Hi, I’m Wian, a.k.a “SafariWian”. I’m a world traveling tour guide and come from a small town in South Africa. I started my a career as a Junior Safari Guide
in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, after which I moved over to Anti-Rhino Poaching and Black Rhino monitoring for a year.That was a crazy adventure in itself where I had to drive around in Big 5 terrain on a scrambler motorbike, being chased by Rhinos, Buffalos, Elephants and Lions more times than I would’ve liked.
After an adventure-filled year of that,I decided to get back into the guiding scene and landed a job as a Safari Guide in the World-renowned Kruger National Park, where I grew my knowledge and skills and really learnt how to work with people on a daily basis. I loved every minute of it.Living in the middle of the African bush, seeing the Big 5 on a daily basis, approaching animals on foot and not to mention the sundowners we had with almost every sunset.
I did that for a few years and after being presented with an unbelievable opportunity I decided to leave Kruger and work for a company doing Bird Watching Tours Worldwide. Since then I’ve traveled to the USA, all over Africa and even more in South Africa. I moved to the beautiful city of Cape Town and made it my base from where I would go out and explore.
Exploring nature and experiencing adventure at all kinds of levels are what I love to do and it’s my goal to build this platform (check me out on Social Media) to such an extent that it if gives from the novice all the way to the experienced traveler more confidence to travel easier, cheaper and independently.
