Josephine grew up on a farm just south of Johannesburg, which exposed her to open spaces and encouraged her to develop a love for nature at a very young age. Later she attended the Diocesan College for Girls in the Eastern Cape where she developed a love for working with children in the many outreach projects she was involved in there. Finding her way further south down the coast to Cape Town, she studied a Bachelor of Science in Genetics and Biochemistry at the University of Cape Town. Being a great lover of the outdoors, nature and working with children, she could not let the opportunity of working in the Londolozi Cubs Den slip by. She loves spending time with children who visit Londolozi from all over the world in the most wonderful and stimulating playground.
