Birdlife South Africa FGASA Endorsed Training Providers
BirdLife South Africa runs FGASA Field Guide (NQF2) courses over a 2-month time period. Most of our courses cater for sponsored leaners from previously disadvantaged communities but we also make available at least one course annually for self-funded aspirant guides looking to make a career in the wildlife and birding tourism sector in South Africa. This course will be conducted over 3 months and will combine the NQF2 course with the Savanna Birding elective in addition.
Birdlife South Africa also offers an Specialist Savanna birding qualification to FGASA Specialist Guides wishing to improve their qualifications.
Our courses are conducted primarily on Grietjie Nature Reserve near Phalaborwa. The reserve falls within the boundaries of the Greater Kruger National Park making it an ideal location for all wildlife encounters.
