THE Wilderness Leadership School, based at the Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve in Yellowwood Park, Durban, will host an information morning for its January 2018 intake for the Nature Guide Training Course (FGASA Level 1) on Saturday, 18 November from 10am to noon.

The school provides opportunities for trailists from around the globe to experience real wilderness, which in turns helps to instill a sense of appreciation for the needs and laws of the natural environment, as well as a meaningful personal growth experience. But besides the various trails, the school understands the constant and urgent need for more passionate people to become qualified nature guides to continue educating and exposing people to the importance of conserving our natural heritage.

The training is offered for a period of three months and students are able to live at the school’s accommodation in the reserve, or live out. The course work includes theory and practical sessions in Tembe Elephant Park, as well as a first aid training. Experts in various fields are invited to give presentations, and students are also given an opportunity early on in the course to experience a five day wilderness trail in the iMfolozi Wilderness Area.

“We do not just want to train guides, we want to train exceptional guides, guides with unparalleled understanding of our planet and her ecosystems, guides who can use their time with tourists to spread the conservation message, guides who can become future conservation leaders, guides who can open people’s eyes to the power of mother nature and wilderness. But this course is also so much more, it’s an opportunity for personal growth, for learning new skills and an experience of a lifetime,” said Cherryl.

The information morning for prospective students takes place at the Wilderness Leadership School. Contact [email protected] to book a seat. Visit: www.wildernesstrails.org.za.
