Guide Profile:

I am passionate about sharing what South Africa has to offer tourists, enjoy travelling and often use new routes not travelled by the main stream if time allows.

Started my guiding career in 2007 and spent 7 years as night tour guide(including Zoo sleepovers) at Pretoria Zoo, educating people on the wild animals in a safe environment.

Have also toured with a few companies with different groups both large and small. Various day tour in and around Johannesburg and Pretoria. Kruger Park and Pilansberg.

As a family we  enjoy the outdoors camping as often as we can and one of our  favourite places is the Kruger national park, also enjoy touring South Africa.

Play a bit of golf now and then, but golf is my handicap.

I am a qualified financial adviser and tax practitioner and have a few select clients that I look after.

I keep up-to-date with the tourism industry and attend courses to improve my knowledge whenever I can.
