Ranger course in Southern Africa
Your training time as a Professional Field Guide will be spent in four different camps (Selati, Karongwe, Makuleke and Mashatu) in South Africa and Botswana. The sequence of the camp stays varies according to the course date. After you have spent six months on the practical and theoretical training, you will have the opportunity to implement your newly acquired knowledge as a field guide for a further six months in various lodges. On request, we will gladly prepare a precise schedule and a detailed list of the course contents for you.
In South African Selati, Makuleke and Karongwe, as in Botswanian Mashatu, you will learn all the necessary skills required by a Professional Safari Guide. These include survival strategies in the wild, handling a rifle and medical aspects. Your training will focus on the extensive and fascinating animal and plant kingdoms of Southern Africa. Encounters with intriguing birds, fish, reptiles and mammals will be part of your daily routine. You will learn how to get close up to them and study their behaviour. Subsequently you will be able to put this knowledge to practical use during your 5-month stay in an African lodge.
Enjoy an unforgettble year, surrounded by Southern Africa's wild nature, and become a skilled nature guide able to lead guests safely through the African bush!
