Sophy, Lorraine, Tiny, Edward and Jack work at Sigurwana since many years. What would Sigurwana be without them? It is their friendliness, their laughter, their natural attitude which makes working with them a real joy. The way they look forward to the arrival of guests and welcome everybody in a truly warm hearted way, shows their lovely personalities. They add happiness and spirit to the Sigurwana family.
Sophy is the cook for hot meals. She has an amazing feel for the final “taste” and is proud of her creations.
Lorraine is responsible for breakfast which gives everybody a kick-start. Her baking is “out of this world” and her starters and deserts are something to remember.
Tiny has her own charm about showing the chalets to the guests, keeping them clean and attractive and being very reliable with the laundry service.
Jack and Edward support all works around the Lodge. They are early morning birds, responsible for hot water, a lovely garden and keeping an eye on the vegetable garden.
They help wherever they needed.
Patrick, David and Sunday are strong Venda men, working with us from the very beginning. They are the most reliable, humble working force in the reserve
They are all Venda people who make us truly proud.
The Manager and Head Ranger
what a privilege to be the only Ranger and driver in this remote Wilderness Reserve. I like to spend as much time as the guests want in the bush. Walking in such a unique reserve are part of the special experiences – it is the tranquillity which one never forgets.
A passion for life on the Magic Mountain
