Game Ranger Training

Limpopo field guiding academy offers the ideal environment and resources for comprehensive game ranger training. To be a game ranger, there are many practical skills needed as well as knowledge about different aspects of nature. This includes plants, animals and the earth.

Among other things you will learn:

Animal behaviour

To work in the African bush, you will be required to know all about the different animals in your ecosystem. For proper judgment to allow you interact with the animals, you will be required to learn about different animal behaviour, eg: what upsets them or what intimidates them. This will not only be crucial for reading the environment, but also for your safety as you are able to predict different animals’ behaviour.

Tracking and spoor identification

One of the main objectives of game ranger training is to give the trainee ability to identify and track different animals through the bush. You are taught to use different material like trails and tracks and droppings to identify different animals living in the area, and track them if need be.

Geology

Geology on the other hand allows you read the earth. Different histories are recorded in the rocks and the ground, and South Africa has numerous geological features unique to the country. This will allow you to get a detailed insight of the ecosystem and greater understanding of the plant and animal environments.

Astronomy

As a game ranger, you are also required to be able to read the celestial bodies. These include the stars, comets and other planets. This enables you to read the weather and predict weather changes, a vital skill when working in the bush. In addition to being crucial, learning to read the stars can also be very enjoyable and interesting.
