“I started working at Singita Lebombo in September 2010. During this time I was nominated for employee of the month numerous times, and won it twice. In 2014 I was voted as the “employee that goes the extra mile”. I worked as Assistant Head Driver for almost three years, while also working as the Airwing. I really enjoyed meeting the guests and seeing them off before they headed home. Most weeks I did the banking trip to Skukuza and was proud of the trust that accompanied this trip, as it included financial responsibility as well as dropping off/collecting guests at Skukuza airport.  I also filled in for the Head Driver when he was on leave by doing the shopping trip to Nelspruit.

Since 2010 I have really enjoyed my job and working with everyone at Singita Lebombo. It was a sad day when John Mangane decided to retire, but it left some opportunity for me to grow within my department. I applied for the Head Driver position and was very happy to know that I was successful.

I am grateful to Singita for this opportunity and I plan to ensure that all drivers fulfil their job profile and I want to lead by example”.
