What Makes a Great Safari Guide in Africa?

1. A good safari guide is knowledgeable

A good safari guide will provide you with a wealth of information. There is a lot to learn, especially if it is your first safari. A knowledgeable guide will be able to answer all of your questions.

A great safari guide will also be able to acknowledge when they do not know the answer to a question. From there, they will then research the answer and come back to you later that day, or before you depart. This thirst for knowledge is an important aspect of being a great safari guide.

2. Great Safari Guides are great at making conversation

It’s generally up to the guide to keep the conversation going, whether it’s at sundowners (unless it’s obvious that everyone is content staring off into the bush and enjoying the calm) or supper.

A competent safari guide will be aware of which themes to pursue based on the personalities, ages, cultures, nations, and other characteristics of the guests. It’s up to the guide to professionally shift the conversation in a new way if politics come up and it’s evident certain visitors are uncomfortable.

3. A good safari guide ensures your safety

A good guide will be able to keep people safe by understanding animal signals. This is very vital when on a walking safari. Your safari guide will also know how to drive safely and responsibly, lowering the chances of getting stuck – though even the best drivers can get stranded at times!

When it does, they’ll at least know how to rapidly resolve the issue and not cause alarm among visitors.
