Andre Kruger

General Manager - Thonga Beach Lodge

Andre is a true child of Africa…he started his career in tourism and hospitality in the early 90’s when he became a whitewater raft guide on the mighty Zambezi in Victoria Falls. From there, the progression into the safari industry was natural and as a walking safari guide in the Kruger National Park he honed his bush skills eventually accumulating over 25 000 hours on foot in dangerous game areas. He has managed lodges and guided in a few of the iconic safari areas in Southern and East Africa, The Serengeti, Lower Zambezi Valley, Western Zambia and of course his namesake Park…the Kruger. Andre has a diverse skill set and loves the ocean. He has raced in the Cape To Rio Yacht race and holds a Master of Yachts skippers ticket and has represented Zululand and The State Presidents Team in Rock and Surf Angling.
A true naturalist, who’s passion is showcasing the beautiful destinations our country has to offer. He says…’Thonga Beach is right up there…with the top destinations of Africa’, and I am very proud to be a member of the Isibindi Family’
