Hi, I’m Emily! Also known as safari_emz. When I first booked onto my year-long professional guiding course with Ecotraining, I wanted to read everything I could about life as a safari guide. Although there are some amazing books and a few travel blogs there seemed to be very little online to tell me what a guide REALLY does, day in, day out. So, having almost completed my year with Ecotraining and on the cusp of beginning my career as a guide, I decided to set up this blog. You can follow my journeyΒ and learn all the travel tips and tricks I pick up along the way as I begin my professional life in the greatest job in the world!

This was taken at the end of my very first trail that I backed-up with the lead guide, Calvin, on the right. I loved every minute!
