Professional Guides and Ground Crew

The safaris will be undertaken by Afro Trek Safaris and headed by a very experienced, mature, knowledgeable professional guide accompanied by a bush chef and camp assistants.

The guide will use tracking skills honed from years of experience to ensure finding as many wildlife and birdlife species as possible during the safari.

The safari will be a semi-participation type safari wherein the camp staff look after all the catering and required camp duties to ensure a safe and clean campsite for the duration of the safari.

The guests can relax and enjoy the game drives in the knowledge that a well kept camp awaits at the end of each drive.
