Join the 65-day Introductory Field Guide and Wildlife Career course, which covers FGASA modules and practical skills such as proper 4×4 driving techniques, wildlife tracking, animal behavior, wildlife photography and monitoring. A certificate is provided at the end of the program and builds on your leadership skills, bush experience, camp management and logistic skills, basic vehicle troubleshooting, and more.
