Vincent Soate

Hi There, my name is Vincent. I am a field guide and registered with FGASA in 2009.
I was born in Hammanskraal, May 22, 1990 .
The white rhino is my favourite animal.
The peace and quite, sharing nature and the experiences with guest makes guiding worth it’s while.
I invite you to join us on a game drive and Safari, and if you did I trust it was a great experience!
