African Guide Academy

Bushcraft & Survival Training Course, Okavango Delta, Botswana.

This basic 7-day course provides you with overall bush experience as well as accomplishing a good understanding of each module.

The Okavango Guiding school is owned and operated by the Reed family. The well known Reed brothers, Grant and Brent who starred in “Safari Brothers” which aired internationally on National Geographic Wild.

Our courses are very hands on and our students learn from day to day experiences that the wilderness has to offer.

Our training courses allow students, not only to learn the skills of conducting a game-drive, but also how to drive a motor boat and pole a mokoro (dug-out canoe) on the waterways of the Okavango. When the water levels are high we are able to make our River Runner into an riparian classroom, studying the unique aquatic world of the Okavango Delta and learning about the local birds. At the end of the day we find a suitable island to camp on, and, hopefully, catch some fresh bream for dinner.
