Private tour guide Razina

Razina M.

Durban, South Africa

Hi, I'm Razina, a passionate 'Durbanite', with the good fortune to have lived not just in Durban, but also other amazing South African cities, and outside of my beautiful country too.

Back in the city I was born and raised, after more than 10 years in Europe and Germany, I have renewed appreciation for both the city and country I love. The 'cultural melting pot', that is Durban truly is a unique and intriguing blend of East meets West meets Africa. . . Stir in a subtropical climate, lukewarm ocean lined with golden beaches, a laid back year round carnival atmosphere and countless amazing attractions on our 'doorstep' - big 5 Safari in Africa's oldest game reserve, the glorious Drakensburg mountain range, breathtaking natural scenery, the Zulu Kingdom, and more . . . - and you'll find we have something for everyone. There's just so much to explore! A qualified Exploration Geologist by profession, I'd love to help you explore this lovely part of the world - your very own adventurous voyage of exploration, discovery and delight.

My journey into tourism is itself something of an 'adventure'. I rather 'stumbled' into the field when I was called in to 'rescue' a Tour booked through a friends Tour Company when her German guide unexpectedly fell ill. But I so enjoyed the experience, it wasn't long before I took an accredited course in tourism and hospitality, and began guiding largely German speaking coach tours of up to 40 guests across southern Africa. Almost 2 years, hundreds of happy guests and tens of thousands kilometres later, I've chosen to apply my guiding experience to a more personalised tour - one tailor made for you.

An avid traveler, with an unquenchable 'Wanderlust' myself, I genuinely enjoy sharing 'my part of the World' with you, and learning more about you and yours. I understand we're all individuals, with varied needs, interests, (history, culture, culinary treats, nature, sports, action, adventure?), time constraints, etc. A private tour should provide a personalized experience tailor made for you. So whether you're traveling as a family, a couple, a large or small group, or on your own. . . . where ever you want to go and what ever you want to see. . . . which ever depth, breadth, pace of exploration best works for you. . . . let me help you make the most of your African adventure. I look forward to sharing with you an authentic slice of 'my home', and leaving you with new stories and memories to take back to yours.
