Product Description

The guide’s guide to guiding is aimed at informing and educating those that have a love and appreciation for the great outdoors – and a desire to share this passion with others. Wildlife guiding in Africa’s many diverse parks and safari areas is fast becoming a much sought-after occupation. Discover – how to join the tourist industry; the qualifications and requirements needed to become a guide; who and where to learn from; guiding principles and camp etiquette; walking safaris, game drives, night drives, rifles, handguns, photography and binoculars; freelancing, and how to handle burnout; medical supplies and what to do with them; and safety principles. 26 years of active guiding in countries throughout Africa, with many diverse clients, allows the author to pass on a wealth of knowledge gained in this exciting outdoor vocation. His informative words are enhanced by the artful cartoons of Dov Fedler, which add light-hearted humour while emphasising pertinent points.
