In July 2019, Garmont pledged their support to GCC and the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, by equipping every single field ranger with a pair of T8 Bifida Garmont Tactical boots. This lightweight, multi-terrain tactical boot is suitable for heavy loads and demanding field conditions across varied terrain from mud-soaked trails to arid desert sands, steep slopes, and sheer rock faces. This support has enabled the rangers of Timbavati to walk hundreds of thousands of kilometers in the harsh environment of the African bush. The high ankle support of the boot gives rangers further confidence against snake, scorpions and spider bites when walking through long grass and dense foliage. The team’s morale was lifted through this tactical contribution and rangers now have further confidence to perform their duties, while increasing their chances of returning to their families and communities after the grueling tasks of the job.
