The Team

Pieter Geldenhuys

Luxury Safaris Founder & Owner

PG calls Cape Town home, loves the Garden Route and regularly escapes to the bush for his safari fix. Good safari is like good wine – the more you taste the good stuff, the more you want. He would love to introduce you to your first South African safari experience -which for some, is a once in a lifetime. But for many others? Just the beginning…

Sofie Otto

Tour Consultant

Sofie left her native Berlin in 2010 for South Africa and the Football World Cup. Liked it so much she stayed, completed her Btech: Hospitality Management degree and in 2014 she augmented her hotel experience at the Hilton, by becoming an invaluable part of the team! Sofie deals with quite a few of our operator clients plus the luxury safaris. Peru is next on her to-do travel list…


Imogen McCormick-Matthews

Tour Facilitator

Imogen is half bush baby, half city slicker. She is half English half South African. She is, however, fully committed to amazing client services and maximizing the best of the bush with the Cape Town experience. Her time at Kariega private game reserve has brought a valuable element to the already rock star Luxury Safaris consulting team.

Bianca Smith

Tour Faciliator

Bianca’s stellar report card as one of our top tour guides is eclipsed by her consulting efficiency. She has worked in almost every part of the business, and currently sorts out PG’s admin, house sits Obi when needed and works our complicated itineraries like a pirate ninja. Don’t let her youth fool you – this lady knows her business.

Richard Tuswa 2Richard Tuswa

Specialist Culture Guide

Richard’s thoughtful introduction to his home town of Langa has been wowing our guests for years. These days he brings his particular perspective to our city and Cape Peninsula Tours as well.

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 2Jarred Vosges

Tour Guide

Jarred has been racking up rave reviews on Tripadvisor since he joined the team in 2014. Jarred brings his sunny personality and natural charm to the Cape Town experience.

He has an an amazing knowledge base on flora and fauna, courtesy of all those years spent as a safari guide at one of the top reserves on the Garden Route. If you’re lucky he’ll organize one of his epic braais for you!




The Luxury Safaris Team Mascot is strong with the force.
