Growing up in South Africa, Riana spent holidays exploring the famed Kruger National Park and many of Southern Africa's game reserves. It was here that her passion for Africa and its people was born. After completing her school career, Riana studied Psychology at the University of Stellenbosch followed by a diploma in Fashion Design. Over the following decade Riana developed a keen eye for detail and all things stylish through her work as an Ops Manager and Fashion Designer with some of the leading fashion companies in South Africa.
This ability combined with her passion for people is put to good use as she goes about in search of the best properties with the finest service for our clients. A year after a whirlwind romance with future husband Greg, Riana packed up her city life (and high heels) and traded the bright lights for star-filled nights, and has since spent 10 years working in the travel and safari industry, taking care of all international marketing and managing some of Africa's most refined properties where discerning and well-travelled client's needs and desires were exceeded with meticulous attention to detail.
