Iynette was a great guide who brought our group up the mountains with great vigor. See us on the IINDIAN VENSTER route (highly recommended because it is varied, interesting and a bit sporty) with information about the country, flora + fauna and the history of the country. We even did the way back with her on foot because we were then overrun in the cable cabin. Gladly with her again at any time.
