    I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?

                  I take visitors to Cape Town on guided, private off-the-beaten-path day trips. I’m a journalist, photographer and tour guide.The prehistoric San bushman rock art (cave painting) exploration trip to the Cederberg mountains outside Cape Town is a unique adventure as it takes in a hike in the African wilderness as well as art, archaeology and cultural history. You’ll get to see and experience this ancient art in the place it was painted thousands of years ago, learn about early man – our human origins – and hike through pristine African wilderness to access the painted rock shelters.
