“I still remember the taste of rusks dipped in rooibos tea, the first time I saw an elephant in the wild, the thrill of being on foot tracking a leopard, and the clarity of the southern cross in the night sky. Not only did I feel at home in South Africa and this course, I was able to learn bush skills, tracking methods, plant and animal identification, scientific research methods and primate behavioral patterns. These only scratch the surface of the amazing experiences this course has to offer!” – Claire H., Primates of South Africa, 2009
