Katlego Maboe

To have a true South African experience one MUST…

I am originally from…

Potchefstroom.

My favourite part of the country is…

The Western Cape and more specifically Cape Town.

When I was a little boy I was…

Katlego Maboe has fast risen to become a star on SA’s media landscape. Not only is the young man a great singer, MC and presenter on our live morning show Espresso, but he is also a qualified accountant and a very likeable guy. His charisma, intelligence and wit make him a pleasure to wake up to...

Really good at cricket and had dreams of one day playing for the Proteas.

My fantasy guest and ultimate travel companion for the greatest road trip of all time would be…

Ryan Seacrest.

The ultimate Katlego Maboe tour would include…

A trip to Machu Piccu.


My best holiday experience ever was…

My 2013 Euro-Trip with my two very good friends.

My biggest holiday disaster was…

Having to throw away all my toiletries (including some very expensive cologne) at airport security just before my trip to Paris because all the bottles were too big. Then arriving in Paris and having to find a pharmacy to get supplies in the middle of the night…which naturally didn’t happen. 

Things that make me laugh are…

Sometimes silly to other people but I have a weird sense of humour so it is to be expected.

I never travel without…

A few phrases of the native tongue spoken in the country or region I am visiting.

My pet peeve is…

People who don’t know how to share aeroplane arm rests… 

Not a lot of people know this about me, but…

I can’t swim to save my life. But I am fixing that soon!

My live TV experience has taught me…

To be prepared for ANYTHING at any moment and to enjoy every second of the journey.

My job makes me feel…

Empowered to inspire others to live life with energy everyday.

One day I plan to…

Be the best Dad ever.
