Game Rangers and Bush Guides
Some are called game-rangers and others are called bush-guides. Some of them wear short khaki-shorts and kudu-leather boots while others prefer long trousers, sleeveless bush-jackets and wide-brim hats. Most of them have at least one copper bangle around his or her wrist and all of them like using words like kleptoparasitsm, polyandry and termitarium in their everyday sentences to show off their weird repertoire of funny-sounding words. They are the backbone of the safari industry all over Africa and they all have one thing in common – they will all tell you that there is a massive difference between what people think they do and what they actually do. That guides work harder than most people – long days, dust, danger and difficult clients. True?
