Our People

Fabio & Barbara, Greystoke Mahale

Fabio & Barbara were both born and raised in Germany. At the age of 18 they met and immediately knew they had found their soulmate. Fabio has a background in industrial engineering and Barbara spent half a decade in Barcelona with a fashion company. Eventually they moved back to Germany, but after a few years in the corporate jungle, Fabio and Barbara were seeking to create a more fulfilling life. In 2013 they got married, spent their honeymoon in Botswana, and immediately became captivated by the wild beauty of the African bush. Since then they have been traveling each year to different countries across Eastern Africa. 

In 2015 they founded their own NGO called Pencils For Hope, with the aim of giving children in Tanzania a chance at a better education. In collaboration with Nomad Trust, they support Katumbi Village, just a short boat ride from Greystoke Mahale. 

In 2017, they decided to follow what had become their biggest dream and moved to Tanzania to start a new life in the bush. They are very passionate about Tanzania’s wildlife, its people and the environment. At Greystoke the pair have settled down into the magical setting that is Mahale, with new found freedoms and the joys of living so close to nature, they are truly in their element.
