1. We only work in South Sudan and are considered the experts
2. We are not a "Brief Case Safari Operator" sneaking in and out of an African country for only 1 or 2 safari trips per year
3. We are licensed by the South Sudan government and pay taxes in South Sudan.
4. Our office is in Juba, South Sudan
5. We hire only South Sudanese citizens and create much needed local jobs, supporting many families
6. Our illegal competition brings employees from other countries who have no work permits from the South Sudan Ministry of Immigration. As a result qualified citizens of South Sudan and their families are denied much needed jobs and income.
7. Our employees are required to know at least one of of the tribal languages of South Sudan, plus English. Which is of course essential to interact with the tribal people during a safari. In any team of employees (cooks, drivers, etc) operating one of our safaris, as many as 6 different tribal languages will be spoken, plus English.
8. Always ask to see a safari operator's permit when going to South Sudan. If they have no permits to operate in South Sudan your safari can be stopped.
9. South Sudan is a wild country, the Africa of 100 years ago. We always have armed forest rangers with us (who also double as translators when we are with their tribe). Our illegal competition does not provide this, placing you in jeopardy.
