Calling all rangers in the making

The heroes of any safari are without doubt our khaki-clad field guides with their seemingly magical abilities to find animals from smudges left in the dirt, or to navigate impossible obstacles with their powerful 4×4 vehicles. In this series, we’ll teach all you rangers-in-the-making everything you need to know on your mission to become a ranger.

How to participate?

  • You’ll connect with your guide through video-conferencing software called Zoom. We recommend you download Zoom onto your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet, and test it before your booking.
  • You will need to have a stable internet connection – Zoom recommends a connection speed of 2mbps up/down.
  • For the best experience, please ensure that you test your Zoom meeting (see above) as the quality of the live video recording, which will be played back during your session, may be affected by your connectivity.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO BRING?
  • Come prepared… be sure to re-watch the latest episode of our WILDchild: Becoming a Ranger series
  • Bring your notepad, your questions and a big safari smile

Meet your guide
