Meet local guide Ken

I am a passionate, experienced private tour guide for the Western & Eastern Cape (WC10878) focusing on tailor made tours to suit your requirements.

I speak English and Afrikaans. (similar to Dutch) I am a born and bred South African who has spent most of my life touring, exploring and living a life of adventure throughout South Africa. I grew up in Cape Town and have lived in Johannesburg, but I now reside along the scenic Garden Route. I have such a passion for South Africa and love to share my beautiful country with its rich heritage and culture in the most relaxed and welcoming manner. Each client starts as a stranger and ends as a good friend with fantastic memories shared.

I am a registered tour guide who has toured South Africa extensively including all major National Parks such as the Kruger National Park, the Pilanesberg National Park, the Addo Elephant National Park, the West Coast National Park. My passion for South Africa and in particular the Western Cape is what drives me. To share my home with others is a truly special experience. If you are looking for a well-informed, true local who knows the best spots to explore then I am your guide! Let’s go on this adventure together!
