One of the priorities set for the Virtual Region of the SANParks Honorary Rangers, was the training of SANParks guides. This was determined by a poll on the Forum after the launch of the region.

We were approached by Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to help them equip their guides to be able to deliver a better service to their guests.

Out of funds raised during the first online auction and a donation by a forumite, we were able to provide each of the eleven guides in Kgalagadi with four field guides (mammals, birds, reptiles and trees) and a pair of binoculars.

The material was sourced in Gauteng by the VHRs, and is now being taken to Kgalagadi by a forumite.

We hope to bring you pictures of the delivery by next weekend.
