NJ MORE Professional (6 months):

Unwind from the hustle and bustle of civilization and spend an unforgettable time in the African bush. Learn everything that is needed to become a professional Field Guide: In-depth knowledge on mammals and their behaviour, identifying birds, plants, tracks and the stars of the amazing night-sky. Acquire the skills to approach big game on foot and drive a 4x4 vehicle. All this, while focussing on the ethics involved in being a true conservationist.

Setting Description:
The fully equipped training-camp is situated inside the Marakele National Park, which forms part of the pristine Waterberg Biosphere. Marataba is a private concession within the Park to which we have exclusive use. Contrasting majestic mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills and deep valleys characterise this spectacular area. The Big Five roam in Marataba’s untouched wilderness and the reserve is heaven for an impressive variety of wildlife and birds, including one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of the endangered Cape Vulture.
