When Visitors are Fulfilled

Part 2: Professional Safaris Guide - Viewpoint

Shylock really likes people who come to Africa to see the differences from what they know back home. He believes "indigenous guides are best suited to help them explore the bush and the culture of Botswana." Shylock knows and loves Botswana. The same applies to being a Safari Guide.

Often he has to balance the different needs of guests interested in birds or big game. "Ideally, we move when customers are fulfilled with what they are watching." Some time each day needs to be spent reviewing what was seen and done.

Shylock Raborokgwe gets "excited when I spot a special animal, like a leopard, that a guest has never seen before." Knowing the particular habitat that supports an animal or bird is the skill he uses to find the game.
