About Caroline

Guiding History

I was born in Jhb but wasn’t ever really a city girl, I loved the KNP in my youth & after university and an attempt at corporate life, I realized its not for me. I worked at Londolozi Private Game Reserve in the Sabi-Sands as a camp manager for three magical years. I loved being in hospitality but longed to be out in the bush all day and learn about the wildlife. I did the &Beyond ranger course in January 2011, and am working at Phinda Forest Lodge in Maputaland, KZN. Phinda has 7 different eco-tones and great viewing of Cheetah, Black Rhino, as well as the Big 5 and a huge variety of birdlife. This coastal reserve is only an hour’s drive from the Indian Ocean so there are lots of opportunities for beach trips, scuba diving and even turtle guiding. I am now currently guiding at Phinda Mountain Lodge and loving it!
