The Team

Pieter Geldenhuys

Luxury Safaris Founder

PG’s 20 years+ in travel and tourism has served him well in combining amazing tour guides and ground operations in Cape Town with quality lodges and partners in Kruger, Victoria Falls and the Eastern Cape. His motto is underpromise and overdeliver, and working directly with clients helps him and his team to put those personal touches on your dream holiday. Loves the Cape Town Seafood!

Bianca Smith

Team Leader: Luxury Safaris Reservations

Bianca’s stellar report card as one of our top tour guides is eclipsed only by her consulting efficiency. She has worked in almost every part of the business, and her current duties include team leader for Luxury Safaris, HR and she still gets time to do the banking.  Favourite spots for a luxury getaway: Grootbos and Narina Lodge, Lion Sands.

 

 

Imogen McCormick-Matthews

Kruger, Vic Falls, Eastern Cape Safari, Namibia

Imogen is only half South African, the other half English. She is half bush baby, the other half city slicker. She is, however, wholly committed to providing amazing client service and creating tours that maximize the best of the bush coupled with the Cape Town experience. Her time at Kariega private game reserve made her a valuable asset to enhance the already legendary Luxury Safaris consulting team. Not afraid to go for a walk in the middle of the Kruger.

Monade van Eeden

Kruger, Vic Falls, Garden Route 

Monade brings extensive hospitality experience to the Luxury Safaris team, as she ran a boutique guest house before joining us. She loves arranging staff breakaways to glamorous destinations, and her attention to detail has made her invaluable to the business. Favourite part of the job: making up treats for our clients to receive on arrival. In love with the massages at Thorntree lodge on the Zambezi.

 

Caren Rossouw

Sabi Sands, Sanbona Safari, Long Stay and Groups

Caren’s quiver of arrows includes an impeccable work ethic, a naturally caring nature and an ageless grace that has delighted her clients since she joined Luxury Safaris in 2014. Caren loves investigating and exploring new destinations, and relishes the challenge of an exotic request. Favourite spot in the winelands: Franschhoek.

Richard Tuswa

Tour Guide

Richard’s thoughtful introduction to his hometown of Langa has been wowing our guests for years. He has conquered some major obstacles to be one of our trusted allrounders.

When Richard isn’t on tour with us he spends as much time as possible with his family, and in particular the apple of his eye – his daughter!

Jarred Vosges

Tour Guide

Jarred has been racking up rave reviews on Tripadvisor ever since he joined the team in 2014 with his sunny personality and natural charm.

He has an amazing knowledge of flora and fauna, courtesy of many years spent as a safari guide at one of the top reserves on the Garden Route. He also knows his way around the winelands pretty well…

 

Ricardo Kruser

Driver & Tour Guide

Ricardo does all of our airport transfers, day driving assignments and helps with vehicle logistics around the office. Dependable and an old pro, he is has been in the game for ages. Not a spot in the greater Cape Town peninsula that he doesn’t know about…
