THE WILD BUNCH
Because everyone is automatically allocated their own private vehicle when they stay with us, it only makes sense to complement this with a top-class guiding team that can truly unlock the magic for you. To optimise your experience, our guides work together with a spotter: an invaluable extra pair of eyes to ceaselessly scan the landscape while your guide focuses on navigating the terrain, and translating the inner workings of the wilderness to you. The dynamic of this duo perfectly encapsulates the holistic approach we take toward bush knowledge. While the guides have studied, completed courses, read books and learned scientific names, our spotters are specially selected from local tribes for their ancient, inherited knowledge passed down and absorbed osmotically from centuries of their ancestors. In this way, ‘book-knowledge’ plus an ancient system acquired over an age of living the wild life interweaves seamlessly to form a rich tapestry of knowledge to share. Testament to the success of this approach is borne by our very proud wins in the annual Good Safari Guide Awards: In 2014, we won Runner Up Best Safari Guiding Team in Africa In 2015 we won Best Safari Guiding Team in Africa
