I grew up in a family who dedicated their lives to the tourism industry, especially in the Overberg district. From a time, I can remember, we travelled to the different parts of South Africa which broadened my knowledge of the towns, people and nature of our country.
I want to share two of my best memories travelling with you. On my honeymoon, I had the privilege to visit the mighty Kruger National Park. The service at these high-end properties was something special. The service we received made us feel like a king and queen. Nothing more adventurous than a professional guide taking you on a game drive and experiencing the true wild life outside where you feel part of the animal kingdom. One of the moments I will never forget was when the guide shut down all the lights of the game vehicle with lions lying close by…breath taking. At night at the unfenced camp you could hear the elephants walking past your luxury tent and baboons playing in the trees. One of the most romantic places I have visited is Knysna. Doing a boat cruise on the Knysna Lagoon while drinking a sundowner with a loved one or special friend is irreplaceable – not forgetting the backdrop of the Knysna Heads. At night, you enjoy your choice of restaurant – my favourite being These Island with its yachts and lights– in a town which takes you on a holiday far far away.
I wish to continue my life journey in the tourism industry where I can live out my passion for both people and tourism. I hope to give a memorable travel experience to my clients and walk in the footprints of my family by contributing towards the growth in the tourism industry.
