Why did you join Western Cape Women in Tourism?

I joined Women In Tourism Western Cape in 2018 to introduce more women to the sector. I am highly focused on promoting equality and helping youth to find a sense of purpose. This organisation gives me the tools and support I need to achieve just that and I am so passionate about the work we do.


What are your top-3 must-do activities when visiting or exploring the Western Cape?

I highly recommend visiting the Winelands trails in Paarl, the Outeniqua Family Market in George or Cape Point Vineyards.
