I can still remember where I was standing at the age of seven years old when I said, “I want to be a guide when I grow up!” Many years later after finishing school and going through university studying environmental management, I ended up working the corporate world conducting environmental impact assessments which were extremely interesting but there was something missing from my life… Passion. It took a long time to decide whether or not to go into guiding but eventually I made up my mind and took the plunge.

After completing my 6 month live-in course in guiding I then started working at a private lodge in Kruger National Park called Tinga and within a year had been offered a position at the prestigious Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve. For the next 5 years I immersed myself in the incredible bushveld that is Sabi Sabi. The amazing things I saw, the fantastic people I met and the education I gained propelled my career forward. I became the assistant head ranger for the company and held this position for just over two years.
