Advice about gifts for staff
I've read here and been told by others that I should take some small gifts for the staff. I'd really appreciate some guidance about how much and for whom. I'll be hunting 8 days - plains game in Namibia with Omujeve.
When do you give the gifts? At the beginning? At the end? Do you give them all at once or a little at a time?
One person advised taking a Costco bag of hard candy. I did buy a bag at Costco, but it really seems excessive - 7 lbs!! What is reasonable? Do you hand out one piece at a time or just give a small bag with several pieces? Do you just give to the trackers and kids you meet along the way? Or, do you give to each staff member, your PH, etc.?
I thought that I would take a few little LED flashlights that with a company logo on them. Same questions - to whom, when?
My father used to run Ka-Bar cutlery. It goes without saying that I have more than a few knives. I thought that I'd take a pocket knife for the tracker(s). Should the PH also get one?
Is there anything else that I should take?
