Nick at expert africa did a great job organising everything, especially considering the changes caused by Air Seychelles dropping their long haul flights."
Tau Pan Camp
"Lions close by at Tau Pan Camp"
"Luxury at Baines' Camp"
We went back to Sanctuary regarding this point made by these guests and they came back to us with the following explanation:
Thank you for the positive feedback and the observation re the tracker. In NG32 the "tracker" is not a "tracker" as we normally understand it, but what is called an "escort guide" who represents the communities, to ensure Sanctuary (Baines parent company) are adhering to their rules etc.
Part of our standard guest briefing includes an explanation of the role of the escort guides, that is they are not employed by Sanctuary but are community trust employees. We will advise the managers to underpin this to guests, in the briefings
We are happy to hear that Sanctuary have reiterated the importance of correctly and adequately explaining the role of escort guides to guests and are satisfied that this will be better communicated to guests in the future.
