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.


Sylvia Ledgard - Cape Bird Club

Mariana is an accredited tourist guide, with particular skills in the fields of birds, birding and botanising in the Western Cape.

My association with Mariana is through the Cape Bird Club's links with Tygerberg Bird Club, our "sister club" in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. Mariana is currently the Chairman of this club and has carried the position with distinction for several years.

Eco-Information on the Western Cape, South Africa.
Eco-tourism has become the buzz-word in tourism. Eco-tourism is not only about taking tourists into remote nature areas. My tours will take you into nature too, but with the emphasis on the entire ecology and conservation of such areas. Taking only individuals or small groups of tourists into protected areas will minimize the impact on the environment, and will give us the opportunity to share in the wonders of nature. Eco-tourism is also about social responsibility.

Visits to rural areas will benefit these communities. By benefiting the local people from tourism, they will want to preserve what is precious to them and to us. Many of my tours will take you to the country side, where you will meet and interact with the local people, sharing in their pride of our beautiful region.
