Correnè Erasmus-Coetzer (born in 1959) lives in Stellenbosch, South Africa. She is an ex-teacher who likes to be outdoors and love to travel to remote places. She has been three times to Antarctica allready.

Correnè Erasmus-Coetzer is a South African lady who grew up on a farm near Molteno in the Eastern Cape. She is married to Wynand and is a trained teacher.

Correnè has a passion for nature and the Great Outdoors - which recently led her to making two guided expeditions that walked the last degree of latitude to both the North and South Poles. In 2006-07, she has walked together with Denise Martin (guide) and Beth Cheesebourgh from Patriot Hills to South Pole, being resupplied twice en route. Earlier, in March 2006, as a preparation to her third visit to Antarctica, she has crossed solo the Great Slave Lake in Canada. In 2004, Corrennè succeeded the ascent of mount Ishinca (5530m) in Peru ; she has also been to the top of Kilimandjaro (Tanzania) and to the advanced base camp of mount Everest, back in 2003. In 2002, she has made the North Pole last degree and one year earlier, she walked the South Pole last degree.

Correnè is also working with South African schools to inspire children to reach for their own life goals. Correnè is fast becoming an ambassador and leading light for women of South Africa today.
