Take your ultimate nature experience to a whole new level with ANT's tracking course! Learn the language of the bush in prime African bushveld, teeming with all things wild and wonderful. This course will enable you to interpret the signs that nature has left behind. You wil be able to identify the spoor of mammals, reptiles, arthropods and amphibians, as well as their behavioural signs! Learn the 'tricks of the trade' in order to follow and find animals. Expect to look at the bush with brand new eyes and open up a whole new world of nature...through tracking!

The course has been designed for guides and nature enthusaists alike and will add to all your future walking experiences in the bush. You will spend three full days sharpening your observation skills and learning to identify spoor and dung and a variety of other animal signs as well as interpreting what action took place according to those signs. On the final morning, we take you through an assessment which will challenge you in a fun kind of way! This course gives excellent preparation for people wanting to later achieve the CyberTracker qualifications.

Since the course falls over a weekend, anyone can attend, no matter what your occupation!
