) very seriously, using it to improve every new itinerary.
Special booking: When a couple wanted to invite their adult children on their Tanzanian honeymoon, Nolting arranged two private vehicles for use during their stays at the 35,000-acre Manyara Ranch Conservancy close to the country’s northern border, Sayari Camp in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, and Singita Sasakwa Lodge in the Grumeti Reserves. The family also had lunch on the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater and took a hot-air-balloon ride over the Serengeti.
Specialties: East and Southern Africa, Madagascar and the Seychelles
