Welcome to Safaritalk. Please feel free to join in any of the conversations and debates, upload your photos, talk about recent trips or ask questions. There are plenty of areas of interest that may well match your own, and of course, the thing that matters to all of us is wildlife conservation. There are plenty of members here on Safaritalk who have years of experience in travelling to Africa, or who live and work in Africa, some in the safari industry, some in wildlife conservation, community projects and so on. If you do have any doubts you can always email me directly here.

If you are a tour operator, lodge manager, travel agency etc, you agree not to publicise your company, blatantly or otherwise. If it is considered that such a post goes against this, it will be edited and the member responsible be banned. However, you can make mention of such in your introductory post in the Introductions forum, and you are encouraged to include your website address as a part of your signature. This can be done when logged on by clicking on the drop down menu by your user name: then My Settings, click the profile tab - then change signature: don't forget to make your web address clickable...

If you are involved in the Safari industry in some way, then you must select one of the following for Category 1: Tour Operator, Travel Agent, Ground Handler, Travel Marketing, Safari Guide, Lodge Owner/Manager. For Category 2, you can then select another option which best suits your interests. This is to encourage open and transparent discussion in a safe and trustworthy environment. As an operator you are encouraged to post updates and latest information in the Lodge, camp and operator news forum.

Advertising and self promotion is not appropriate on Safaritalk, unless under specific cases, and an example of what is acceptable is outlined here:

Q: I am looking to buy a camera bag that will fit my Canon + 70 -200, 300 2.8 etc etc and am considering so and so bags, can you suggest an alternative.

A: Having used a number of various bags during my recent safaris, I decided to design my own which compares well to the ones you mention, details can be found at ..........

Or:

Q: I'm looking for a great read before my next trip to Africa, can anyone suggest a book.

A: Recently I published "Tales of Africa" (example) which is available at ......com and was highly reviewed.

Or:

Q: I'm specifically looking to book 5 nights at Lodge A between the following dates, but cannot find prices or details of specials online.

A: As manager/ess of Lodge A, I can confirm that for those dates, prices can be found at our website here, and there is a special pay 4 stay 1 free offer.

(Although I would assume this would apply to the smaller, independently run camps...)

They are offering these as a suggestion to a question relating directly to the product.

If you are involved in the industry, you may not Private Message other members with any kind of offers, deals, incentives etc, without consent from the other member. If found to be doing so, your membership will be removed.
