The NATURE ENTHUSIAST COURSE has been designed with the serious

nature lover in mind…This 7-Day course is ideal for nature enthusiasts who simply wishes to improve their own knowledge and understanding of the bush.

The course is aimed at those who are looking for a more in-depth bush experience, but who does not want to do a career orientated course or become a Nature Guide.

The NATURE ENTHUSIAST COURSE provides for a highly informative and practical experience spending hours in the bush “making sense” of the natural world. Subjects covered include geology and ecology; astronomy; weather and climate; trees and grasses; reptiles, animal behaviour; animal tracks, approaching dangerous game; bush survival skills, and much more.
These subjects are taught through exciting wilderness walks and game drives each day as well as an interesting lecture with slides in our open-air bush classroom.

If you are an adventurous spirit wanting to gain a greater understanding of nature and the environment while experiencing the excitement of the bush, then this course is for you.

Students can also write the FGASA Nature Enthusiast Exam on completion of the course to be certified with an endorsed certificate from the organization.
