Iynette, war eine super guidin die unsere Gruppe mit sehr großem Elan auf den Berge gebracht hat. Siehst uns auf der IINDIAN VENSTER Route (sehr zu empfehlen da abwechslungsreich, interessant und etwas sportlich) mit Infos über das Land, Flora+Fauna sowie der Geschichte des Landes auf dem Laufenden gehalten. Wir haben sogar den Rückweg mit ihr zu Fuß erledigt da uns anschließend in der Cable cabin zu überlaufen war. Gerne jederzeit wieder mit ihr.
