Life on the road for many of our guides is an interesting and busy one. Between June and November in East Africa, our guides are constantly on the go, sometimes only having a single day off between clients arriving and heading out on safari again. Our guides’ special expertise is introducing our clients to the rich and diverse cultures, landscapes, flora and fauna of Africa, which they do with passion, but sometimes they enjoy a little diversion and this month’s World Cup has given them all the encouragement they need.
After a busy day in the field, the guides sometimes get to watch some Premier League action, and no doubt, over the next few weeks, some World Cup action. Some lodges have a TV in the guides’ accommodation which they all crowd around enthusiastically when they get the opportunity. They enjoy a bit of friendly banter amongst each other, and maybe even the occasional game of footy.
With the last World Cup being held in South Africa in 2010, and heralded as one of the best for atmosphere, it is going to be tough for Brazil to match up.
