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.

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.
