Alan has an amazing knowlegde of our region. His interest in history was sparked while as a young boy he roamed the family farm with his friends; fasicinated by the lives of those who had once lived in the ruins he came across on the farm.

His natural story telling talent has resulted in him being the winner of the following awards:

• 2005 winner of the prestigious SA Tourism’s Tour Guide of the Year
• 2006 the Grand Prix winner of the inaugural SA Tourism Welcome Awards as the best tourism product in the country.
