Nick Mantheakis was born in England but raised in Africa, with a Greek and English heritage, so by default is a born traveller or as he calls himself a ‘nomad.’ With 25 years experience living and operating adventure travel operations in Africa and the Middle-East, he is always thinking well beyond the box for a solution to any given challenge.
Nick works primarily in operations, with his experience ranging from logistics to trip creation and management as well being responsible for the back of house operations of the company. Nick and his wife Tina are based on the Mediterranean Island of Mallorca, and when they’re not working out how to overcome a challenge for a trip they can be found paddle boarding with their Labrador ‘Buddy’.
Tina Kistenmacher was born in Germany but Raised in South Africa. She has spent over half her life on the water. After gaining a degree in hotel management she left the ‘Mother’ city in search of new adventures in far flung places.
Over the course of her maritime career she worked on large cruise ships and tall ships as a hotel manager, before eventually moving to private superyachts where she worked as a purser. Her last post was on a 90+ more mega yacht.
During one of her breaks between shifts on board, she met Nick our operations manager and gave up her life at sea, for a quieter life on land in Mallorca.
Tina is our superyacht specialist and together with Nick Mantheakis runs all our logistics and operations.
In addition to Roger, Neil, Nick and Tina, Dulabab Travel collaborates with a scaleable and global network of highly respected and creative logistical partners, conservation specialists and passionate facilitators, drawing on their years of experience to deliver the most unique journeys, pioneering adventures and breathtaking experiences to guests worldwide.
