Sonja started her career in lodge management but quickly realised that she longs to be in nature, not behind a desk. In 2017 she joined the Namibia-Experience team as tour guide. Born in northern Namibia, Sonja then grew up in the Waterberg Region. Most of her childhood days were spent in the great outdoors, exploring Namibia together with her family. Today, sharing her love for her home country with our guests is what makes tour guiding such a rewarding experience for her. In addition to her in-depth knowledge of Namibia’s flora, fauna and history, her accommodating and hands-on character as well as her extensive experience in Namibian travel make her a favourite amongst our guests.
Sonja speaks English, German and Afrikaans.
