This blog was written by one of our trainers, Francois. With years of guiding experience, Francois shares some of the experiences he’s shared with the students this semester.

We’re at the end of the first semester and what a semester it has been! Excited, energised, and full of enthusiasm, the new group has really grabbed the bull by the horns and dug right into the work and duties associated with campus life at Bushwise.

With the first test already done and dusted we’ve had the opportunity to have some spectacular sightings, both on campus and while on game drive at the Greater Makalali Game Reserve, which hosts a variety of game including the Big Five, cheetahs and wild dogs.

On campus, students have had the opportunity to see rare species. This included an aardvark, and the remains of a bushbuck that was taken down by the resident leopard. It has been very exciting times around the Bushwise campus.

We have had many chats and laughs around the campfire. One can feel the group’s excitement for the start of their new careers and new lives. After all, this is a lifestyle and not just a mere job. It’s a career and life that will always be rewarding and fulfilling. It’s accompanied by adventures, friendship, and an unrelenting love of nature and all its miracles.

I can only wish each and everyone one of them the best for the future and congratulate them for the best decision of their lives.
