Close Protection Service

The ever-changing technological, political and socio-economic landscape of Africa means that you cannot afford to take your security lightly. Besides the obvious risks of traveling in Africa, “safe” situations, laws, and even governments can change in the blink of an eye, putting you in real danger.

ELF’s Close Protection Services help you avoid or reduce your risk of being stranded in a foreign land or being confronted by hostile situations. A diverse skill-set is required to effectively avoid, manage or resolve these situations, and unless you or someone you are with possesses these skills you are at the mercy of your environment. Unfortunately, these threats become a reality for many travelers, and even more so for high net-worth individuals, corporate executives, non-profit / NGO representatives, and VIP’s. ELF Security Solutions specializes in providing Close Protection Services that help you achieve your objectives smoothly and with as little risk as possible.

Poaching is a complex topic that cannot be solved by myopic top-down enforcement approaches. Crime syndicates may be fuelling the poaching of elephants and rhinos but they are not the source of the problem.

ELF follows the International Anti-Poaching Foundation’s (IAPF) Akashinga project model which is a unique community-driven conservation model, that empowers disadvantaged citizens to restore and manage a growing network of communal wildlife areas.

To ensure we continue achieving this objective we need to train an increasing number of local rangers to the highest possible standards of operational effectiveness & capability. This can only be done by providing the best and most appropriate up-to-date “knowledge and skills training” available. To do this we have instructors of the highest caliber with a proven track record in law enforcement, military, and wildlife management.
