My Story – Brenda Dornbrack

Join us as we tell you… 

I am a qualified registered National Tourist Guide for South Africa( registered to guide in all 9 provinces) guide reg no: WC8777 with specialities in the Western Cape, Cape Town Environment and Cape Wine Industry. I have a small tour company called Dornbrack travel and compile tours around the Western Cape, Cape Town and surroundings, with guides in Gauteng who do the tours for me in and around Johannesburg. I have lived in South Africa for all of my life and have been very interested in the history and culture of our country and enjoy sharing my knowledge with other people.

I enjoy working and compiling different tours and itineraries to suit the individual and can work out a special tour to suit my traveller’s request. The routes that I use will show my guests different aspects of the countryside and also certain points of interest. Most of my tours include an authentic cultural experience from the places we visit the food you indulge in, ‘experience the heart and soul of Africa’. Each experience tells a story of Africa and its diverse heritage, culture, natural wildlife and beauty.

I enjoy the amazing response that is shown from the tourist when they see the diverse wildlife and the awe-inspiring moments of cultural tribal dance, it is such a pleasure to share those moments and know they will definitely take these splendid memories back home with them, and to be part of that is just amazing! The best part of being a local guide is conducting a private tour which is so personal and you will feel more comfortable if you have more insight about the guide before going on the tour with them. My tours are family orientated and I will compile a tour to suit you and your families interests. Come and discover the treasures that are part of the world has to offer and let me take you on a journey to experience ” THE ESSENCE OF AFRICA” with a local guide!

    They are pretty good!

    Our day excursion with Brenda was thoroughly enjoyable travelling up the Western Coast from Cape Town to Paternoster, a delightful charming fishing village with lots of character and beautiful views, with stops along the way. Brenda obviously loves being a tour guide, and is very knowledgeable in all aspects about South Africa. We look forward to the next excursion with her!

    Our daughter and her friend arrived in Cape Town after having their Semester at Sea cancelled. They only had one day in town before heading home, and with only one day notice Brenda stepped in and gave them a beautiful tour. Brenda made their short time in Cape Town magical and sent them home with smiles on their faces wanting to come back for more. We will surely make our way to Cape Town, with our daughter and son, and will be contacting Brenda to plan a tour for the whole family.

    Brenda did a great job arranging tours to meet our specific requirements. Her knowledge and flexibility in meeting our requests were much appreciated. Highly recommended!

    We feel most fortunate to have chosen Brenda as our guide during our 3 day visit to Cape Town. Steeped in the history and culture of the region, she designed and executed a tour plan that gave us a varied and rewarding introduction to the Area. And, importantly, she was at all times affable and accommodating.

    We had a great tour with Brenda on the garden route. Beautiful drive through mountains, and coastline. She was quite willing to accommodate us when we wanted to change the schedule. Nice and interesting accommodations. Thankyou Brenda!
