Hear from our students and staff

I had the most amazing 6 months with Bushwise and cannot praise highly enough the quality of training and friendliness of all the staff. The experience and knowledge I gained goes far beyond what I expected, with trainers passing on information that you cannot possibly learn in textbooks! The Bushwise campus is the perfect balance between a professional training environment and a family atmosphere where you instantly feel safe and comfortable in the bush. As an international wanting to get into the industry there are additional challenges compared to South Africans, but again the support and patience from Bushwise was and still is incredible!
