I swopped a career as advocate and business consultant for the brave world of being a serial entrepreneur and guest farm host!

Looking forward to comparing notes on adventure tourism, good cuisine and what makes the African Bushveld such a captivating place.

New guests are just friends I haven't met before! Once settled in I will leave you in peace..or give a shout and my team can recommend activities on the farm or in the area.

My motto..."he/she with the most photo albums win this life's race!"
