I’m trying to find out a bit more about how mountain guiding works in South Africa and hoping someone here might have some knowledge on the subject. I’ve seen courses advertised such as through Venture Forth or Peak High Mountaineering. Does anyone have any experience with these or similar course?
If you want to lead people on hikes are you legally required to have a guide qualification? Does this only apply if you are charging people money, or also if leading groups voluntarily?
