Meet the Biggestleaf Travel Team




I was always passionate about travel and tourism. It started at an early age where I spent a lot of time travelling around South Africa. I was particularly interested in wildlife and nature. Biggestleaf started out as a marketing company focused on the tourism industry. Biggestleaf Travel evolved from there. I keep looking for new innovative ways to do business in an industry that I’m passionate about.
Our work and company cultures are extremely important. We believe in investing in our staff; they’re our biggest asset. We believe in ethical values of integrity, honesty, fairness and respect and creating an open environment where staff can express themselves. We believe this will translate into a successful business relationship with our clients and suppliers. We also believe in embracing innovation and using that to deliver the best possible product and service to our clients.
Seeing the staff and clients empowered on all levels. Having a company that has grown and given opportunities to all walks of life. Seeing people experience positive change in their lives, a change that hopefully allowed them to experience many new things in life. Building a business that employees are proud to be a part off, having clients that keep coming back and suppliers that want to work with us. Getting positive feedback from clients and suppliers on their experience with Biggestleaf excites me and is huge motivating factor to keep getting better.


My family, Africa (yes, I know it’s a whole continent but what a continent it is!), travel and sharing a love for travel with my kids, coffee and excel (I’m a bit of a nerd) – in that order 😉
I’m the CEO’s wife (read: boss), so it was a natural choice! Jokes aside, I am so incredibly proud to be part of a company that is so focused on people, be it clients or staff. It feels like home to me.
I deal with everything numbers related and the all the legal stuff.
I am an analytical person and I love paying attention to the detail and my role requires just that.
Walking into the office and hearing the happy buzz from the team.

Marketing Manager

I am passionate about travel, innovation and bringing positive change to the world. I love exploring unfamiliar places, meeting new people and I love being able to share my experiences with others.
I chose Biggestleaf Travel because I can combine my passions and live them out to the fullest potential. I also love the ethos of the company, everyone gives their best to achieve maximum results – it’s really an environment I thrive in!
I am the marketing manager of the company and my role entails coordinating all the marketing activities and making sure that we get positive results.
I have always loved marketing and I enjoy the creativity and logical thinking it requires. Strategizing is a passion of mine, and I get immense satisfaction from being involved in a project from conceptualization to delivery.
Working with my team and having meaningful conversations and discussions.

Product Manager

I grew up travelling and still love it; making new memories and impressions. Africa, being home, has a special place in my heart, I feel the colours, animals and people of this continent have so much vibrancy, life and passion that it just drags you along for the ride and in between the vast spaces feed your soul.
At Biggestleaf I found a space for growth, innovation and people with a similar passion to mine, which makes the exchange so much more personal.
As a Product & Marketing Manager, I get to oversee contracting, maintaining relationship with current products and finding new ones, training consultants on these products, and negotiating specials for the company. I also work with the marketing team by providing them with product information and updates for our various campaigns.
Because travelling is a personal passion – works starts feeling less like work and more like keeping up with potential new holiday venues. I enjoy working with people who are passionate about a common goal, showcasing the best Africa has to offer.
The atmosphere is the office is great, I am lucky to have super colleagues. Happiness for me is when I can assist one of my colleagues or a client with a potential issue and we resolve it so that everyone walks away smiling or when I find a wonderful new gem to load to our product range.



Financial Manager

While I’m a numbers-orientated person, I’m also really active. I am passionate about sports and keeping fit so, in my downtime you’ll either find me watching a game or playing one. And then, of course, there’s the fluffy side of my personality that adores animals – so working for a travel company that specialises in wildlife safaris is a bonus!
The company centres itself around innovation and change. So, the potential to grow along-side such an exciting company really attracted me to the brand.
I’m responsible for reporting the finances and position of the company – but most people know me as the guy who makes sure everything, and everyone gets paid.
I have a love for numbers and analysing what they mean. I enjoy the challenge of working things out and verifying the daily checks and balances.
Getting the opportunity to improve on the work I have done the day before. I’m somewhat of a perfectionist like that!


I am a bit of an outdoor nut! I am incredibly passionate about pushing myself, staying active and enjoying being active outdoors
I live around the corner so no traffic is a great plus (wink), but what I loved the most, when I first arrived at Biggestleaf Travel, was the warm, open and inviting atmosphere Robyn and Robert had cultivated. It’s very easy to love your job when your team is so fantastic!
My position is Bookkeeper/Administrator.

I work closely with Robyn in doing all the invoicing of all bookings, reporting, creditor recons, payments and general administration functions. I guess you would say I’m better with numbers than words.

I have a passion for figures and enjoy organising things, I love being able to make a positive contribution to such a great company.
Opening the blinds first thing in the morning and looking at our gorgeous view of the mountain -it’s my absolute favourite!

Debtors Clerk

I’m passionate about my little boy, Logan who brightens up every day with his enquiring mind and sweet little comments. I’m so excited to introduce him to the world of travel and exploration!
I chose Biggestleaf because I liked the vibe and energy of this innovative company. Everybody seems to be on the same page; it’s great to work with like-minded people.
I’m the debtors clerk. I do everything related to debtors.
I love numbers and working within a team. I am a detailed orientated person and I love a challenge, so I feel very at home in my role here at Biggestleaf.
Opening the blinds in my office and seeing the view of the mountains in the morning – it’s truly a great space to work in!

Travel Consultants


Travel Consultant

I am passionate about art, animals and family. I try to live my life by dreaming big and working towards my goals.
I knew Robert from when I was still working at a different tour operator – long before Biggestleaf Travel existed. Although I was hesitant to change companies, I really enjoyed the fact that Robert was always eager to listen and give advice – he promoted an open-door policy. So, decided to move over to Biggestleaf Travel in the hopes of finding something ‘ever-lasting’. A company where you are respected, treated equally and listened to.
I mainly arrange packages for guests that dream of visiting Madikwe Game reserve or Pilanesberg National Park.
I enjoy working online and planning people’s holidays for them.
The best part of my day is dealing with happy clients.

Travel Consultant

I’m passionate about making a difference. When I’m involved with a project at work, I want to do my best to achieve success. I feel the same way about everything I do in my personal life. I always try to be a better person and to be happy and full of smiles and laughter.
My sister started working at Biggestleaf Travel 3 months before I started working here. Quina always came home smiling and raving about her fantastic place of work. I really wanted to be a part of such an awesome team that left one feeling so inspired and content – it didn’t take me long to request an interview with Robert.
I am a travel consultant for Pilanesberg National Park.

I sell various types of accommodation and also do transfers to and from the Pilanesberg.

I love the office banter and social environment in our office. We are encouraged to work hard but play hard too – it’s great working for a company that helps you find the perfect ‘balance’.

Travel Consultant

I love being in nature, birdwatching and taking long walks with my hubby and dog.
Robert approached me at a time when I was ready for a change and I couldn’t say no. I was excited to work at a growing company where I could sell the places I really love.
I am a senior consultant selling lodges in the Madikwe Game Reserve. I work well with the other products in our range and can help wherever I’m needed.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel throughout South Africa and know what a truly special place we live in – if I can help other people see just what I see I am happy.
I enjoy the camaraderie with my colleagues and when I deal with people who are excited to visit the places we sell.

I am passionate about travel, music, cooking, animals, quality time spent with friends and family and finding a good balance of all these special things.
I was referred to Biggestleaf Travel by a close friend of mine, she told me her awesome company was looking for a new consultant and well, here I am.
Our key role as travel consultants is to plan and book holidays for our clients so that they can effortlessly experience some of the most amazing holiday destinations our beautiful country has to offer.
Travelling through beautiful South Africa, and experiencing the bush are two things I feel everyone should have the chance to enjoy. I love being able to offer our guests the opportunity to see and experience everything that comes with being in the bush and our amazing country. From the delicious food and incredibly vast wildlife to the spectacular African sunsets, we sure do have it all.
As we spend most of our day at work, it is very important to me to have a great environment and team to work with – Biggestleaf Travel definitely has both of these. From the quirky office characters to our awesome coffee station, each day is a pleasant one.

I am passionate about family, the outdoors and the African Bush.
A friend told me about this amazing company and their amazing work ethic and values. When the opportunity arose, I couldn’t let it pass me by.
I assist clients with accommodation, transfers, game viewing activities and safari packages within the Pilanesberg National Park.
As I’ve been able to experience the amazing African bush, I wouldn’t be doing anything other than assisting everyone else to experience what I have. It’s totally indescribable until one has been there.
I love everything about my entire day. I love being busy and the amazing team work makes everyday worthwhile.

Social Media & Travel Writer

Travel! Africa! Travelling some more! One of the greatest feelings in the world is standing admiring something you’ve never seen before, and had you not adventured to that spot – you may never have seen at all! There is so much beauty and wonder to admire in the world!
There are elephant, leopard and rhino photos all over the walls of the office, hello! Working in a space that reflects an authentic ethos and working in a team with like-minded individuals made choosing Biggestleaf a no-brainer for me. But, also, elephants on the walls…
I’m the social butterfly of the brand! My days consist of likes, posts, comments, shares, tweets, reviews and writing – mostly about wildlife life – I love it!
Sharing is caring! I love the work we do here at Biggestleaf and I am very proud to work with such talented people – sharing the creations we come up with is something I am incredibly passionate about. We get to showcase one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and we do it well, it leaves me feeling like we’re a team of great ambassadors for South Africa.
The best part of my day must be sparking an engaging conversation on a social platform. So many people want to share their passion, pictures and past safari experiences with fellow bush babies – it’s so rewarding and often, very interesting.

Content & Travel Writer

Africa and all its secrets. The bush, the animals, the people, the culture. Africa runs through my veins.
Biggestleaf has unique innovations and fantastic ideas. They are looking at moving into the future rather than getting left behind. The people are genuine, and the boss passionate.
I write. I write things. I write all the things. And I love it. I write blogs, web content, social media posts, articles and more. Biggestleaf allows my creativity to flow – and I follow a project from concept to pitch to research to writing, and all the way to the final product.
I am able to put my passions to use, and to use them together. Writing inspires me, and writing about Africa fills me with passion. It’s a symbiotic relationship that keeps my creativity burning.
When I write my own original stuff, in my own voice, and get lost in the process as the words run away with me.

Junior Content Writer

My passion for people, nature and travel knows no bounds. I believe travel is the University of Life, it brings wisdom knowledge and admiration. Not only do I live for the experience, but I live to share these experiences. Using creativity to inspire and educate others about the unseen beauty of our world is where my true passion lies.
Everything is so green! Not only did I love the colourful and open atmosphere, there was an electric energy fused with ambition and passion that caught my attention immediately. I knew this innovative and creative space is where I could reach my full potential. I felt like a kid getting a pass to go to Disneyland every day!
I am the Junior content writer, so I write and write and write some more! I’m also a helping hand to those in need, I dabble between managing social media, writing blogs and coming up with new marketing strategies. This is literally my dream job…
I might not be the biggest socialite when it comes to real life, you know like face-to-face kind of stuff which can be tricky since I love interacting with people, but I found a happy compromise – writing. It might not be actual human interaction, but make no mistake writing leaves you just as exposed to the world as a conversation between people could. I love writing and I believe in sharing knowledge and passion to inspire others. Which is why I do what I do, for a company that believes in these values just as much as I do…
The best part of my day would be when I arrive at work. Feeling excited for the new day to begin and for the new challenges to overcome, knowing that my team is ready to teach me all I need to know and answer my every question – helping me to progress and becoming the best version of me.

Junior Product Assistant

My first passion these days is my little family. I strive to be the best mom and wife I can be, and I am working hard at raising respectable little humans.

I also love learning, expanding my knowledge is so important. As the saying goes “knowledge is power”. Meeting new people everywhere I go is also something I am passionate about – I love engaging and chatting to people about where they’ve been and the magic they’ve experienced along the way.

I was introduced to the company by a friend of mine who also works within the team. On arrival at the office, I instantly felt comfortable in the calm, the inspiring and happy environment that’s been created here.

It’s such a relaxed vibe that, right then and there I knew this would be my perfect new home away from home.

As a Junior Product Assistant, my role is to assist our product manager with anything product related including comparing products and details of other industry players to ensure our competitive edge.
I’ve always been interested in the tourism industry and the beautiful places that you get to see and discover at the various guesthouses, lodges and hotels. Then, of course, there’s the wildlife, oh the wildlife – I couldn’t ask for a more intriguing and beautiful field to work in! When your job is no longer “work” you know you have found exactly where you were meant to be.
I would have to say the best part of my day is mid-morning when I’m having my first cappuccino (pure joy) and we all in our work zone.

It’s nice a quiet, with that fresh breeze coming in from my window that’s overlooks the surrounding mountains – it’s pure peace and a very happy place for me!
