    THE Organizers
    Fanny Martinez

    Fanny acquired an abundance of executive management and TV production experience throughout her 20+ year career working in a creative marketing capacity within corporate entertainment companies like Warner Bros and Disney. She soon gained the reputation of being the “go-to” person because of her attention to detail and “can-do” attitude.

    Fanny’s skills further evolved into the creative design and website development arena. In 2017, Fanny decided to focus on her passion for the environment and was hired as Director of Operations for Stop Poaching Now! a Los Angeles-based non-profit dedicated to the conservation of Africa’s endangered wildlife. She applied similar functions as the acting Business Development Manager for Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda.

    In 2018, Fanny founded the Back to the Source Tours movement, bringing USA influencers/ celebrities to Africa for brand marketing campaigns. Her Uganda project of 2019-2020 was funded by government agencies and supported by her hospitality partners. 

    On top of exposing the World Wide Web to the beauty of the motherland, she works with hotel clientele in marketing strategies, training staff, and providing immense value to the tourism sector in order to enhance their potential.

    Katharina Bertram

    A German national who moved to Uganda after acquiring a Bachelor of Arts in Tourism and Event
    Management. She is very passionate about her work as a travel consultant and sees it as an honor to plan and organize peoples’ holidays while creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences and ever-lasting memories.

    Katharina stands out for an abundance of ideas and self-motivation in learning new skills and innovative ways. Due to her hands-on character, loyalty, and open mind, she attracted the attention of Fanny Martinez and became a partner to Back to the Source Tours in early 2019.

    During the pandemic, Katharina used the time to research and learn everything about sustainability, and how to implement it, and finally changed her personal lifestyle.

    In 2022 she founded the Exclusive Sustainable Tour Operators Association with a few other Tour Operators, to lobby for a sustainable tourism industry in Uganda. From this position, she became a consultant on the same topic in different committees and networks.
