John Nieuwoudt joins Shayamanzi

I grew up in Cape Town and caught my first geelbek weighing in at 10 kg in Gordons Bay aged 6. My uncle had to reel it in.  I’ve been hooked ever since!!

My biggest Tiger was caught in July this winter, with a special (rather than special what kind of lure) lure I bought in Cape Town, 1. 7 kg.

My career has seen me hold a variety of challenging and exciting positions in the hospitality industry both in South Africa and abroad.  I have many stories to tell and love hosting our guests and exchanging tales of travel adventures.
