Botswana Guide Training Manual

NG cover compiledBuy now

The Botswana Guide Training Manual is aimed aimed at professional guides and is intended to be used throughout their guiding career. The book contains both the information that a guide needs in order to qualify, as well as information that we feel is of interest to guides working within Botswana.  There is plenty of information that goes beyond the Botswana Training Authority (BOTA) and Field Guide Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) requirements. We, at Okavango Guiding School, hope that this manual is a great source of information throughout your guiding career.

We are always striving for better, so if you find any errors in this manual, or have any suggestions for improvement, please email us on
