My passion for hiking started when I was 6 years old when my mom decided that it is a good idea to take a 4, 6 and 8 year old on the 5 day Fanie Botha hike (our very first hike), now most of you who have hiked the Fanie Botha 5 day trail knows that it is not the easiest hike but we finished it and only found out afterwards that the age limit for the 5 day is 12 years old, nonetheless that didn’t stop me from falling in love with hiking.My career in hiking also started right after high school with Komatiland Hiking Trails as the bookings lady and then from there on I moved onto Jacana Travel Marketing and Reservation, which now is Fagala Voet.I had the privilege to work alongside a hiking legend, Tim Harthwright (may he rest in peace), and Elize the wonderful soul who did the bookings for Jacana for more than 20 years. Tim taught me so much about hiking and the passion he had for hiking, nature and people was so contagious.I get asked the question a lot of where does Fagala Voet comes from. It comes from my dad. When we were little and we needed to go somewhere, he would always say Fagala Voet, which means we had to walk there.
