The Royal Malewane Apprenticeship Programme takes on two apprentice rangers with aptitude and potential on a rolling two-year cycle before sending them out into the industry in order to raise the quality of guiding in Southern Africa. Our tracker and ranger’s apprenticeship programmes ensure that valuable knowledge about wildlife is passed down to the next generation.
The aim of this 2 year apprenticeship is for a mentor, who has a minimum of ten years’ experience, to share and impart critical knowledge and an understanding of the complex nature of professional field guiding. Skills such as dealing with guest interactions, animal behaviour, and associated fauna and flora of the wilderness are passed on to our apprentice rangers. The mentors provide enthusiastic and motivated individuals with an opportunity to learn and understand critical practical skills.
