Your private guide
On a guided tour with Tailor Made Safaris, you will have a private guide and private vehicle at your disposal for the duration of your holiday. Your guide is there to assist you and will be available for you 24/7 in the case of any emergencies.
However, in order to ensure you get the very best from your guide (and therefore, your tour), on occasion, your guide will need a little private time to him or herself. This means that your guide will not necessarily have supper with you every single night, or join you on every activity if another guide is leading the activity. Of course this will be discussed with you in advance.
Please remember your guide is not a plumber, handyman, weatherman or magician! There might be some issues your guide cannot fix, but rest assured, he or she will do their best to solve the problem.
Your holiday is yours to sit back, relax and let your guide look after you. However, your guide works long days and is only human. Any assistance you wish to offer will be greatly appreciated, whether that be helping to pack or unpack the car, carrying the luggage, cleaning the dishes after a meal, or help doing grocery shopping and preparing food. In fact, should you choose to give a hand, you’ll also save time ‘waiting’ for the guide, allowing you more ‘quality time’ on game drives. For most of our guests this help comes naturally and is highly valued on behalf of Tailor Made Safaris, however, please do not feel obliged if you’d rather relax – you are on holiday after all!
