One of the most crucial aspects of any safari experience is the quality of your guide and rangers. Long after you’ve forgotten the meals you ate and the comfy beds you slept in, you’ll still be talking about the safari, the animals, your ranger and the guide.
So what’s the difference between a Ranger and a Private Guide?
Wherever you go on safari you will be allocated a Ranger who works for the particular lodge you are staying in. In the more upmarket lodges you will be allocated the same Ranger for the duration of the stay so that he can get to know you thereby ensuring that information is not repeated and that your game viewing is optimised according to your interests and previous sightings.
On an extended trip which incorporates more than one lodge or destination however, this seamless continuity can be lost as you spend time getting to know a new Ranger and repeating information. This is where a Private Guide can really add value to your experience.
A Private Guide, or host guide as they’re sometimes known, is a guide that will accompany you, whether you’re a couple, family or group, for the duration of your holiday or safari experience. They facilitate your journey and add a continuous professional dimension to your trip.
This would include everything from meeting you at the airport and booking you into your hotel, to sitting with you around the campfire and pointing out the stars.
So what are the advantages of a private guide for you?
