Keen on championing the breadth of knowledge and passion displayed by female guides for their local communities and areas, we invited a few of them to chat about their groundbreaking careers in a two-part series blog split between Southern and East Africa.
Leading the way in Southern Africa, Chobe Angels is a team 22 strong – of strong females only, that is. Located in Botswana’s spectacular Chobe National Park, Chobe Game Lodge has an all-female guiding squad. All members are professionally trained and confident in their breaking of traditional gender norms. Meanwhile, at Singita’s lodges across South Africa, the company prides itself on sky-high service standards – and its highly trained female staff are an important part of the guest experience. Both ladies representing Singita are based in Kruger National Park and guide guests staying at Singita Lebombo and Singita Sweni.
