Who is Your Walking Safari Guide
Kaz Dube is a full-time Walking Safari Guide in Zimbabwe, Africa.
“I was born and raised in Hwange. A Walking Safari Guide in Zimbabwe is a prestigious status and an honor. I enjoy people and wildlife hence the reason why I am a Walking Safari Guide. Guiding integrates people on safari and wild animals in their natural environment.”
“I love to analyse and share with my guests the sequence of natural selection and how it manifests itself in individual species for their survival”
Walking Safari Guide Qualification
Zimbabwe has the best training for Walking Safari Guides in the World.
A Walking Safari Guide in Zimbabwe holds a License obtained and issued under section (68) of the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Act (Chapter 20:14) after an apprenticeship of 4 years in a wildlife reserve under the tutorship of a Walking Safari Guide.
Summary of Qualification
During the four years of apprenticeship to become a Walking Safari Guide, a Learner Guide has to acquire a high level of marksmanship in handling a firearm and dealing with dangerous wildlife for the safety of the guests during a safari.
This training also includes a thorough understanding of wildlife conservation, habits and habitats, photography, guest experience and hospitality, astronomy, safety and health, culture, camp management, maintenance, 4×4 driving skills and general knowledge of tourism in the Southern African region.
A series of theoretical and oral examinations are taken during training.
Finally, a one-week-long practical proficiency test at the end of the apprenticeship is taken in order to acquire a Zimbabwe Walking Safari Guide License.

Booking the wildlife-observers walking safari is an effort to conserve wildlife and makes your trip to Africa meaningful. Using the tourism dollar from our safari guests, we have been able to create the African Safari Walks Community Ploughback program. The ASW Community Ploughback program provides land tillage ox-drawn ploughs to local communities living nearby but outside Hwange National Park so that they can grow crops for eating and selling to sustain their families. Through the ASW Community Ploughback program, African Safari Walks is able to effectively communicate anti-poaching and wildlife conservation to local communities because the program demonstrates that conservation tourism is practically beneficial to the livelihoods in the nearby communities.
