Learn more about Alfred's life experiences

Alfred Ramolefo

When Madi a Thavha Mountain Lodge became operational in 2004, Alfred worked as the ‘voorman’ on the farm, organising all farming operations. After he came in contact with the first tourists visiting Madi a Thavha he became a qualified tour guide. Alfred facilitates tours by car or on mountain bike to Thioswi, one of the villages along the Soutpansberg Mountains. He takes visitors to the chief, a village school, the homesteads of his family, the Sangoma and the local shebeen. He talks about his Northern Sotho background from own experience and from the heart. 
Alfred is also qualified to support people who like to explore the Elim area, visit the local markets, shops and the artists and crafters in the villages.
