Cycling through the desert, canoeing rapids, sand boarding dunes, zip-lining forests, she has done it all, and where Louise goes others want to follow……..if they’re brave enough!
Originally from Zimbabwe, Louise started her career in Tourism at the Kruger National Park in South Africa. She has since expanded her knowledge and experience of tourism in various fields including Car Hire, Air Charter, Lodge Management, Wholesale and Retail, Tour Operator and Marketing.
It was her love for nature and adventure, and of course Africa, that led her to establishing New African Frontiers in Namibia.
Louise’s intimate knowledge and understanding of Southern Africa and the tourism industry, together with her passion and dedication to service excellence, are reflected throughout the company and echoed in the feedback from clients.

Like the rest of her colleagues Alice has also travelled extensively overseas and explored across borders; but still chooses this side of the world!
“I’m not a keen sportsman but a very good sport.” Known as the office comedian; Alice will light up your day and make you laugh out loud. Her clients quickly become friends as she is ferociously dedicated to taking care of her ‘guests’. Alice loves entertaining friends and family with brilliant dinner parties, and this creative flair along with her enthusiasm and welcoming warmth endears her to all.
ALICE SAYS: “There is a German song that says: “Once the Namibian sun burns into your heart, you’ll never want to leave.” (and believe me – it shines everyday with all its might!) . The most fascinating about this country is how “a whole lot of nothingness” all around can be soooo stunning!!"
Whether you enjoy the warmth of the campfire or the luxury of superb accommodation, New African Frontiers offers something for everyone, and Alice will help you make those dreams come true!

WHY I LOVE NAMIBIA...."I love Namibia because of its endless beauty and the way it can bring you to a complete standstill with its “ahhh” moments. Moments of silence where you are reminded to smile, appreciate and be grateful for everything you have."

We understand that a safari guide is one of the most important factors to a successful safari. All our guides are therefore qualified professionals with an in-depth knowledge and passion for their specific country or region and field and have the ability to convey this to our guests.
