Top Activity


I was born in a small town in the Eastern Cape and grew up in the beautiful coastal town of East London in a tight-knit farming community. After school I joined the South African Police Service as a professional musician playing the flute and piccolo performing at a number of events ranging from crime awareness initiatives to international military tattoos. In 2012 I moved to the spectacular Mother City of Cape Town and embarked on an entirely new career in travel (and haven’t looked back since)! I have a deep sense of adventure and a constant desire to explore and try new experiences. I live my passion every day and am grateful to share my experience, and learn from, people from all over the world.

Just a few travel highlights
