Let us provide training to your game lodge staff while you focus on the bigger things.

Pre-opening Lodge Training

Are you opening your lodge shortly? Whether is it a game lodge in a private game reserve or a lodge in town, we will help you with customized lodge staff training throughout the lodge pre-opening phase. Our services include the development of tailored standard operating procedures (SOPs), training for your lodge staff, development of policies, and many more other services.

Housekeeping Training


Housekeeping in a game lodge is very different from that of a hotel. We understand the game lodge market and we train housekeeping staff to meet and exceed the highest standards of service.


Our game lodge housekeeping training includes guest engagement, the art of towel origami folding, honeymoon arrangement, attention to detail, professional presentation , and many more topics. 


Talk to us and let us train your housekeeping on-site. 

Butler training


Game lodges are now moving away from the traditional waiter/ bartender setup and introducing butlers. Butlers in a game lodge assume the role of a waiter, bartender, and more personalized service to the guests, like setting up for romantic bush dinners, exclusive game drivers, etc.


Whether you want to start offering the personalized butler service in your game lodge or you already have one in place, we are the best trainers. Talk to us and we will provide the training on-site.

Refresher Courses


Our game lodge staff refresher courses are very unique. First, we assess your lodge-specific requirements and then we work to develop tailored training programs to suit your specific needs, not the one-size-fits-all kind of approach. Our clients are happy with our service. Let us train your lodge staff to deliver beyond 5-star service.
