One such course that may be available to you is the Track and Sign course. This is a short course that only runs a few days in duration but is packed full of experiences that you may never have imagined.
What you will learn from a course that falls within this category is how to read the signs that nature presents that otherwise go unnoticed. While here in South Africa there is a multitude of nature signs that once you have detected them you will continuously be on the lookout for, not only when you visit that this country a but any other time that you are enjoying nature.
During your learning you will be able to identify the trails left by mammals as a well as other wonderful creatures of nature such as amphibians and arthropods. You will discover how to track animals that you may not even know have been in the vicinity or may even still be there. If you have been planning on some bush experiences during your time here in South Africa then why not turn it into a learning experience? Some of the courses being offered span a three day period, and taking these three days out of the standard tourist activities would certainly make your trip here much more memorable.
If this sounds like something of interest to you then you will definitely want to start your research early as to who in the region may be offering this course so that you can determine the dates and times and plan your stay in South Africa around this.
