Zambia 2021

Over a three-month period, Simon, Paul and Chris with the park instructors ran a Basic Field

Ranger (BFR) course to select and train the latest batch of scouts for the park (rangers are

referred to as ‘scouts’ in Zambia). The selection phase was a tough boot camp of long hard

days with little sleep. We ended with an equal mix of males and females for the skills

training with 33 in total graduating as fully fledged scouts.

There was a heavy focus on law enforcement, tracking and medical skills as well as the

general BFR patrolling and weapon handling subjects. Once back off leave the scouts were

very soon integrated into the varied roles of the different established units in the park,

based on the reports and recommendations of the instructors.
