At All Out Africa, there are many things that set us apart. One of them is our fantastic team! That’s why we decided it was time to sit down with our staff and have them answer a few fun questions about why they love what they do!
Today we are chatting to Adriaan Begemann, our Kruger Operational Manager, Adriaan love taking photos and an adventurous person, which is a great fit for what he does! Find out more below.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
Going to the Kruger National Park to do safaris.
Meeting new people and learning about their culture.
When was a time you thought to yourself “wow, I love what I do!”
Every time an animal, like lion, leopard, elephants or any animal walks by right next to my vehicle.
When I see a new place or experience something new and exciting.
Where is your favourite local hang out?
Home or Kruger National Park/ Lower Sabie.
What is your favourite wild animal and why?
They are the biggest cat in the Kruger National Park, and having one of these walks by your vehicle, where it is so close you could touch it, is the most incredible feeling and experience ever.
Their eyes are so intimidating and looks like it was made in hell, but the adrenaline rush you get is incredible.
When you’re not changing the world, what do you do for fun?
I love taking photos or travelling locally, doing all sorts of adventures.
When you wake up in the morning what do you look forward to most?
Seeing my dog Kruger and enjoying a cup of tea.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
If you were on a tour with All Out Africa which tour would you sign up for? (and why?)
Kruger overnight safaris.
Because it is simply the best place in the world, with the best guides from All Out Africa (Adriaan & Ruben).
I love the Kruger National Park as I used to go to the Kruger with my grandparents and parents since I was a small kid. Reminds me of some great holidays.
