Junior Assistant Manager
(& Wine Master)
Mendoza is such a special soul at Qambathi. He walked down our driveway looking for work a couple of days after we took over the lodge and his smile and sincerity quickly crawled into our hearts. Mendoza very quickly progressed from gardener through general assistant to front of house and now he is our brand new assistant Manager, whilst still our front of house.... oh and Mendoza is still our wine expert. Make sure you ask for the details of what has grown to be know as “Mandoza story” next time you stay at Qambathi.
Nhlanhlo is definitely a Magic Maker at Qambathi. If you ever wondered who set up your room so beautifully for your romantic arrival or who is a master at romantic turndown look no further! Nhlanhlo also known as Shosho for those of us who struggle with our Zulu pronunciation is also an assistant to the chef- but we do keep her away from the chilli as she grew up in Durban and sometimes thinks we can all take the heat.
We are excited to welcome Siân to the team as Stud Manger. Siân has years of experience developing young horses as well as heading up a very successful trail business. She was a natural fit for the stud with her passion and wealth of equine knowledge. Watch this space as we develop our horse trails with more options whilst at the same time keeping to our core values of natural horsemanship and breeding the best possible horses.
