The late Nick More (1967 – 2013) is the inspiration behind the NJ MORE Field Guide College, which embodies our wish to continue our long legacy of passionate, highly skilled and authentic natural ambassadors who believe in conservation and take pleasure in sharing their passion with other people.
The NJ MORE Field Guide College is situated within the malaria-free Marakele National Park (76,000 ha), which forms part of the pristine Waterberg Biosphere. Contrasting majestic mountains landscapes, grass-clad hills, plains and valleys characterize this spectacular area. The big five roam free, and the reserve is heaven to an impressive variety of wildlife, including rare species like aardwolf, bat-eared foxes or pangolin.
Future Safari Guides need real insights in conservation techniques! Our students can therefore be exposed to game captures, animal notching and more as we work closely with the Ecologists/Vet in the park. This provides a deeper understanding and helps to educate future guests on a higher level.
Our scenic bush-camp will make you feel at home! Professional facilities provide the ideal living and training environment. We offer very comfortable accommodation in spacious tents on stilts with en-suite bathrooms. The camp offers electricity, internet access and cell phone reception as well as a library. Pool table, darts and our bush-gym ensure camp-fun between bush-activities. NEW: Our swimming pool invites for a refreshing splash during hot summer months.
We are accredited by The Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA), which is endorsed by The Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA).
FGASA sets the very high renown standards in the industry and constantly monitors that they are adhered to. The FGASA qualification is well acknowledged in Africa, USA, UK, Dubai.
