Having spent most of his teenage years travelling with family and studying Tourism in high school, Lance knew the travel industry was a natural fit. After graduating with a national diploma in Tourism, he began his career working for a South Africa based tour operator. Discovering his growing passion for luxury, conservation based safaris led him to Mahlatini. Lance thrives on being able to continually grow and develop alongside the African travel industry, and takes the opportunity to explore whenever he can.
MOST MEMORABLE TRIP
My most memorable travel experience has to be a safari in the Kruger National Park. The animal sightings were absolutely phenomenal, and I surprised myself by really enjoying birdwatching too.
My travel wish-list
It has to be gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda. Up there as one of the most iconic African experiences, it is top of my list for sure! I'd love to witness a mighty silverback in his natural habitat.
For me it's the Jaci's Sabi House. A unique and unforgettable experience, the environment is serene and offers a healing spirit. As nature is, you merge with it.
Favourite Safari Animal
Must be the gorilla. These animals are gentle and exhibit a variety of human-like traits, including laughter and sadness. One point that stands out for me is they are very adventurous, like when they dart around trees, hang from branches and vines, or roll down slopes. Fantastic animals!
The moment I received the email confirming my employment at Mahlatini. All of my friends in the tourism industry are jealous that I was picked, but I have to admit that I'm honoured to be a part of life's greatest journeys with the Mahlatini family.
