Entrepreneur | Tourism Industry Expert | Community Developer

With a passion for tourism and a drive to succeed, I've built a career spanning over three decades. Born in KZN and schooled in Durban, I began my journey in the restaurant industry at 17. By 21, I founded Rave Vacation Tours, pioneering inbound tourism to South Africa.

After selling my business and exploring Europe and Canada, I returned to South Africa and ventured into events management with Entertainment 101 and Vegas Nights.

In 2003, I acquired La Dolce Vita Guesthouse, transforming it into an Italian-styled lodge. My entrepreneurial spirit led me to launch Sunday Lunch boat cruises in 2014 and build my first boat, Toro Ya Me, in 2016.

Despite the challenges of Covid-19, I persevered and expanded my fleet with The Alba in 2022. Today, Harties Harbour offers three commercial passenger vessels, daily cruises, and a beach cafe.

Community Involvement:

I'm dedicated to socio-economic development and actively participate in initiatives to maintain and clean Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding areas. I also promote our destination at trade shows, aggressively marketing Hartbeespoort and Magaliesberg to local and international markets.

Key Achievements:

  • Founded Rave Vacation Tours (1991)
  • Established Entertainment 101 and Vegas Nights (events industry)
  • Acquired and renovated La Dolce Vita Guesthouse (2003)
  • Launched Sunday Lunch boat cruises (2014)
  • Built and launched Toro Ya Me (2016) and The Alba (2022)
  • Expanded Harties Harbour to three commercial vessels and a beach café

And now a proud Member of Route24 Tourism SA & I sit on the board of Route24.
