The Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) accredited Trails Guide Workshops are conducted primarily in the Greater Kruger National Park over a period of 14 or 28 days. The objective is to engage in intensive activity and discussion on approaching dangerous game on foot and log walking hours & dangerous game encounters towards your FGASA Trails Guide qualifications (lead and Apprentice) under experienced mentors and assessors. Strong emphasis is placed on the ethos surrounding Trails Guiding, the necessary bush skills required for multi-day Trails and holistic environmental interpretation.
The 14 day Workshop will be facilitated by Brenden Pienaar and Wayne Te Brake, and they will be joined by Bruce Lawson and Lutz Otto on the 28 day Workshop. This is an unmatched opportunity for Trails Guide candidates to be intensively mentored by four experienced and active FGASA Trails Guides and assessors with no less than 45 000 walking hours between them.
