Game Ranger Course in South Africa

One of the most 'South African' experiences is the chance to do a Game Ranger Course in a Wildlife Park. It's every boys dream, every man's fantasy, but not just for them. Anyone - male or female - who has a passion for wildlife and nature, loves animals and has a special interest in living in the bush - will feel at home immediately once setting foot on the grounds of a game reserve in South Africa.

In 25 days we offer a fascinating, dynamic, intensive, adventurous, practical and theoretical Wildlife Game Ranger Course, which focuses on all there is to know, feel, smell and taste of Africa's wildlife.
You will gain in-depth knowledge about nature, ecology and wildlife of South Africa. Yes, we also have two game drives (sometimes even three, sometimes by foot) a day, we do encounter all five of them, we even get up, close and personal with the animals. Because that's what real rangers do.

However, this particular game ranger course in the Limpopo province is a tad different. Why? Because it's not your average game ranger course, it's a customized wildlife ranger course. Meaning we altered the course slightly, so to incorporate as much extra 'fun and adventure' as possible, without downgrading the quality or intensity of the ranger course. And we succeeded.

Our game ranger course includes these special treats and features in the middle of South Africa's wildlife:
- 2-day survival and sleep out in the bush
- 3 workshops in the park with a professional wildlife photographer
- Driving lessons in a 4X4
- Hikes and outings in the beautiful unspoilt wilderness areas, the caves and the mountains of the Waterberg
- Swimming in the waterfalls
- Authentic South African Braai
- Wild flower experiences
- Visit to the white lion centre,
- Sundowner on the hanglip view point
- Night drives
... and many more


You will be staying 2 per tent in canvas bow tents which are built on low decks in the middle of the bush. Nights are spent listening to the African sounds around a roaring campfire in our rustic, tented bush camp or learning more about the stars or nocturnal animals. There are communal gas heated showers & toilet.  All meals are prepared for you by our qualified chef. The true African ranger experience in the bush for 25 full days!

This customized Game Ranger Course is not only available to people wishing to enter the industry as professional field guides, on the contrary, but for anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of the African bush, is looking for an adventurous holiday experience or wants to experience nature and wildlife to the fullest. So whether you've just finished school and are on your gap year, study biology or landscape management and looking for the 'real' thing, are on your sabbatical and want to live the boy's dream, have taken a career break or are retired,... or anything? This wildlife game ranger course in South Africa is suitable and amazing for all students!

This extraordinary game ranger course could be a valuable extension or ending of your time as a volunteer or your internship in South Africa. Or, it could be a fun part of your travels in South-Africa. However, the course and true wildlife experience itself is a great reason to get to South Africa straight away!
