He’s the champion when it comes to storming the office in the morning: Paco, the entertainer, captured our hearts in no time! Our office dog – a staff member we wouldn’t want to miss.
After she had graduated from highschool, Ann-Kathrin spent one year on the West Coast of the USA. She soon became fascinated with the United States and has travelled there on a regular basis ever since. Due to several trips around Europe Ann-Kathrin was able to gain further international experience. She supports Natucate producing online and print content as well as taking care of our agency's social networking activities. The skills she acquired during her language and communication studies benefit her work at Natucate.

In summer 2016 our team was given another helping hand: After she had graduated from highschool, Theda travelled Southern Africa for half a year, joined a safari guide course and became fascinated with this special continent. Her wish to take over responsibility came true: In 2013 Theda founded CONSAFARITY and a little later the Knyphausen Foundation for Sustainability, Nature Conservation and Education. CONSAFARITY specializes in customized safaris in Southern Africa. 3% of each booking are used to support the work of the Knyphausen Foundation. In June 2016 Theda joined Natucate to support our team in Botswana, where she lives most of the year. Due to her happy nature and broad experience it would be hard to imagine her not being part of the team.
