What's the course about?

Our Nature Enthusiast Wildlife Course is the perfect way to increase your knowledge and appreciation of the natural world, and immerse yourself in Africa’s diverse flora and fauna. Taking you a step further than simply volunteering, our FGASA-accredited wildlife course is aimed at those wishing to experience a bush holiday, while also learning about the environment they are in. Six weeks in Zimbabwe will provide you with in-depth practical and theoretical knowledge of the natural environment.

What will be covered?

Participants will cover a huge range of topics and learn an immense amount about different environments, ecology and habitats. You will learn how to identify large and small mammals, track wildlife and interpret signs, and understand animal and bird behaviours. The course also teaches practical skills in bush survival and orienteering, and you will be exposed to current conservation techniques and challenges.

What makes this course unique?

The wildlife course is based on a family-run conservancy in Zimbabwe, home to seven black and four white rhino, three elephants, a range of other large and small plains game, and more than 400 bird species. Participants will manage wildlife research projects which contribute to long-term conservancy management and will learn practical field research and data gathering techniques which can be applied across many conservation and wildlife careers.
