|Scorpion Course Feedback Malilangwe|
Brad is the Head Field Guide at Malilangwe, he writes the following:
Thank you so much for the course, it is the most comprehensive course of its kind that I have ever been on, it was sure worth every penny! You have opened up a whole new world for me and the guides and I know it will serve them well in the future.
Time is a Field Guide at Malilangwe, he writes the following:
To me the course was a big eye opener in my life. As you are aware charity begins at home and our cultures play a very important role in the society during our childhood. In our culture anything that sprays venom is associated with witchcraft ie snakes scorpions etc. Touching a scorpion was not easy at all without Jonathan's assistance and confidence I would not have bothered at all. The first lecture we had before going into the field built my confidence and from there did understand that not all scorpions are dangerous .I could not believe myself when i touched my first Hadogenes troglodytes,the feeling i got handling it was awesome i felt more like a hero. The methods of ID, habits and the use of the UV light were demonstrated in an easy way that anyone would understand and that made me get chuffed. From my point of view as far as safari guide is concerned its not only about the big five but there are small stuff that can keep our guest smiling especially on quiet drives. I hope to put the knowledge I learnt from you into good use, not only to the guest but also educating our local people in the communities.
Sarah at Malilangwe had the following to say:
Thanks for all you taught us about spiders and scorpions at Malilangwe. You made an impact on all our lives and we'll never look at scorpions or spiders in the same way again, and will be much more tolerant, even kinder to them!
