Essential Guiding

FGASA Endorsed Training Providers
Essential Guiding is determined to help guides of all descriptions achieve their potential. We have been involved in training and mentoring some of the industry's finest guides since 2001 and can help you make the most of your guiding or guiding team. Guides are like sports people - only as good as their last game! Top sports people are continually training, staying with the trends and working hard to get ahead to be the best - Federer, Djokovic, Messi & Tiger Woods all have coaches to assist them in staying sharp and staying ahead. It is no different for guides: if the intention is to remain local, then the aim should be to be the best local guide in the area. If someone is guiding locally, but has no idea where to next, then delivering the best possible guided experiences will start opening doors to new jobs, new lodges, new parks or even countries.   It all starts with understanding how to aim high and what is required to do this - we can help point people in the right direction, add skills and facilitate their growth.
