Our Staff :


Nico Prinsloo

Tour Guide

My first encounter with life was, when I was born at Eshowe, Kwa-Zulu Natal and later completed my schooling in Durban. I was employed in Sales and Marketing industry for most of my adult life, after which I joined the Tourism industry. As qualified guide for Swaziland and the entire South Africa I enjoy every moment on tour - from sunsets in Cape Town to the sunrises over the African bush.

My most memorable moment on tour was when an Irish couple got engaged on top of Table Mountain. …finding an engagement ring while on tour proved to be quite an experience!
