About Me


I want to complete my studies , and try to have as much fun as possible while doing it.


I studied Mechanical Engineering at Tshwane University of Technology after completing my degree in Business Management in 2013 at the University of Pretoria.

I am an adventurous and outdoor person. I love life, and want to explore the world and all it has to offer. To me life is what you make of it.
I see myself as a friendly, fun and outgoing type of person that is always willing to help out a friend.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are to many... Each and every expedition is unique in it's own way.

Teach, Learn, Share

Broad knowledge of local Hiking and Mountain climbing.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am sorry to say, but I'm not going site seeing with you. I've seen all our monuments and tourist attractions over and over again. If you suggest a place I haven't seen, I'll most likely join.

Over weekend: hiking, climbing, horse riding or just taking it easy on the farm.

In the week: I have class all day, but I'll do my best to spend some time with my guests and give them a little local info.
