Finance has always been a big part of Nokulunga's life, from teenage days spent earning pocket money in her father's business. Nokulunga attributes her success in finance to her accounting teacher, who encouraged her to transform her love of numbers into a career. Nokulunga joined Mahlatini with 6 years of accounting experience and is currently studying Forensic Accounting at North-West University, South Africa. One thing Nokulunga loves about finance is that the rules always stay the same, however the travel industry keeps her on her toes as she works with a variety of currencies from around the globe.
MOST MEMORABLE TRIP
My mind traces back to an incredible experience in Gansbaai, Pearly Beach, which is home to a colony of beautiful African penguins. I was fortunate to experience life with the penguins for one day while the local sharks circled silently below.
My travel wish-list
My wish-list destination is Botswana, the origin country of my ancestors. Every time someone travels to Botswana, they are lost for words when trying to recount their experience. The beauty and magic of the country leaves even the most experienced explorer speechless.
My favourite lodge is andbeyond's Sandibe Okavango safari lodge in Botswana. I am a nature girl at heart, and there are two reasons I would love to stay here; to enjoy the exceptional game viewing, and to indulge in the opulent cuisine.
Favourite Safari Animal
With 7 dogs at home, it is fair to say I am a dog person. My favourite safari animal is undoubtedly the African wild dog. Their pack mentality reminds me of family, and if you stick together then no threat is too big. My favourite saying is "umntu ngumntu ngabantu", meaning a person is a person through other people. Dogs need their pack, like people need other people.
It has to be the phone call I received from Gary saying, "Noks we would like to offer you the job". In that moment I knew I had made the right choice and could not wait to begin my career with Mahlatini. I know there will be many great moments to come, however that will always be the best.
