    Brief Overview

    Fancy becoming a game ranger in Africa? Then this project is for you! Spend eight weeks on a big 5 game reserve learning the theory and practical side of being a game ranger. The course will cover subjects from mammals to birdlife to cloud formation. At the end of the course you will write an examination where after you will receive a recognised qualification and will be able to work as a game ranger thereafter.

    Accommodation and Meals

    You will be accommodated in dorm rooms with males and females separate. You will have a lounge area with a fire place and TV to use during your leisure time. There will also be an entertainment room available with a pool table, table tennis board, dart board and a Big screen TV.

    You will receive 3 meals a day which will be prepared by the kitchen staff.


    The course is run by a FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa) accredited training and examination centre and is conducted by professional trainers and assessors.

    The course follows the FGASA syllabus, but you a will also get a chance to “volunteer” on the reserve as part of your practical training. Additionally, you will also do the first aid level 1 course during your 8 weeks.

    During your time at the project, you will cover different modules throughout the 8 weeks. This theory will be coupled with some practical work around the reserve such as fencing, game captures and game counts, assisting with the predators and much more.

    Please Note: The activities vary from time to time due to the weather.

    Whilst every effort is taken on the project to ensure a structured program, we are sure that you can appreciate the fact that the project operates in a dynamic environment and therefore it is difficult to provide participants with a set itinerary. Should you however require further information in this regard, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to assist you further.
