The friendship with Andrea Porro and a degree in Biology have been fatal: now in Kafue National Park she feels like home. Living between Italy, Zambia and somewhere, when at Konkamoya she collaborates with Andrea, Sam and David to manage the camp, creating the unique “Konkamoya Style”: a mix of wilderness and warm family atmosphere with a special Italian touch.

Andrea Porro

Born and grown in Milan, Italy, Andrea interests himself with wild animals and plants from when he was a child. He studied Zoology and his love for photography brought him to travel all around the world. In 2007 he discovered Zambia and the Kafue National Park. The variety of biodiversity forced him to return repeatedly in the beautiful national park, until he finally saw the opportunity to turn his studies into work. He now prefers the simple life of the bush, spending most of the year at his Konkamoya Lodge. From 2010 he actively contributes to the development of the camp, living between Milan and Zambia and occupying himself with the management of the lodge in the high season and the marketing in the low season.
