My name is Patrizia Dell and I am known as Perry by everyone. I have been appointed as the Marketing & PR Trust Manager as of 1 March 2013.
I have a really long history of involvement with conservation and living in the bush. If all those years ago you had said to me that this city girl would from her first exodus be forever bush bound I would have laughed.
Starting on the Molopo Nature Reserve back in 1987, I lived in the Kalahari for 12 years where all 3 my children were raised before moving to the Madikwe Game Reserve. I lived in Madikwe for 5 years and worked at Jaci's Lodges for 8 years as Reservations and Marketing Manager.
After Madikwe I moved to Pilanesberg and have been here for 7 years now. While in the Pilanesberg I ran my own Marketing Company before opening and managing the Selous Bush Camp close to Pilanesberg in 2010.
It has been an amazing journey to this point and I am truly looking forward to being associated with such a worthy cause as the PWT.
The PWT, though run by myself, can only be a success if I can convince you all of the good work that will be done in regard to environmental conservation, ecotourism and social up-liftment of the local communities. There are many projects that will be put in place and your input and suggestions would be most welcome.
I will be looking for experiences and images from all of you so that I can update the website and please be-friend our facebook page - the one with the North West Parks LOGO. You can also send through any realistic ideas and altruistic intentions to raise funds! I will give it all serious thought!
Bush wishes - Perry Dell
