      He graduated from zoology at the Faculty of Science of Charles University in Prague. Formerly being a Czech Radio 2 editor and playwright, now he is an editorial chief. In 1994, he initiated the African Odyssey project and became the head of it. He has led all the project expeditions. He has broadcast multiple live sessions for Czech Radio 1 and Czech Radio 2, too.

      She was formerly working in the Czechoslovak radio. Then she joined a journalist foundation and in January 1998, she became a production manager of the African Odyssey project. Without her enthusiasm and undying activity, neither the African Odyssey nor the Kristyna Live show could ever be possible.

First he observed birds of prey and owls, then he concentrated on black storks. In 1994, while working as a curator of National Museum ornithological collections, he was one of those who initiated the African Odyssey project. Since then, he has been always ready to help all the time and has significantly contributed to the project. He took part in all the expedition except one.
