Mark Bayly

After graduating from the University of Cape Town, Mark Bayly joined his father in managing the upmarket luxury hotel, Ellerman House, in the exclusive suburb of Bantry Bay in Cape Town.

While working there, he accepted an offer from a guest to join the management team at The @venue restaurant in London. Several months later, realising that sunlight was essential to his happiness, Bayly returned to Cape Town and Ellerman House.

A few years later and desirous of new challenges, Bayly completed a tour-guiding course, and for the next couple of years, conducted exclusive private tours of the Cape region. He was approached by the world's largest online casino group to become a host for its VIP players. So began a few years of travelling the globe while entertaining customers at the highest level, at events such as The Monaco Grand Prix, the Grammy Awards, etc.

Throughout all these years, Bayly's dream was to be an actor, and although he had filmed many television commercials, he was still looking for his break. This came when he successfully auditioned for the role of host on the inaugural "Survivor: South Africa" series in 2006, and then reprised the role the following year.

As the host of the biggest show on South African TV for two consecutive years, Bayly became a household name and was in much demand as a facilitator and host of "Survivor" themed corporate events. This naturally led to more mainstream MC engagements, where Bayly really found his calling, and he continues to entertain his growing list of blue-chip clients.

He also fulfils the role of ambassador and MC for a select group of charitable organisations. Post "Survivor", he has added a number of other shows to his resume. He hosted a 13-part wildlife documentary: "Modern Migrations". He became the go-to presenter for outdoor and healthy lifestyle TV specials such as "The Sports Illustrated Toyota RoughStuff Challenge" and "The Men's Health Look Challenge". For three years, he was a principal host on pay channel MNet's award-winning weekly entertainment show: "All Access". He is in much demand as a voice-over artist and enjoyed a few years behind the mic on SA's first successful online radio station, 2Oceansviberadio.com.

In addition to his entertainment exploits, in July of 2014 and with an eye to the future, Bayly accepted a position with Pam Golding Properties. He currently represents this prestigious company as an agent specialising in properties within the highly sought-after area of Constantia in Cape Town's southern suburbs.

Bayly lives in Cape Town with his wife Gabi and their two children.
