I grew up in Jhb and visited KNP regularly with my parents since I was a baby and developed an absolute passion for South African wildlife and the tranquillity of the bush.
After I completed school I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to work in KNP as receptionist for three years and assisting them with some game drives on the odd occasion.
When I returned to Jhb, I held a Debtors clerk position for almost 7 years.
Now I managed to fulfil my biggest dream by being able to return to the Bush by joining the LH family
I love meeting new people as well as learning something new every day about my surroundings and the wonderful creatures we share our space with.
I would like to pick up on my studies to qualify as a guide
