Ann MacGregor - Tourist Guide

I have known Mariana Delport for about four to five years. I met her when I became a member of the Tygerberg Bird Club where she is the Chairman.

She is not only an expert in this field but a wonderful leader of the club, which has a happy and relaxed atmosphere. The outings and meetings are very well run and the members enthusiastic and keen to share their expertise.


Mariana is also a keen gardener and "fynbos" enthusiast. She runs an article in the club magazine called "Gardening for Birds" where she not only discusses a relevant plant and the birds it attracts, but also gives suggestions on how to propagate it and grow it in one's own garden.

She has recently completed a tour guide course and together with her years of experience working for a large insurance company, her many interests, organisational skills, and her ability to relate well to people, I have every reason to suggest that she will make an excellent guide.

The Cape Floral Kingdom is by far the smallest of the six Floral Kingdoms of the world, comprising less than 0.5% of the earth's land surface, and just under 4 % of Southern Africa's surface.

Fynbos, meaning 'fine-leafed bush', comprises 80% of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The remaining 20% are made up of Renosterveld, Succulent Karoo and Afromontane forest.
