Lowveld Trails Co. FGASA Endorsed Training Providers
Apprentice Trails Guide Course and Lead Trails Guide Workshop:
The FGASA accredited 22-day Apprentice Trails Guide Course and the 28-day Lead Trails Guide Workshop are both conducted from a variety of properties within the Greater Kruger National Park.
There is a limited number of participants per course, ensuring personalized attention from the course facilitators and as much first-hand experience for the candidates as possible.
Although the primary objective is to achieve the Lead or Back-Up Trails Guide qualifications, we place strong emphasis on the ethos surrounding trails guiding, the necessary bush skills required for multi-day trails and holistic environmental interpretation. Mentorship Trails:
3 Night ‘Primitive Trails’ for aspiring Trails Guides with the minimum required FGASA qualifications. The objectives of the Trails Guide mentorship Trails are to:
1) Facilitate the logging of walking hours and potentially dangerous game encounters under an experienced mentor,
2) Expose junior Trails Guides to the ethos of multi-day Primitive Trails, and
3) Propagate a holistic Trails Guide culture across all guiding sectors. Assessments:
The experienced team at Lowveld Trails Co. are accredited Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) assessors that conduct Advanced Rifle Handling (ARH), Apprentice Trails Guide & Lead Trails Guide assessments.
