The Isibindi Family

Kelly Coates

Operations Assistant

Nothing makes Kelly happier than being with family, walking barefoot, and having a clear filing system for everything in life.
With a diploma in travel and tourism, Kelly has extensive experience in and knowledge of “lodge life”, having worked and lived at several luxury establishments in South Africa. She spends her free time with her husband and son, and dreams up her next trip to the Kruger National Park.
Kelly has lived in Johannesburg, London, and Mpumalanga and currently calls Ballito home. She’s passionate about the bush, being outdoors with her feet in the grass, and working with like-minded people. With strong organisational and administrative skills along with a happy disposition, Kelly’s motto is “Everything must be quick and easy to find.”
In her spare time, Kelly enjoys being outdoors hanging out with her family. She also organises her Smarties by colour and eats them systematically.
