What an experience...

The Ranger 'Lite' course at Somkhanda Game Reserve was the most exhilarating experience I have ever done.
Nights under the stars, days in the bush and the best classroom in the world.
We stayed at an amazing camp called Scotia, the environment was magical and the quality of the teaching that was delivered by Picket Chabwedzeka who is a expert trails guide was outstanding!
Each day was different, we went from walking and tracking animals and learning how to identify all the different tracks and scat, not only with our sight but using all our other senses.
We had an amazing adventure of spending a night at one of the dams recording all the animals that came to drink.
This course is a real eye opener to what rangers have to do on a day to day basis. I learnt so much on this course and I would do it again in a heart beat to be able to gain more knowledge. Definitely worth the experience.
