Guide Profile: Henco Bantjes
Henco Bantjes grew up in Bloemfontein in the Orange Freestate of South Africa. He studied in an area of South Africa known as the “Lowveld” where he completed the EcoTraining course affiliated with FGASA. He has been working at Erindi since July 2009 as a guide and he is currently working towards completing his LEVEL 2.
Henco takes game drives and thoroughly enjoys photography but he also has a special interest in projects running on Erindi and he spends a huge amount of his time getting involved in the ecology of the reserve and management of all the game.
Henco takes CHEETAH WALKS & BUSHMAN ART WALKS and is known to have “good knowledge of everything”!
Actively working with the CCF (Cheetah Conservation Fund), Henco was also involved with the rehabilitation of the new cheetahs brought to Erindi by the CCF. Read more about it here: http://www.erindi.com/coco-chanel-and-the-chocolate-sisters/
In his free time Henco likes to take his motorbike for a ride through the bush & together with Ruan, the reserve ecologist – a great deal of game management occurs while these red & white Honda’s are in the field!
