Hi all!
Many Years ago when I first visited the park as a child I was always fascinated by the rangers! I knew one day I would be a ranger & wear the Kudu logo proudly. I remember reading about all the Legends of days gone by that put their lives on the line everyday for Sanparks. These were my Heroes! Many years later I returned, As I got in the gate I looked in the rear view at my shining eppaulettes. I got goosebumps as memories rushed back & the feeling of accomplishment set in!! Although I was a jeep jockey for an osv company, I felt like something more!

Since then I have been based in the Greater Kruger Park at a 5 star Lodge & become senior ranger. I really am blessed but still I can't take my mind of the ultimate goal. To serve Sanpark's!! If anyone has advise for me, perhaps other Sanparks guides on how or who to speak to, I would really appreciate that. Thanks for reading & looking forward to being apart the Forum. :thumbs_up:

I hope that we see a lot more of you. I always love it when people with bush experience add their insights.

A warm welcome to the forum Chavaluthu

Keep an eye out for media releases on the main website and on FaceBook, SANParks often post vacancies on there. Would also be worth getting your CV up to date and sending it off to SANParks, well it couldn't do any harm.
