Angie was fortunate to grow up in the cultural melting pot of Johannesburg and throughout her childhood visit the places that we all want to see in South Africa. On family holidays she reveled in escaping the city life and stepping into nature as she played amongst the boulders in the shadow of Cathedral Peak in the Drakensburg Mountains. Ahead of the curve, she would amble about Simonstown, Boulders Bay, and Camps Bay in Cape Town before they were the trendy neighborhoods they are today.
Angie’s love for wild animals and their environments was cemented as she climbed mountains, played on quad bikes and had her first driving lessons on a friend’s farm. Her family often hosted exchange students from far-flung countries like Brazil and Finland, and this inspired Angie to live in Sweden as an exchange student herself.
It seemed inevitable that Angie would study Travel & Tourism in Johannesburg, land a job at a prominent safari company and spend years expanding her safari knowledge and trip planning skills. When she embarked on a new adventure, moving her young family to Australia, she was a natural fit for Rothschild Safaris…lucky for us!
Our office couldn’t function without her keen organizational skills and calm delegation of responsibilities! Her new hometown on the Sunshine Coast makes her feel like she’s on holiday all the time and these days you can find her grabbing some sushi or a good glass of wine with her friends and family.
