Annelee Steyn has a passion for hiking, botany, nature, camping and the great outdoors. She is also a wine teacher at the Cape Wine Academy. What a beautiful combination! She says, “I keep thinking about retiring but then yet another fabulous tour arrives on the horizon and I’m off again…” She is also passionate about South Africa’s rich diverse cultural background – the people, the politics, the languages, the history pre- and post-Colonialism and loves to share what she knows with travelers to her country. She speaks English in a most delightful accent, but her native language is Afrikaans (which is a form of Dutch) and is also currently learning Xhosa, the language spoken by the second largest ethnic group in South Africa. She’s been married to Pauncho for a zillion years and they have two grown-up daughters. Annelee is a guide on all Zephyr’s South African tours.
“Annelee was genuine and lovely to have as a guide and companion.”
“Annelee’s knowledge and warm style was a key asset to this [South Africa] trip.”
