COLLIN VAN DYK - Founder Member

Collin  van Dyk has had a passion for wild life since his formative years. Having spent 38 years in the Corporate world of Banking, he retired at the end of 2006 to pursue his interest in Wildlife - and Eco Tourism in particular. Collin has wealth of  knowledge of South African birds - their calls in particular - indigenous trees (their medicinal attributes and folk lore) as well as a wide knowledge of the large a small mammals of the Southern African region.

His knowledge of the KwaZulu-Natal Game Reserves as well as the smaller lesser known remote private Game Reserves makes him an ideal Tour Guide and one from whom the average tourist will gain  new insights into our wildlife heritage. He also has a broad knowledge on the historical events of this country and is therefore well equipped to make your stay in South Africa one to be remembered.

Robyn (Collin's daughter) is married to a Game Ranger and lives in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, KwaZulu-Natal. Her interest in wildlife goes back to her early years, living in what was then known as Zululand, where she spent many of her her holidays, either in the local Game Reserves or in the Kruger National Park. She graduated from the University of Natal in 2000 having obtained a Bsc.degree in Agriculture - majoring in Wildlife Science.

Since marrying she has lived in the Mkhuze Game Reserve and Kosi Bay Reserve before moving to Hluhluwe Game Reserve in 2006. During her stay at Kosi Bay she ran private tours to the many places of interest in that area as well as fishing / snorkeling excursions to the Kosi Bay Estuary. She is an accomplished scuba diver and has a wide general knowledge of our local reef fishes and organisms.

Robyn is an experienced and fully qualified tour guide operator and has freelanced driving tourists around the various Game Reserves and Parks where she has lived.

Robyn is passionate about all wild life conservation issues and is exceptionally knowledgeable on our local bird life, Indigenous trees (she helped establish Hluhluwe Game Reserve's indigenous plant nursery) as well as the various large and small mammals of the region.
Although not actively involved in the day to day activities of the business, her advice, guidance and interpretation skills are invaluable, especially to clients using our services.
