Story of a great passion

The villa
Nyumba ya Mbuyu Villa (“the home of the Baobab” in Swahili) was born from Gianni Maitan's passion for nature and photography, a passion that led him to visit many parks and natural reserves in 13 African countries, seeking out spectacular images of wild animals in their natural habitat. Since his first trip to Kenya in 1983 he was engulfed by "mal d'Africa" and since then has dreamt of living in Africa. Finally, during Christmas 2013 he took the plunge and decided to run a luxury holiday home in Malindi, Kenya. From all the African countries, Gianni chose Kenya because of the myriad of parks populated by many wonderful species of animals,  the mild-climate and the variety of landscapes. Crystal clear seas and endless savannahs make Malindi the perfect starting point of an unforgettable African experience. Malindi also hosts an international airport (MYD) and in a few minutes you can be strolling along it's beautiful white sandy beaches.
Gianni Maitan
Gianni Maitan is an italian engineer and entrepreneur. For many years he dedicated himself to wildlife photography. His photographs have been published in books and magazines and exhibited in several exhibitions in Italy and abroad.. In December 2004, by Giorgio Mondadori Editori, he published the book "African Parks" and the year after was coauthor of the "Guide for traveling in Kenya" published in October 2005 by Polaris Editore. In April 2009 Sassi Editore has published in his new photographic volume "Wonderful African Parks". Gianni won many first prizes in prestigious national and international photography competitions. Moreover, with the Naturalistic Photography Italian team, from 1999 to 2012 was the winner of 8 world cups and 2 gold medals in the "Nature FIAP Biennials" World championships.
