Born in Cape Town, Busi attended primary school in the Eastern Cape and Western Cape provinces before completing her schooling at Muizenberg High School. Busi left Cape Town and relocated to Johannesburg in 2015.

Busi never doubted the career path she wanted to follow and completed a qualification in Human Resources Management through UNISA.

Highly motivated, Busi is currently completing her bachelor’s degree in Management and Leadership through UFS Business School.

Busi has an impressive 20 years’ experience in human capital, managing and enhancing numerous career journeys. Her experience extends across varied industries, from business start-ups, where she was responsible for building the HR function, to working for established corporate firms, including Metropolitan, Ackermans, Teletech and the Foschini Retail Group, in HR and Talent Acquisition management roles.

Outside of work, Busi is kept very busy with her studies and her two children’s various sporting pursuits. Creative at heart, Busi also dabbles in interior design.

Busi joined Wilderness in May 2023, saying: “I look forward to my next chapter. The Wilderness family stands out because of its values and commitment to the environment and the communities it serves, both internally and externally”.
