Tammy Baker: I have an Honours degree in Physiology from North-West Physiology. After my studies I found myself in a sales position working for a private University. Being a people’s person I continued in sales management for a number of years before I started working as a fundraiser for The EWT. I grew up in a family that loves Africa and loves to travel. I still have that love. I am an avid birder and travel to the bush as often as I can.
Antony Wannell: From 1990 to 2017 I spent 27 years building entrepreneurial trading businesses. I have worked in the supply chain to the Tourism and Building Materials Sector and spent much of my time travelling for work into some of the most beautiful African Wilderness areas, including: Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, DRC, Zambia, Namibia and Malawi. I started a new entrepreneurial journey two years ago. A big part of what I do at the moment is to share my experiences through conversations, consulting, investment and mentorship. My vision is to create a real entrepreneurial thirst for driven Africans. I have a student accommodation business Wildoke and a commercial property business R25 Properties. My current project i am focusing on is Skylo its a treehouse based project
Skylo is a purpose driven tourism project focusing on developing Entrepreneurs in marginalized communities. We have an ambitious but realistic goal to curate 100 south African sites thereby creating 100 entrepreneurs who in turn will create more than 1500 jobs in the next 3 to 5 years.
Tammy Baker: Nothing major. Provincial colours for showjumping, school colours for athletics and netball.
Antony Wannell: I have never been sporty but recently have started running and have done 2 Oxpeckers the Birchwood half and the 3 day Namaquaquest
Tammy Baker: As a fundraiser for the EWT this is a prefect way to raise funds for conservation to not only support our conservation work, but to support the great work that WACT and KZN Ezemvelo are doing. The Underberg is such a beautiful area of our country and we are grateful to Sprug, Matt and Running Man Adventures for all of their efforts in raising funds to conserve this area.
Antony Wannell: I have been a supporter of the EWT since 2005 and would love to help raise further funds for their cause. When I was at school we used to hike with scouts regularly in the Drakensberg and it would be great to get back there.
Skylo and Wildoke
