Sign up now and make new memories!
Our next course starts 09 October 2019.  Don’t miss the experience of a lifetime!

Although this course forms the foundation for a career in field guiding, it is also perfect for a gap year experience or extended safari.

The course offers a comprehensive knowledge base for careers in nature and conservation across the globe.  The principals of taxonomy, ecology, animal behaviour, weather & climate and astronomy, to name just a few, apply whatever continent you may be on.

You will leave with a wealth of knowledge that will enrich every visit you make to wilderness areas for the rest of your life.
