K9 Professional Development Application
GCF has 9 Anti-Poaching K9s deployed on conservation and wildlife protection details in South Africa. This custom tour program is designed to get our guests behind-the-scenes with our K9s, the anti-poaching units, and reserves. Setup for a Max group size of 4, these tours are custom curated to each guests adventure style. Travel alongside the GCF K9 Anti-Poaching Units Project Coordinator, and possibly GCF Field Instructors, as they do assessments, training, and gear supply drops for our K9 rangers. Guests will have the opportunity to get hands on, train with and alongside or K9s, and participate in some patrol duties with our K9 crew. Additional opportunities include participating in wildlife veterinary procedures as part of the broader conservation efforts and goals of Global Conservation Force.

Things to do/bring/know

- We recommend finding flights with Hopper, Google Flights, Expedia. Try to book directly through airline once flights are found. This provides better support should they change any details with the flight. Flights are your responsibility and not included in price of tour.

- Pack light - the trip will be like going on a trip to a US national park with stores within a quick drive. This won't be a wilderness survival course so no need to bring the whole closet and pantry. This will also allow us to travel in one vehicle without issue.

- The Eastern Cape is Malaria free!

- Travel Insurance - we do not provide any insurance programs through our tour, it is up to each individual and party to book their own insurances. We recommend the Blue Cross Blue Shield Travelers insurance program. Full coverage is very reasonable.

- We can use credit/debit cards at most places along this trip. However if you'd like to purchase anything from the local community markets cash is the only way. We recommend getting cash in advance because the airport currency converters are a ripoff. $200 to $300 (transferred into South African Rand) will go very very far. Many ATMs will allow you to withdrawal more cash with the appropriate card settings and card. Please confirm with your banks and credit card companies.

- Cell phones - you can swap out your phones SIM card and its pretty cheap. Roughly $30 will cover you for the trip. This will prevent you from accruing a nasty US phone bill. Providers like T-Mobile have free transferred coverage but it is spotty at best.
