Educating our Guides

The Mushara Collection’s guides participated in two courses last year, the last was with Taryn Ingram-Gillson and is part of the FGASA (Field Guide Association of South Africa) training. The practical part of the course was hosted in Etosha with the assistance of M.E.T. and the wardens of the Park.
We at The Mushara Collection believe this training to be crucial as it allowsour guests to experience and appreciate the park to its fullest. The sighting of the larger animals, however exhilarating, some times over shadows the smaller and more timid species like the shy Dammara Dik-dik and bullish Honey Badger. With the knowledge gained from these courses, our guides will entertain you with intimate knowledge of the park’s fauna and flora.
They will be able to show you the tracks left from a passing black Rhino, the majestic strut of the sectary bird or fill you in on the family life of the Ground Squirrel whilst they inquisitively stand alerted by your presents. We look forward to welcoming you to the Eastern Etosha, and will continue striving to make your visit an unforgettable one. Mariza Pamper and the rest of The Mushara Collection team.
