Pack Safari - Empowering Namibians

Pack Safari - Empowering Namibians

03 June 2019 | Tourism

With 20 years of experience in the tourism industry, Pack Safari started a new chapter in its exiting journey in the beginning of the year, by starting its tour guide academy.

The tour guide academy is giving ten local Namibians an excellent opportunity to further themselves and develop their careers by offering free vocational training to become tour guides. These first participants of the academy will not only become certified tour guides, but will during that time also be paid a training allowance and be required to attend a seven-month intensive German language course. The latter should not be regarded as being of lesser importance, quite the contrary as Pack Safaris mainly caters for the German-speaking tourist market.

During the initial stages of training, emphasis will thus be placed on learning to speak German, where after tour guide related topics such as knowledge about fauna, flora, geology, astronomy, history, and safe driving will be introduced and become the main focus. Furthermore trainees will receive hands-on lessons from those who know best: the already experienced tour guides working for Pack Safari. After successful completion of the course, the graduates will be offered a five-year contract as a permanently employed tour guide, working for Pack Safari.

Pack Safari believes in empowering Namibians through certified education, which allows not only for better chances of employment in the short term, but in fact improves the prospects of following a successful career over the longer term in a growing industry.

Specialising in guided tours with groups of up to 16 people, Pack Safari is dedicated towards awarding attention to each individual, while visiting the country’s top tourist destinations. For those who prefer other means of seeing and experiencing Namibia, the company also arranges carefully designed self-drive tours as well as fly-in safaris.
