Am a freelance tourist guide been doing tours for over five years. I studied tourism at the university and so passionate about nature and wildlife, and about using tourism as a tool for conservation and restoration. I volunteer with the Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve as a conservationist ensuring the restoration of indigenous tree species and extending the forest cover. No wonder it's at this place i normally meet with the people i walk around.

Robert führte uns durch Schleichwege durch die wunderschöne Gegend der Kraterseen umd den Nkuruba See. In einer Familiären Atmosphäre konnten wir den Prozess des Kafferöstens mit anschliessender Degustation erleben. Wir können die Tour wärmstens weiterempfehlen.
