The past 6 months with Bushwise have been nothing short of amazing. Of course it has been filled with highs, lows, & things that could be done differently but overall, the experiences I have had living in the bushveld of Africa will forever be life changing. From observing elephant behavior on the porch of our tents to learning from the best trainers in the industry, the knowledge gained from the Bushwise course exceeded every expectation I had. Living & training on a reserve in Greater Kruger provided an opportunity that not many will get to experience in this life and provided lessons that simply can't be taught from reading a textbook. One can't say enough about the trainers we had in creating this environment and the patience & efforts they exerted to ensure everyone succeeded during this course.
As an international student, there are many frustrations of trying to get the opportunity to crack into the conservation industry in South Africa but the staff at Bushwise offer patience, insight & support to help give you the best opportunity possible.

It’s a heavy workload but if you come to learn, you’ll be rewarded greatly.
