I get super excited every time I get to share my country with anyone and I want to make sure that when someone does come, they are blown away by the people, the beauty and the incredible value for money experiences. I enjoy spending time to find out what each visitor needs to make their experience unforgettable and very tailored to their needs. I want them to start planning their next trip to Southern Africa, the moment they get on the plane to go back home.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Southern Africa - Cape Town, Kruger, Garden Route, Vic Falls, Chobe, Okavango.
Indian Ocean Islands - Mauritius, Seychelles, Reunion and Madagascar."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I really wanted to study law in Cape Town. My dad said that I have to go to Pretoria to be closer to him, but if I wanted to study Tourism, I am allowed to go to Cape Town. So I chose the destination and not the course!
Today I can not imagine working in another industry. I love the travel industry and meeting the people along the way."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"There are a few, but for a South African, living on the other side of the world, Alaska was the most mind blowing for me. It is just SO different from what I know and hiking on a glacier on my birthday close to the small town, McCarthy was something I will never forget.
Back on this side of the world, Victoria Falls will never stop to amaze me. Besides the majesty of the falls, it also has a real African feel and you actually do have elephants walking around in the streets. It is only an hour from Chobe where there are plains full of wildlife."
