BIOGRAPHY

JULIE CLARKE

 

I would describe myself in my previous life as a Corporate Banker as a pretty serious lady.  All that has changed… I now am pretty much a free spirit, sharing the splendours of the Cape with visitors from all over the world.  My office is the beautiful Mother City, the Winelands, Beaches and Mountains.

I am 40 something. I have two teenage boys and a husband and we live in Blouberg, close to the sea with pretty good views of Table Mountain.  I am self employed and when I give myself some time off you will normally find me on the golf course or walking with my sons and dog on the beach.

I do not specialize in any particular field of tour guiding but like to think of myself as a pretty well rounded generalist, I know quite a bit (I think) about most subjects and have a very good ‘local knowledge’ of just about anything anyone would like to know about our beautiful country.  Having grown  up in Johannesburg in the ‘old South Africa” and successfully negotiated the transition to the New South Africa, I can chat to visitors about the old and the new and what it is really like to live in South Africa.

I enjoy the outdoors, wine, food, and off course golf.  I like to read when I get a quiet moment.

Come, let‘s share the Splendours of the Cape together!
