The Ultimate Kruger Park Experience Siyabona Africa Travel has embarked on a project to redefine the way the Kruger National Park is presented to visitors. Our Safaris are the product of a combination of feedback from guests who have travelled to the Kruger Park, Siyabona Africa Travel staff (who have travelled extensively throughout Africa), and safari tour guides with many years of experience in the field. Siyabona Africa Travel aims to provide visitors to the Kruger National Park with an unrivalled safari experience through unsurpassed service excellence, intimate local knowledge and state-of-the art equipment.
The staff comprising of safari guides and safari camp assistants are selected from the areas surrounding Kruger Park and are trained in this service excellence philosophy.
The Vision Siyabona Africa Safaris’ vision is to provide the best Kruger Park wildlife experience with the added inclusion of local wisdom and philosophy carried across by people who have grown up in the Kruger Park. The project goes beyond the need to fit into a new dispensation. It is a reflection of the ideals of Siyabona Africa Travel and is aimed at the creation of a team of individuals who provide a safari experience that will leave guests totally fulfilled in the knowledge that they have been part of the ultimate African Safari.
Our Kruger Park Safari Guides Siyabona Africa Safaris’ complement of safari guides and safari camp assistants have been hand picked from the local Shangaan community and have been extensively trained in the philosophy of service excellence. They also receive advanced driver training from Land Rover. Having grown up in the Kruger Park area, all the members of staff carry a quality many other guides do not have – intimate knowledge of the culture and wildlife of the area. It is this knowledge that provides the visitor with a unique perspective of Africa.
Previously denied the opportunity to be involved in the promotion of their heritage due to outdated philosophies and ideas, the guides and staff of Siyabona Africa Safaris’ has taken up the challenge to provide the ultimate Kruger safari experience. They can now take their rightful place in the advancement of the country and their communities through sharing their special knowledge with guests.
The Goal The goals of the programme are manifold. It is to train safari guides and safari camp assistants for Siyabona Africa Safaris’ operations in the Kruger National Park, provide the ultimate safari experience for visitors, and to provide opportunities for people who have previously been denied the benefits of the country’s heritage. Through this programme Siyabona Africa Travel is redefining the philosophy of the safari tour industry by keeping clear of old-school indoctrination and thereby allow benefits to pass on to all citizens.
