Pierre Coetsee, from South Africa, joined our Career Course, completely turning his life around, he now works as a guide at Lion Sands Game Reserve and is loving every minute.
“I come from a fast paced, high pressure working environment and chose a career path that always interested me and would offer a fulfilling life with more meaning and wonderful experiences. MORE Field Guide College was a true experience and a steppingstone for me into the guiding career path. I would like to acknowledge the team for the experience you have given me and the support throughout my life’s journey.
My placement at Lion Sands Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand with River & Ivory Lodge was the best experience I could have ever asked for. I was really honoured to have been chosen for this because I have a true love for the Greater Kruger National Park.
The people there welcomed me with open arms, and they truly are a family. From meeting all the people at different departments to the field guiding team that absolutely blew my mind! I knew this was where I belonged and needed to prove my worth to the team at Lion Sands, MORE Family Collection.
I applied for a position as a guide and was lucky enough to be chosen to be a part of the guiding team. I am excited to continue following my passion and love for nature and to guide to the best of my abilities. I would like to thank every single person for your guidance and believing in me and giving me this opportunity to fulfil my dreams.”
