Savannah Guides invites you to El Questro in the amazing Kimberley for our next Savannah Guides School. This four day workshop will showcase the dramatic landscape of the region, its frontier history and the enormous tourism future of Australia’s North West.

Our activities will explore the park environment and develop a range of guiding skills.
