Robin Cormack was born and bred in Zimbabwe and grew up on a game ranch in the south east of the country. After 4 years of international travel post university, Robin started his formal career in tourism in the boiling pot of Victoria Falls in 1997. He set up and ran an adventure film company with his brother, filming adventure and adrenaline sports activities. In 2000 Robin worked for Safari Par Excellence managing their overland business prior to moving to Zambia (with his now wife) where he was General Manager of The River Club, part of Wilderness Safaris, for 3 years.
After getting married in 2004, Robin convinced his English wife to return to the UK. He landed a job with Iluka, an industry leading specialised event agency and held key management positions at the 2004 summer Olympics in Athens and 2004 European MTV awards in Rome. In 2005, looking to get back into travel and tourism, Robin went to work for Africa Travel Resource with the web development team. During his time with ATR the entire database was restructured and the website redesigned, twice. During his watch 8 new countries were added to the site.
After 5 years with ATR, Robin decided that it was time to use all the experience he had gained in Tourism, to set up Mamba Media with Karen Black.
Karen Black, also hailing from Zimbabwe, moved to London in 1996 where she worked for a variety of companies, from charities to corporate, in the areas of design, presentation, web and multimedia, marketing and training. Karen joined the travel industry in 2003 and worked for UK Tour Operator Getaway (no longer trading), then Airline Centre (GSA for Air Namibia in the UK. In January 2007 Karen joined AMG Ltd (a sales and marketing representation company) where she worked as a Sales & Marketing Executive and later Manager for UK and Ireland for Namibia Tourism, until September 2009.
Karen then set up her own freelance business offering graphic design solutions to small and medium businesses before setting up Mamba Media with Robin Cormack in 2010.
From July 2008 to September 2012, Karen served on the committee for SATOA, an association that promotes travel to Southern African and Indian Ocean, helping to drive the association forward in terms of strategy, marketing, events and re-branding.
