Steve Meinhold

Born and raised in Cape Town, one of the world's most scenic cities, it is no surprise that Steve has a natural infatuation with the great outdoors. His love of the wilderness shaped his early career direction when he guided in various river locations across South Africa and Namibia. His quest for more adventure saw him spend 15 years overseas, which was a perfect base to indulge his love of travel and explore a diversity of regions and cultures.
