A German Zimbabwean Girl in an Infinitely Beautiful World
Hailing from Germany and growing up in Zimbabwe, I started doing safaris at a very young age.

The Viva South Credo
I’m a firm believer in dancing to the beat of your own drum. Instead of being a back-seat passenger in life by going along with what you see in media, grab that steering wheel and drive! It’s up to you to create your own unique experience based off of your values, perception, and innermost desires. And that’s what I’m here for… to inspire, empower, and encourage you to explore both your inner and outer world.
