Game Ranger Training

If you’re looking to take your passion for Africa and its wildlife to the next level, one of our game ranger training courses is ideal. You can train as a Game Ranger on the Eastern Cape of South Africa, volunteer at an endangered species centre or work with our award-winning friends at the Shamwari Game Reserve to improve their conservation efforts. We have a variety of courses (and locations) available to ensure that you get the best fit for your needs.

All of our game ranger training courses are run by wildlife professionals, focusing on field guide work and best practice in dangerous game areas. The courses blend practical hands on work with theoretical training to introduce participants to all the skills needed by professional game rangers. The complexity of these courses vary, but each one offers an incredible unique experience that is not to be missed!
