MEET THE TEAM
at Umkhondo

HEIN (Founder of Umkhondo)
Hein will join you during your stay to do specific training and courses.

He has 13 years experience in wildlife and conservation and gladly shares his knowledge and experience.

Hein is also the lecturer for the veterinary course and will be present the whole duration of the Vet course.

KIM (Director)
Kim managed the program from the start in 2009 to 2016 and has handed over her title as mother of the house to Madre, while she spends more time with her children.

Kim is a qualified nurse, as well as a trained field guide, and does wildlife infant rearing when needed.

Kim also still deals with enquiries, bookings and pre departure support, develops and maintains work standards.

MICHAEL (Director and Facilitator at times)
Michael has joined Umkhondo as a volunteer a few times during the past years and during this time gathered extensive knowledge of the program. He has also completed a course in approaching dangerous animals on foot.

He will be working with you on certain days and also ensure that all the logistics of day to day operations run smoothly.

MADRÉ (Director)
Madré has been a very close friend to Hein and Kim for more then 10 years. She has also worked at the Garden Route game lodge since its beginning and shares our love for the reserve and its animals.

Madre studied tourism and has been organizing functions and weddings and helping us at Umkhondo, and we have decided to make her an official part of theUmkhondo family. Her organizing and problem solving skills are amazing as is her attention to detail. She is the mother of the house and will make sure it becomes your home away from home, as well as providing meals and helping with daily plans.

VICKI (Senior Facilitator)
Vicki is our newest member, her bubbly personality immediately drew our attention as well as her passion to learn more about protecting what has become so important to us.

Vicki is also a graphic designer and great at capturing efforts done by volunteers to provide them with photo’s and video’s of their time spent with us.

Vicki has the ability to “merge” all the volunteers from different country’s and back grounds to create friendships that will last a lifetime.


When I drive around on the reserves I can see where every single enthusiastic volunteer has left his or her mark and made their contribution to the community, the land and the inhabitants within.

Hein Schoeman
Founder of Umkhondo
