Spotlight on: Marius Zeilinga

Marius Zeilinga

I have a very big passion for the bush. As soon as I realised that, I went to the Limpopo Field Guiding Academy. I went on training to be a proper field guide, and to learn all the necessary information about the bush. Soon after that I got the position as Field Guide at HESC, and that was the beginning of my journey.

When I take guests out to experience my passion, it is more of a thrill for them because I will show and tell them as much as I possibly can, with a smile and hope that they will enjoy it as much as I do every day. My aim is to give people the best experience ever in the hope that they will bring more friends next time, and spread the word on the great work that HESC does.

Building up experience is one thing, but to enjoy it every day while doing it is another. HESC is a great place to start, and working with so many different types of people each day gives me the chance to improve my people skills greatly.
