What is a Pathfinders Course?

Pathfinders are taking the field guiding world by storm. The world’s first mobile training course introduces you to some of Zimbabwe’s most iconic locations and exposes you to the exciting and challenging scenarios the African bush can present you with.

With experience in multiple locations,  exposure to different wildlife, vegetation and challenges, you instantly become a more desirable candidate when looking for that dream job or internship in Africa, with your diverse experience in the bush.

Upon successfully completing your 60-day Field Guide Course, you will earn an NQF2 (formally Level 1) FGASA qualification, which is considered the baseline requirement for entering into the safari industry in Southern Africa. From here, you can start your career by gaining experience before you embark on Level 2 and eventually, maybe Level 3! Pathfinders are the perfect starting point for a career in African nature and wildlife.

For those just looking to explore their passion for nature and wanting to discover the African bush in all its glory, our Nature Enthusiast course is right up your alley.
