The Nature College believes that Field Guides should not only have a sound knowledge of the natural environment, but also have a full understanding of nature conservation and its importance as a whole. For this reason a unique 10-week course was formulated. The course is presented on a working game reserve in the safe and malaria-free Western Cape. The course includes a guiding qualification, a national certificate in natural resource guardianship, a tracking qualification as well as a first aid qualification. The course also includes an exciting study tour where students experience other South African biomes and also take part in activities such as guided walks in dangerous game areas. The 10-week course is available twice a year and to ensure quality training and personal attention, a total of only six students is allowed per course. See website for full details.
