To be a guide in the Kruger you will need to be FGASA accredited, you will need your PDP and First Aid qualification. Being from South Africa is a big plus as it makes it easier to obtain some of these things. Im from England and there are many many companies that offer various courses in SA that will assist you in gaining these qualifications. I studied briefly at the Bush Academy in Thabazimbi (i belive it no longer exists) but i got no assistance in obtaining my PDP so i worked in a private reserve where the PDP was overlooked unfortunatly i was not able to guide in Kruger without my PDP but i did conclude my training there in the southern region of the park. I then spent two years guiding in the caprivi region of Namibia where no formal qualifications were required but the level of guiding still high due to the experiance of some of the head guides (on the job training).
If you were to go on to any of the FGASA acredited courses you will reach your goal and share the beauty of the bush
