Johannesburg Tour Guides
I have a National Diploma in Nature Conservation and worked as a safari guide and game lodge manager for 6 years prior to deciding on a change in scenery. I enjoy interacting with people. The one thing I enjoy most about my work is meeting different people from around the world and learning about how life is elsewhere. I specialize in doing safaris and enjoy this most – tours to Kruger Park, Pilanesberg National Park etc. Bird watching tours too. During my spare time I enjoy wildlife photography, fly fishing, bird watching and sport.
I had my Own Promotions and PR Company for many years. From there, I moved into the corporate world and finally food retailing. I lost all my money, due to poor business decisions, and at the age of 58 had to re-invent myself. I had heard and become a friend of David Rattray and decided to model myself on him- History in story form. I am privileged to share the story of this country with interested, interesting and pleasant people. I enjoy our history across all colour groups as well as the diversity of cultures of South Africans. When I am able to put my feet up, I read History. Read History. Read History. Researching Historical events with a bit of Rugby and Cricket viewing in-between.
(pronounced as Knoet in Afrikaans). I am a national guide and registered for 5 of the 9 provinces.
I was born in South Africa to Swedish parents who had come to South Africa (from Sweden) in the 1950. I have grown up in South Africa and have been back to Sweden on a few occasions. I really enjoy meeting people from all over and enjoy showing them the beauty and uniqueness of South Africa. I love spending time with family, friends and guests in nature – especially the bushveld outdoors. When I relax I enjoy reading (many different topics) and listening to music.
I have been a Trans Africa Safaris representative in Johannesburg for over 15 years. I have an extensive knowledge in tourism administration & related industries. What I enjoy most about my vocation is the fact that I meet the most amazing people & enjoy the interaction where I get the opportunity to talk about our beautiful country. My hobbies are walking, reading & scrap booking.
I was born in Johannesburg, matriculated in 1973, and studied both in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
I qualified as a tourist guide in 2006. As such, I am able to indulge my love of my country and pride in our achievements, by taking visitors to South Africa around the sites and through the cities, to meet and interact with the people who make up our “Rainbow Nation”. I love to help visitors to our shores experience the warmth and hospitality of South Africans, whilst educating people as to our heritage, personalized by interesting stories. I work closely with my guests to ensure their visit is enriching and unforgettable.
After many years in the chemical industry, I am now involved full time in the tourism business as an operator / guide.
I am a qualified South African Tourist Guide, my special interests are wildlife, history (in general), South African history. I was a general dental practitioner, in private practice for 33 years until I became tired of the daily routine, I still wanted to work with people, but in a different way, and also be able to indulge my passion for history. Guiding allows me meet people from different walks of life, and being able to share my knowledge about our amazing country. My special interest in guiding is Palaeoanthropology i.e. guiding in the “Cradle of Humankind. My hobbies include reading a lot, mainly history, especially Egyptology, and I build model ships, aircraft and armoured vehicles.
