What is a Guestateer?

A Guestateer is a crossbreed of a guest and a volunteer.

  • If you thought you can’t afford a safari, NOW is the time.
  • With the World the way it is what could be better than a big change.
  • In moving with these times we have designed a long stay program.
  • Calling all horse lovers – wildlife lovers – lovers of the great outdoors.
  • This is the chance to really immerse yourself in Africa.

What’s on offer?

  • All the benefits of being a full safari guest at a heavily reduced rate.
  • Your own large Meru style tent with ensuite hot bucket showers and long drop loo
  • All meals and tea, coffee and water. Apart from booze which you can buy in camp.
  • Proficient riders will have the opportunity to work horses and be involved as much or as little as you like with horse care and all that goes with keeping a team of horses in Zimbabwe in tip top condition
  • Intermediate riders can improve their riding skills.
  • Even though we are in unusual times our team of 26 horses must still be looked after.
  • Join in on game drives when possible.
  • You will be in the company of James Varden one of Zimbabwe’s leading Professional Guides and a walking Wikipedia on Wildlife, birds, trees, grasses, insects in fact anything bush. Spending time with James in the bush is a privilege and learning experience.
  • Riders will be able to participate in snare patrols on horseback with our team. A part of our ongoing antipoaching patrols.
