Wilderness Trail - Gratuities

Unread post by margherita » Wed Apr 12, 2017 11:07 am

Good day to all,
I am going on a Wilderness Trail in Kruger next week and were wondering about the gratuities for guides/cook.
I come from a place (Italy) where tipping is not common so I wouldn't be sure on how much to tip them.
Can someone share their experience/thoughts?

Thank you for you time (:

margherita, the only post I can find specifically for tipping on the wilderness trail is Here
but This post pretty much sums it up and I think basically its up to the individual as to how much and whether to tip or not based on the experience received.

Dear Margherita

We did a walking trail at the end of March and thought it appropriate to tip the two rangers and cook. Certainly the amount of the tip is discretionary but bear in mind that the rangers and cook are very experienced and they take of you for two days.

We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of seeing the Park on foot. Hope you have a fabulous time.

Kind regards
RiG
