Michael Pienaar (23), is a director at LJP Tourism and also the Chairperson of the Magalies Business & Tourism Forum. His life has mostly been driven by his passion for golf which has given him the opportunity to explore the nine provinces in South Africa as well as the chance to visit various countries on four different continents. Through his travels he developed a huge passion for tourism and I decided to establish LJP Tourism which extends the group of LJP Engineering and LJP Architecture.
Baboon’s Rest is the venue that offers very exclusive experiences such as pop-up functions in our Organic tent, luxury picnics in the bush, romantic dinners under the stars, mountaintop helicopter picnic’s as well as mountaintop helicopter bush braai’s and our latest addition is Cashane Junior Rangers survival school which focuses on teaching children basic survival training.
