Barbara Lavrich-Winani

Ol Mesera is owned by Mrs. Barbara Lavrich-Winani, who originates from Slovenia but has lived in Tanzania for more than 40 years, for the larger part in the Serengeti. I've simply got African blood in my veins. About Ol Mesera she says, of all the things I've done in my life, this is what I like to do most!Together with the local staff she will do anything to maximize the enjoyment of your stay.


Lucas joined the Ol Mesera team in September 2013. He is a skilled cook and you will recognize him by his amazing smile. Lucas maintains the vegetable garden, takes care of the chicken and cooks all your fabulous meals.
