Leadership seems to unfold organically in nature, with animals inherently understanding being guided by those with wisdom collected over time. Many a group follows a female figure head, an indisputable position of authority. Both male and female leaders have their strengths, however there is an innate knowledge and comprehension of survival and protection deep set in the female senses.
Such distinctive leadership qualities come naturally to Jenman African Safaris Guide, Chantel Van De Linde. In a highly male-dominated profession, Chantel has forged her way as an unequivocal professional in the guiding arena, accumulating miles and expertise throughout Southern Africa.
In episode two of our Safari Guide Chronicles, Chantel speaks to CEO Katja Quasdorf about establishing her name in the guide world, building trust and confidence with clients as well as her love for Africa; a passion emanated in her stories of expeditions over the last 18 years.
