What is a Filed Guide
A Field Guide, by definition, is one who supervises people in what is considered a NATURAL ZONE environment. He can supervise the group by foot, aboard a vehicle, on horseback, in a canoe or another type of watercraft, in all Natural Zones, including Game Reserve and National Parks. This includes different types of terrains: Marginal fluvial, savannah, brush, hills, mountains, desert and coast. A Field Guide is the key connection between the environment and the travellers, providing information in order to enable them to better appreciate and apprehend the surroundings than if they were alone. In conclusion, a Field Guide is able to ensure the maximum security possible and the best assistance in a potentially dangerous environment.
