I am Marvellous and I come from a village in Bushbuckridge. I am happy to be in this Industry and I am so appreciative to have been given this opportunity to work for Tented Adventures. It is a dream come true, that I get to work with people from all around the world and giving them great service under the African sky. I love the challenge that work brings me every day, and in the coming years, I would to run a camp like this
My name is Themba Silinda from Bushbuckridge. At university, I studied crime risk management, which I thought was the route for me, but once I started working at Tented Adventures, there was no turning back. Every day is amazing here, I get to interact with guests from far and wide, I get to learn something new every day. To the rest of the team, I am the Braai master, as I have acquired a special skill for preparing meat for our guests.
I am Conni Hzinra from Bushbuckridge. Before I started at Tented Adventures, I had no previous experience but, with help from the team, I have learnt so many interesting things. The Team is like a family to me, which I am grateful to be a part of. Now I’m excited to get up every day and go to the job I love and soon in the near future I would like to obtain my field guide qualifications.
My name is Fortunate Moshao from Kabokweni. It brings me immense pleasure to work for this company, Tented Adventures. I am a very hard-working person and am extremely passionate about what I do. I enjoy meeting people from all round the world, and I am blessed to work with such an amazing team. Soon, I would like to take on a management role and make a difference in the company, that will take it to the next level.
I am Jason Branford, I am an extremely out going and fun person to be around. I love anything outdoors especially when it comes to nature. I have had a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge with people for long time, and working for Tented Adventures has given me best of both worlds. I don’t see myself living and working anywhere else.
My name is Michael Westraadt, I am a fun-loving guy, who enjoys all aspects in life, especially for the bush. I have been guiding now for over a decade, but what Tented Adventures offered me was so much more. I took the role of Camp manager and it has been one of the smartest thing I have ever done. I get to deal with guests on a whole different level and manage one spectacular Team.
I have started as a game tracker at a tender age, my father was a guide and what he shared with me growing up, made me what I am today. My love for people and nature made me fall in love with field guiding. Meeting people from all walks of life with different cultures makes my love for the job even better. I love sharing the information I know with others and field guiding gives me the opportunity to do so as I have lots to talk about and explain.
I am 33 and I was born in a village called Dwarsberg. Being born here means that I have been in the bush for most of my life. I have been at TA for 18 months and before that I was an electrical assistant at a local mining company.
I am a really good cook and guests have been trying to get my braai chicken marinade recipe out of me for a while now. But that will always be my secret. I love interacting with guests and listening to the stories they share with us, it's awesome to meet people from all over the world.
I'm 18 years old and I was born in Giyane Limpopo. I joined the Tented Adventures family in October 2017 and am really growing to love the tourism industry, most of all I enjoy interacting with the guests, getting to know them and where they are from. I have a real passion for cooking and I'm sure in short time I will blow Benni's (See above) secret braai chicken marinade out of the water. When I'm not working on my cooking skills you'll find me nose deep in books as I study towards completing my teaching course with UNISA. I see myself growing much further in the tourism industry.
I am 28 years old and I was born in a village called Disake. I was working at a local supermarket and studying electrical engineering. And then I joined the Tented Adventures family, I am the most recent member of the team at the Pilanesberg camp and am so happy to be here. I have always wanted to work in the bush and this is my first experience of The Pilanesberg in the hospitality industry. I really enjoy meeting new people and interacting with them.
TA is the best place to work!
Originally a Benoni city boy, I was meant for the bush. I remember my first trip to the bush was when I was 5, and it's been in my blood ever since. I have been in the hospitality industry since for 17 years and worked at several game lodges prior to completing a course on Camp Management with Wild Campus, I then joined Tented Adventures in June 2017.
And I must say... I have the best job ever!
I have a passion for wildlife photography and I'm also a wannabe chef!
