Balule Nature Reserve

Big 5

Our students, from every continent in the world, spend 3-4 months living and learning at the field guide training centre on the Grietjie section of the Balule Nature Reserve, a “Big 5″ reserve that borders the world famous Kruger National Park.

88-day level 1 Field Guide course

Our level 1 course will run over 88 days to enable international students to still attend a course without the need for additional visas.

Trails Guide Backup Course

This course aims to combine the level 1 course with the theory aspect of the back-up Trails Guide qualification included.
