I started my guiding career straight after High School where I did my FGASA Level 1 and Level 2 successfully as well as completed my Trailsguide Qualification – Theory and Practical assessments at Entabeni Safari Conservancy. After obtaining my Diploma in Nature Guiding, I started working in the lodges at Entabeni. After a couple years of guiding I became the Senior Ranger and later the Head Ranger where I oversaw Lakeside, Kingfisher (5*) and Eagles Nest Lodges with a team of 12 guides. After reaching my goals and obtaining the relevant tourism experience, it was time for me to move on into a new and more challenging environment. I then started working for Drifters Adventours as full time Overland Guide conducting overland adventure tours extensively throughout Southern and East Africa with groups of up to 18 individuals, on anything from a 5 day to a 24-day tour. Being a professional safari field guide and wildlife lover, I was also a very keen photographer. My passion for wildlife, people, solving problems and being amongst nature has led me into the tourism sector and into a career that fulfils all these requirements as well as helping me embark on my own explorations (from a career point of view but also from a personal point of view). One of my most exciting years to date was spending a year up in Uganda - a highlight I would never forget and where I was able to spend time with the wild mountain gorillas and have the opportunity to photograph them in their natural environment and habitat. I love nothing more than heading out to the African bush, pitching up a tent, taking a group of excited visitors out to find wildlife and then cooking up a feast at the end of the day. I also started photographing wildlife and the bush as a hobby after getting my first digital SLR camera in 2012. Since then the camera has never left my side and my photographs are a record of the incredible journey’s I have been on whilst guiding and travelling. Guiding for Drifters roughly 4 years, I started focusing my attention more towards the marketing side of things of which I then became full time Marketing Assistant with Drifters. Focusing my travels further abroad to Europe and Scandinavia on marketing trips and travel shows of which I soon realized the potential and opportunities to allow guests traveling to Africa, to have the most amazing experience and holidays out there. I then came to a cross road in my life whereby I needed more adventure and even more challenges – of which I subsequently officially launched my own adventure tour company called Junglers Adventure Tours in 2018. This gave me the opportunity to share my passion, knowledge, skills and adventures with others and having the chance to give back to visitors some of the experiences I’ve had in my lifetime and lead them to creating their own memories. I have never looked back on my decision in starting Junglers Adventure Tours and look forward to a long road of challenges, adventure, fun, hard work and a sense of fulfillment and success!
