5-Day Track & Sign Course

The 5-day course will open up a new world to the naturalist, with the focus being on the identification and interpretation of the tracks and signs left behind by the incredible diversity of wildlife in the South African Lowveld. As your ‘Environmental literacy’ skills are honed, you will become more situationally aware, and will therefore feel more at home in your natural environment. All are welcome to participate, whether you are a Field Guide wanting to upskill and gain the qualification, or a nature-enthusiast.

The course follows the CyberTracker structure and standards, culminating in a CyberTracker Track & Sign Assessment.

“The CyberTracker Universal Tracker Certification covers the fundamental principles of tracking as well as the finer details and sophisticated aspects of tracking. The evaluation is in the form of a practical field test. Mistakes are corrected and explained continuously throughout the duration of the evaluation. This process identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate in order to develop the potential of each individual in accordance to his or her level of skill.”

Taking place over a period of 4 nights and 5 days based at our Tented Camp in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, this course is practical and intense, with an average of 7 to 8 hours spent in the field each day. There is a maximum number of eight participants per course, ensuring personalised attention from the course facilitators and as much firsthand experience for the candidates as possible.
