Ellen Spielberger

Management and Travel Designer

Since 1995 I have regularly travelled to countries in Eastern and Southern Africa. I was fortunate to be able to gather my first professional experience on this continent by working for one of the most noted luxury incoming agencies with operation in eastern and southern Africa. During these 2½ years in sales and marketing for the German speaking market, I was not only able to acquire sustainable product knowledge, but was also able to see behind the curtain of the tour operating business at the same time. Subsequently I joined a tour operator who specialised in Africa and was mainly responsible for building up and expanding the product portfolio for Eastern Africa. Consequently I was called into the wide ‘African’ world, where I lived and worked in various camps, firstly in Zimbabwe and thereafter in Kenya. Equipped with this knowledge, I founded Bush Legends in February 2001. Since then the company has constantly developed. We consistently grow with our challenges and are proud of satisfying the highest quality requirements in the organisation of discerning and tailor made journeys to Africa.

Africa means to me:

Escape from civilisation, immersion in a unique animal kingdom, scenery and hospitality as well as always an adventure!

Marion Winter

Travel Designer

I have been a part of the Bush Legends team since September 2004 and have very much enjoyed this interesting and eclectic challenge. During various journeys to Africa, especially to Eastern Africa, I have gained well-founded product knowledge, which is constantly being updated by regular product educational trips to our destinations. I especially take pleasure in sharing this knowledge with our valued clients to organise their tailor made travel arrangements according to their specific requirements. It gives me great joy to contribute in realising the respective dream journeys in Africa. In May 2011 I moved to Berlin for personal reasons and today’s technology enables me to work for Bush Legends as usual, just with the little difference, that I now do it from my home office. I continuingly look forward to assist you with any requests you may have. For now, I am on maternity leave. I am going to be back for you mid of June 2018.

Africa means to me:

Team Assistance

I was born in South Africa and also grew up there. After school I had the opportunity of living and working in Germany for 12 years, during which time I also successfully finished my studies in Tourism Management. After graduation in 2005 I was very fortunate to be able to start my career with Bush Legends. I truly take pleasure in creating individual and high quality itineraries for our clients in Africa, a continent that is close to my heart. Since October 2008 I have moved back to my home country South Africa with a small family of my own. Thanks to modern technology, I am still part of the Bush Legends Team.
