So excited to see our new hiking guides completing their two weeks of training with Venture forthwww.wwf.org.za/. Thanks to all those who supported the training: DEA, Swellendam Tourism and WWF/TMF. The guides have worked really hard this week and are now ready to start practicing what they have learnt.
They are off today to walk a 15km route along one of our red routes and will talk about the many topics that they have discussed for a good guided experience: planning, information, safety and having fun! We are very proud of them all. Soon we will be working on some packages and experiences that will make a visit to the area even more enchanting so "watch this space"! Perhaps we will even get some of them on a mountain bike!
The group spent today walking through a planned route and practicing aspects which included tying ropes on steep slopes
