Omar Samra is an entrepreneur, adventurer, future astronaut, and motivational speaker. He’s the first Egyptian to summit Everest, the 7 Summits and ski to both the North and South Pole. In 2009, following a career in Investment Banking, Private Equity and an MBA from London Business School, Omar founded Wild Guanabana, one of the region’s leading adventure travel companies where he still serves as CEO.

Subsequently Omar founded a handful of initiatives in the education, environment, and adventure space, as well as a children’s charity in his late wife’s honour. Omar is an Astronaut Candidate with PoSSUM, having undergone various space trainings and served as Vice-Commander of Lunares 3, a 15-day moon-analogue mission conducting research on lunar habitability. In 2017, Omar made three first ascents of Antarctica mountains and named them.

He rowed 1000 km across the Atlantic Ocean before capsizing in a storm. His survival story, which also sheds light on the plight of refugees crossing dangerous seas, was made into a documentary that screened at the Cannes & El Gouna Film Festivals to wide acclaim. Omar is a former Goodwill Ambassador to the UNDP and an honorary ambassador to Nepal.
