My name is Dorienne and I have been in the travel and tourism industry since around 1975.
As a child and growing up in a small mining town close to Johannesburg, I was always thrilled at the anticipation of experiencing new places and visiting the Kruger National Park every year seated between two older brothers in the backseat of the Dodge and later a Valiant with my father in the driving seat. We would spend hours on the road and listen to him chatting about what we might find at the destination and, to keep us all occupied, he would ask us to find all kinds of things outside the windows of the car as we churned the dust of poorly maintained gravel roads or answered his questions about a town’s history.
These bi-annual, long journeys (one in summer and the other in winter) certainly gave me a sense of the charm, the wonder and the pure joy of travel. More especially, I started to love this land of contrasts.
I needed to observe everything from dancing spiders in starkly desolate regions to streaking seals diving in the shallows of the Cape Town harbour: the golden grasslands of the Free State to the gigantic termite mounds in the Kruger National Park.
From the Southern African shoreline to the jagged peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains there was always something new, something to take my breath away and this awe is what I strive to bring you in every luxury tour that I create. I openly share with you my passion, my knowledge and my experiences so that you leave this land with Africa in your heart and soul.
From the first email we exchange, I will bring you all my energy, knowledge, and absolute passion for Africa and its inspiring spirit to create a truly magical tour for you of this incredible landscape.
I look forward to meeting you and I hope you’ll contact me when you are ready to celebrate and share Africa with my expert guidance and passionate dedication to excellent client service.
