Bush Skill Course (Ranger - beginners)

8
Days
Course
Besides practical skills there is also a little theory to learn. But of course this also happens in the bush.
How to deal with potentially dangerous situations? This is where you learn.
The mastery of traditional mokoros - dugout canoes - is also taught here.
Also the spying of tracks from the off-road vehicle has to be learned.
How do you get as close as possible to the animals? The correct approach is a real art.

Tour Details

Overview

The Bush Skills course is designed for international travellers seeking a personal African bush experience, full of wilderness adventure and new practical and theoretical knowledge.

This 7-day course at Kwapa Camp in the southern Okavango Delta teaches excerpts from the advanced courses for nature guides and hiking guides. This course is also an ideal introduction for guests who want an intensive self-drive safari. While there are informative "lectures", most of the training takes place in nature on foot, in 4x4 vehicles and, depending on water level, by boat and mokoro (dugout canoe) and covers basic survival techniques, 4x4 driving skills, wilderness hiking, animal tracking, facts about dangerous mammals, geology of the delta, astronomy for navigation and knowledge about birds and crops.
