Guide Profile

After I’ve been retrenched I decided to put my knowledge as a SANParks Honorary Ranger to use so I qualified myself as a guide. I am a stickler for customer service and hate sloppiness. I have been arranging itineraries for international guest that I met through friends and accompanied them on their tours which they thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. I hold a B.A. Hons degree in Industrial Psychology and an incomplete Masters degree so I am fully in tune with group-dynamics. I think on my feet and am able to confront any situation as it arises.
I am able to use humour when and where appropriate and get guests to relax as soon as we meet. Over the years I was able to develop a network of contacts in most places across South Africa where Guests can go for either relaxation, see our wild-life, purchase wine on wine-routes, etc.
Through the training I received at and from Drumbeat Academy, I was able to hone and refine my guiding skills and am now ready to put it to practice. I now look forward to showing off our interesting country to Visitors and Guests.
