Karin Belo - Tour Guide

I fell in love with the West Coast and the beautiful lagoon in Langebaan 5 years ago on my first visit.  Since then, we spent our December holidays visiting every wine farm, bay and estuary and lost my heart here in the process. I still pinch myself every day to think that I may now call this stunning area  my home. I have had a life-long interest in history and that was what brought me here because in a way this is where it all started for South Africa (long before Jan van Riebeeck) I might add.  My second passion is travelling and I worked and travelled in the United Kingdom before returning home to South Africa. Since then, I have travelled to Egypt, Israel, most of Europe, Dubai and have done some amazing hikes namely the Camino do Santiago in Spain. I just love the outdoor lifestyle and in particular hiking trails such as the Fish River Canyon, Dolphin Trail and the Cape Biosphere Trails.  I have a passion for shipwrecks and have embarked on an open water diving course.  Nothing beats a mountain bike ride on all the beautiful trails here on the West Coast but my favourite remains the SAS Saldanha Nature Reserve especially during spring time when spectacular flowers are in bloom.

I am a qualified tour guide and owner/operator of Azul Coastal Tours and Transfers (Pty) Ltd which is a registered company.  I also have a Tour Operating licence (OLB 1863408/0). I prefer to keep my tours as a freelance guide small and intimate. It is my sincere intention to give you, my guest the same “Wow” experience that I had when I first came to the West Coast. Together we will experience the rugged beauty that takes your breath away.
