The first of our try outs, is Noelle, She'll be taking this afternoons pm drive.
Here is a little more information about Noelle.

Noelle Dilorenzo is an American girl with an African heart. She was born in New Hampshire in the United States and gained a BA in Anthropology from the University of Montana. Soon after her studies had finished she headed to Africa to work as a volunteer in Tanzania as an aid worker with communities. She fell in love with the continent and has been here ever since. Between then and now she has worked extremely hard to become a qualified and professional guide. It is a hard industry to crack as a woman (especially if you are a foreigner) and Noelle's hard work has paid off. She started at Entebeni Nature Reserve, which is where Tara was before she joined Safari TV. They know each other well which shows how small the guiding community is here in South Africa. She quickly moved up the ranks at Entebeni and became assistant head ranger for one of their lodges. She decided to spread her wings and headed to a lodge in the Pilansberg where she continued guiding. Soon she moved to Kapama which is just outside of Hoedspruit and very close to the Sabi Sands. It was here that she met her partner Roel van Muiden. Roel is also an experienced guide and from Holland. Finally together they moved to Namibia to a small reserve called Erindi nature reserve, not far from where Pieter and Lieschen Pretorius are currently living. She was head guide trainer but unfortunately her training department was shut down and she is currently looking to join safari tv.
