Le Quaf’s Private Guides
Do you balk at the thought of a tour group? Do you want more than a standard set of sights to see when travelling? Yes, we thought so, that’s why we’ve created Le Quaf’s Private Guides.
Ansie du Toit and Steven Andrews have joined the LQF family and will be available exclusively to our guests for bespoke experiences of our renowned valley and beyond…
Get to know our Private Guides:
Ansie du Toit
“Having grown up in some of the most renowned national parks of South Africa (think of the dusty plains of the Kruger Park with herds of zebra stalked by majestic lions, then The Tsitsikamma Forest of the Addo Elephant Park, with its citrus scented air and monarchical elephants) a lifetime of travelling and eventually being part of creating memories of our amazing country for others was inevitable”.
“My passion to impart knowledge and memorable experiences has never dwindled”.
“I grew up in South Africa during the apartheid era, the accounts of my youth and the phenomenal changes I have witnessed over the past two decades are tales that astound and intrigue visitors and locals alike”.
Steven does naturally gravitate to more active forms of travel and thus has been extensively involved in walking and bicycle trips (making him a great bicycle mechanic!).
“I have an eagerness and selfless dedication to ensuring guests have the best experience of our beautiful country”.
