Safari Ranger Guides

South Africa

     
So
much
more than
just tour guides
     

Why are Safari Ranger guides different to tour guides?

Your safari guide is a critical part of making a safari a success - that's a fact.

During the planning of your safari you need to make sure you are dealing with a safari tour operator who knows how important it is to employ guides who are more than just tour guides or driver guides.

A tour operator requires a 'type of guide' who is very much committed to making every client's safari an exciting and enjoyable experience. It's beneficial to the client which in tern benefits the tour operator, which benefits the guide.

That 'type of guide' is known as a Safari Ranger.

A Safari Ranger is a tour guide who has extra passion and is completely committed; who has carried on with his or her career to train and qualify as a Field Guide, then going on to live and work in the bush as a Professional Game Ranger.

The increased amount of knowledge and experience thus gained working in the bush, far out weighs the exposure obtained by a tour guide who is content with only passing a tour guide course in downtown Jo'burg.

All our Safari Rangers are friendly, experienced and are registered with the relevant guiding associations of South Africa - FGASA (Field Guides Association of South Africa) and DEAT (Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism).

Some Safari Rangers hold level 3 and SKS DA (Dangerous Animals) qualifications which are currently recognised as the highest qualifications in the safari industry throughout Africa.

Note


Your safety is very important to us. You will depend on your ranger for your safety. Therefore safety talks will be conducted whilst on safari. The ranger must be obeyed at all times. Failure to co-operate in this respect could lead to the immediate cancellation of your safari.

Tipping your Safari Ranger. It's a sign of saying 'thanks for a great time'. A suggestion or indication is R50 per day.

SATOUR - South Africa Tourism is no longer the governing body regulating tour guides. Legal tour guides are now registered with DEAT or FGASA. Safari Rangers are registered with both DEAT & FGASA. All Safari Rangers are in the process of having their qualifications THETA validated in accordance with the NQF guiding standards. Every Safari Ranger is first-aid qualified.
