About

Our Story

Jambo! (Swahili for “Hello!”)

The story of Magical Africa began when our founder’s ancestors arrived on the shores of East Africa for the first time.

Born in the continent of Africa, founder Nilesh Mehta has significant knowledge of Africa as a result of his own heritage there.

Nilesh Mehta grew up on the shores of Lake Victoria in the small town of Mwanza in Tanzania. His childhood was spent swimming in the lake, and frequently going on safaris to the nearby Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. From an early age, he was able to witness the wonderful wildlife and the semi-nomadic traditions of the Maasai and the hunter-gatherer lifestyle of the Hadzabe tribe. Later, in pursuit of further education, he moved to California, USA where he has resided for over twenty five years, while continuing to make frequent trips to Africa with his family and friends.
