Success stories

Greg Schmidt 

General Manager, Lions Valley Lodge

“ Limpopo Field Guiding Academies extensive FGASA courses given by the experienced training team is TOP-NOTCH. I left LFGA with a base of Knowledge that allowed myself to enter into the Industry with the confidence of success! And the passion to learn. Now after nearly 10 years in the industry, I can confidently say “I think LFGA is one of, if not the best training academy in operation.”  

Isaiah Banda

Reserve Manager, Madjuma Lion Reserve

My LFGA course made it possible to realise my dream of becoming a field guide. I went all the way to reserve manager because of the key that LFGA gave me to open the door that seemed to be heavily locked. With the LFGA course that door was opened with ease.”
