Wow! I’ve made two visits to African Guide Academy and Kwapa training camp to learn about the wonder that is the Okavango Delta with the best trainers - JC and Sevara. I did the Nature Guide course in 2022 and two weeks of the Trails Guide course this year.

I researched a lot of options before choosing AGA. The camp is on the edge of the Delta and the only other vehicles you will see belong to AGA. It’s remote - no fences to be seen and there’s plenty of wildlife in and around camp. The staff are exceptional, the meals delicious, the tents comfortable. There is nothing finer than waking up to the dawn chorus or wondering what is snuffling past your tent at 2 am!

This year we had phenomenal elephant encounters on foot, along with buffalo. In the two weeks that I was there we also tracked lions and another group had leopard encounters. It was thrilling to learn about approaching PDAs ( that’s Potentially Dangerous Animals) And being with a group of like minded people, those as passionate about wildlife as I am and as eager to learn, meant that we soon felt like old friends.

AGA sponsors a local guide with each course. About half of our group of ten were doing the course for the BQA or FGASA qualifications, the others for enrichment.

I also love that AGA allows one to split the course if one has time constraints. I plan on going back for another two weeks to finish Trails Guide. It truly is a life changing experience
