FGASA Safari Guide of the Year 2019. The 5 nominees share their thoughts...

The area of the Marakele National Park is the backdrop for Safari Guide of the Year 2019, 
and it is truly spectacular!
The competition will take place at the NJ More Field Guide College
and runs from the 23rd June, with the winner being announced on the 27th.


The Safari Guide of the Year for 2018 was;
James Tyrrell 
Londolozi
This is what he had to say about the competition:

The only one of the guides I have met is Julius,
as I have visited Samara on a number of occasions.
I hope to spent time with the other nominees
during the course of the competition.

The first task in the competition 
is the bird slide and sound assessment.
I am certain that neither will be as easy as identifying this bird.
