The SAFARI RANGER PROGRAM is the opportunity of a lifetime for individuals wanting to kick-start a career in conservation; students looking for a unique gap-year opportunity; or for those just wanting to experience the African bush. 

COURSE OVERVIEW: 

This 12-month course will allow learners the opportunity to get a holistic overview of the different career fields and options available in the industry providing a basic theoretical and practical introduction to the skill- and competency- requirements of each sector. Upon successful completion, learners will receive a certificate and internal credit points for each course component that they successfully completed.

For one year you will be fully submerged into the African wilderness as you learn about; and experience life in the African bush. During the first six months of the program, students are subjected to an intensive induction and training period acquiring new skills and knowledge about the African Safari Lodge and Wildlife Conservation industry followed by an 5/6 month experiential work placement period on a wildlife reserve in Southern Africa, or Africa.

Whether you are dreaming of becoming a game ranger - working on a wildlife reserve to protect animals in their natural habitat, or working as a park warden in your home country, a safari guide taking guest on walks/drives in the wilderness, or hosting guests at one of the top safari lodges in Africa - a course of this depth of experience and learning will give you the footing you need for all of these inspirational career paths.

Apart from the valuable experience gained - students will be rewarded with a National NQF 2 Qualification, 2 recognized Certifications and no less than 12 Micro-qualification Certificates * which is suitable for international “credit point” accumulation and  (CV) purposes.
