Meet Bheki…

  1. In my carry-on bag I always have my cell phone and a physical map of my destination, in case there is no data coverage. 
  1. I never leave home without my cell phone, camera, flashlight, and GPS – very useful if you’re hiring a car in a foreign country and need to find your way around. 
  1. The best souvenir I ever brought home was a wooden watch from Mozambique. It’s quite funky and unique – I’ve never seen such as different design.
  1. My favourite thing to do in a new place is… I love the experience of living like the locals, so I begin a trip by learning some of the language and about the customs.
  1. Before I go to a new place, I find out about the sights of interest in that area. 
  1. The question I’m most often asked by guests is: “Is it common for me to drive long distances?” Only when transferring guests to special places like safari lodges, which are set remotely in pristine wildernesses.
  1. My best piece of travel advice is always make sure your cell phone is charged for taking photos and in case of emergency. Charge it overnight or plug it in for a quick boost while you’re getting ready to head out.
  1. I got my love of travel from the road trips my family took when I was a child, across the country to visit family on the farms. Cutting through different landscape, each beautiful and interesting in its own way, made travelling enjoyable and all part of the holiday for me.
  1. In my suitcase you’d be surprised to find a flashlight, in case I need to change a flat tire at night.
  1. One moment from my travels I will never forget is seeing Victoria Falls for the first time. It was emotional to realise how much beauty we have right on our doorstep.
