Who’s who at Operation Wallacea South Africa

Director of Operations – Peter Herbst
PADI course director Peter Herbst (BigB), has been involved with Opwall in Mozambique since 2008 as sub-contractor and diving coordinator. His passion is all to do with diving – underwater photography, cave diving, deep diving, teaching diving or just plain diving! BigB has his own successful diving school in South Africa and is one of the top trainers in the country. He has logged in excess of 2000 dives all over the world – including Ice diving in Denmark and cave diving in Florida. He has many years of experience in teaching divers and managing large groups of people in exotic locations. He loves the bush, the ocean and needs to lose weight!

Marketing Manager for South Africa & Madagascar Marine Site Manager – Lenize Oeschger
Lenize first worked with Opwall in 2012 at the Mozambique site as a Divemaster and assistant manager. Her passion for diving started in 2008 and she qualified as a PADI Divemaster in 2011. Since then she has worked for dive centers doing day trips and managing travels for big groups. She joined Opwall again in 2014 in Madagascar where she worked as a Divemaster and also dive site manager. In 2015 she joined the Madagascar expedition and managed the dive site. She loves working with groups and the challenges a remote place presents. And changing out a winter office view to a summer island office view is fantastic!
