walking with wollis
After running my own Construction and Project Management company successfully for 28 years, I found myself at an impasse and began to feel a strong sense that I wanted to do something that I was passionate about. I am a firm believer in change - albeit unsettling - and a new start in a completely different environment was knocking at my door.
After some contemplation and discussion with my girlfriend last year and a subsequent camping trip and hike in the beautiful Cederberg Mountains, for my 50th birthday celebration, I started a new journey, launched Walking with Wollis and signed up to study as a professional Cultural Tourist Guide.
Since qualifying and being registered for the Western Cape and surrounds – including the Cape Metropole, Breede River, West Coast, Winelands and Overberg regions, I now offer my services as a Cultural Tourist Guide.
Subsequently I have furthered my tourism studies to also include the Karoo region, Namaqualand, Garden Route, Port Elizabeth and the surrounding environment. At present I am also pursuing my studies in order to qualify as an Adventure Guide specialising in Mountain Hiking and Walks.
In my new entrepreneurial venture, Walking with Wollis, I will be offering various day trips, weekend getaways and extended tours.
I will also continue to offer day walks in and around Cape Town and Table Mountain National Park, offering both a cultural or environmental focus, depending on your preference .
I hope that our time together, exploring what the Western Cape has to offer, and the time spent in nature, will offer you a safe environment, and give you space away from your day to day lives and related stressors. It is my belief that a sense of positivity and wonder increase when we spend time outside, enabling us to be present and experience a deep sense of calm, improving our state of mind and that of our general health.
I am commited to offering you care, consideration and respect at all times, I am here to guide and support you, and to let Nature do the rest.
Who doesn't want their heart to smile? Let's go for an adventure together.......
