Hire a Safari Guide


Should you be a tour operator or individual wanting to hire a professional safari guide to accompany your guests or yourself on your own safaris anywhere in Africa? Look no further. If you’re sending guests on an African safari and have made all the arrangements yourself, but require a specialist safari guide to look after them, our guides are available for private hire to ensure that your company and your guests gain the maximum benefit, knowledge and enjoyment from their trip to Africa.

Our small, select family of mature, specialist wilderness guides have many years of advanced guiding experience behind them. We don’t employ “Ray Ban Rangers” or “Jeep Jockey’s” at Africa Walking Safaris. Each of our guides can ably interract with mature tourists and VIP travellers expecting the ultimate safari experience and demanding the highest standards of professionalism.

Whether the type of safari you’ve planned is purely vehicle-borne, or includes walking trails, our guides are guaranteed to provide you and your guests with the highest levels of knowledge, competence, safety and professionalism to be found in the African safari business.

All of our guides are accredited members of FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa) and are current with the following minumum qualifications and registrations:

  • Minimum of 30 years of age
  • Minimum of 10 years guiding experience
  • FGASA Level 2 Field Guide Qualification
