I waited two years to join Bushwise after volunteering in South Africa in 2017 and I am so glad I did! The teachers were all incredible and I am lucky to have had the chance to learn from these men, Gerhard, Vaughan, and Ed. The experience that I have gained over the past six months is immeasurable. No experience can be without flaws and while those were at times aggravating I know that what I will remember for the rest of my life are the friendships I made, the lessons I learned, and the experiences I shared with people I have grown to love. This course is for passionate people with a specific interest in being a student and a teacher for the rest of your life. I am now uniquely well equipped to move forward in the industry of field guiding and I am excited to start working with volunteers at the start of the next year.
