Tipping is customary in our industry and accounts for a significant portion of a guide’s income. Tips can make guiding a feasible career choice in the long term and are always appreciated. It is hard to use a percentage scale as a guideline for tipping on our trips because the costs of trips are often hugely influenced by things like bush flights and logistics that are outside of our guides’ control.
A good rule of thumb is $50-$150 per day per guide total from the entire participant group, however, tips should still reflect the quality of the service. If your guides made this the trip of a lifetime, the sky’s the limit!
