Born in 1970 in a small town in the Netherlands I had a happy childhood. I married in 1992 and worked at a printing company for over 12 years.
After our first Africa-trip in 1997 to Tanzania and Zanzibar we fell in love with Africa and kept coming back.
In January 2004 we left everything behind, packed our belongings in a container and emigrated with our 2 dogs to South Africa. Our 3 sons were born here and grow up in the bush.
Here we build up our small lodge in the middle of a Big 5 Nature Reserve. We welcome you to stay in our intimate game-lodge, so we can show you why we love Africa so much. Feel 'Amukela' (welcome) at our lodge in the Balule Nature Reserve!
