A born and bred Namibian, I spent my educational years in Cape Town where I studied Travel and Tourism, and have been in the industry since 1993. Starting in incentive and group travel, I joined Go2Africa in 2011 because they were a recognized industry leader in bespoke safari travel.
I organized and travelled extensively with incentive groups for 17 years before joining Go2Africa. I have personally visited and experienced the destinations that I recommend to clients.
Sundowner of Choice
An ice-cold Tafel Lager (local Namibian beer) - perfect in warm weather conditions.
When on Safari
Take time to put the camera away and let the moment sink in - whether it be a beautiful sunset or an amazing animal sighting.
Favourite Client Story
I invited a client around for a traditional 'braai' (barbecue) at my house when he was in town.
Less is more. Plan a second and third trip to Africa instead of fitting too much in at once.
Clients Always Say
You eat way too much! The food is just too good - skipping meals is simply not possible!
