Meet the Janse Van Vuurens

In May 2021, we set foot in the enchanting town of Phikwe, ready to embark on a new chapter filled with excitement and challenges. The wheels of progress began turning swiftly, propelling us into a whirlwind of activity. As the first trees were planted in the freshly prepared soil of the farm, we witnessed the birth of a thriving project, not without its fair share of obstacles to overcome.


Amidst this bustling period, I transitioned into my role at the office in town while the children found their place in a new school, bravely embracing the changes that awaited us. Reflecting upon our journey thus far, we are grateful for the unwavering support of the Selebi Phikwe community and the remarkable project we are privileged to be a part of.


Working for Selebi Phikwe Citrus is both a privilege and an exhilarating challenge. Each day, we confront obstacles head-on. Botswana, with its breathtaking landscapes and kind-hearted people, has become our cherished home.



Oh, what a journey it has been!


Today, 18 months later, we are still here, standing tall, and very happy to be part of the community of Selebi Phikwe and the amazing project.
