What's the course about?

Our Nature Enthusiast Wildlife Course is the perfect way to increase your knowledge of the natural world and immerse yourself in Africa’s diverse flora and fauna. Our FGASA-endorsed wildlife course takes you a step further than volunteering. It is perfect for people who want to have a more in-depth wildlife experience and learn more about the environment they are in. Six weeks in Zimbabwe will provide you with detailed practical and theoretical knowledge of the natural environment.

What will be covered?

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

What makes this wildlife course unique?

Our Nature Enthusiast Wildlife Course is based on a family-run conservancy in Zimbabwe, home to ten black and eight white rhinos, three elephants, a range of other large and small animals, and more than 150 bird species. Students will manage wildlife research projects which contribute to long-term conservancy management and learn practical field research and data-gathering techniques, which can be applied across many conservation and wildlife careers.
