First of all, ANT would like to congratulate all of our students on passing this year's Correspondence Course qualification... You are all incredible people and fANTastic field guides!
Week two has been even more thrilling than the first as our students put in everything they have in order to ace the FGASA level one exam and the practical assessment. All the hard work definitely paid off as each and every one of them passed beautifully!

The students had the opportunity of driving the game-viewer whilst preparing for the practical assessment, followed by an African "sundowner" to end off another busy yet beautiful day in the bushveld. The amount one can learn in such a short period of time is amazing and it is incredible to witness. Another highlight was when we decided to sit at a gorgeous bird hide and wait to see what comes for a drink. The first ones to come for a visit were kudu, followed by waterbuck and blue wilderbeest. Three impressive giraffe were next. This is always a special sight! Just as we thought it couldn't get better... A Side-striped Jackal decided to trot down to the water to quench its thirst. This is yet again a rare and awesome experience.

Can you believe all of this in two weeks?? I can now say that everyone will look at the African bush with new eyes which will never stop learning and seeing all the unbelievable things that mother nature has to offer.
