Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

From a young age I knew my calling would be in the wild. Although my passion for nature came from spending years along the coasts of southern Africa, living and working in conservation along the garden route and the Cape Peninsula, I completely fell in love with the Succulent Karoo when I arrived.

After completing my diploma in Nature Conservation at The Cape Peninsula University of Technology I knew that my calling would be in education. My fondest memories have come from teaching children on Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve about our world and the delicate ecosystems which we have lost touch with. It seemed the logical step to become a guide and make my contribution by educating and helping people understand how amazing life is, in all forms, from the humble Little Grebe to our majestic Rhinos.

I am a firm believer in conservation. Conservation is however a human action, in which education through guiding plays a very important role and I am proud to be part of the effort to educate!

We often perceive happiness to come from acquiring material possessions. The most important possession in life however, is life itself and the experiences life brings and knowing that however small the difference you are making, it is still important!
