Renier Venter - Management Accountant
I'm not the born-and-bred surfer guy from Cape Town, but in the process of getting there! I grew up Johannesburg and Krugersdorp, relocated too many times to Pretoria and back, and only recently realised that life happens here in Cape Town!
I love anything outdoorsy; hiking, trail running, swimming and generally being out in nature. Although it might remain a dream, travelling into Africa is one of my biggest dreams - Congo especially. I'd also love to visit Zanzibar and Mozambique and really get to remote spots that not many others have travelled to.
Where have I travelled?
My favourite travel moment:
About six years ago we were in the Kruger National Park and a lioness who had just finished hunting came walking right up to our car. My window was open and she was so close I could almost touch her neck muscles as she was taking deep breaths after her hunt. It was extremely frightening and exhillarating, and a moment I'll never forget.
What I love about Africa:
You can travel anywhere in Africa and always see and experience something you haven't encountered before. The diversity in nature is simply mind-blowing.
