Limpopo Field Guiding Academy has moved! After using a number of excellent locations throughout Limpopo, Mpumalanga and Gauteng over the past 14 years, LFGA has established a home base on the Mongena Game Reserve, located within the greater Dinokeng Game Reserve. Situated on the border of Limpopo and Gauteng provinces, Mongena boasts a wealth of biodiversity, due largely to the fact that it falls within a number of transitional zones. Not only is Mongena transitional between the arid western half of the country and its moister eastern counterpart; it also falls just within the Savanna biome, with remnants of Grassland close by.
Those factors, coupled with the combination of Big 5, Malaria Free and being a mere 90 minutes from OR Tambo international airport, make Mongena and LFGA the ideal training venue. With the usual dosage of passion and enthusiasm that have become hallmarks of the LFGA brand, our trainers have really maximised the opportunities afforded by this excellent venue. Since establishing Tau Camp (the student training camp) at Mongena during 2016, our students and trainers have enjoyed excellent sightings and interactions with various Big 5 species, indeed it is quite common to have lion, elephant or buffalo passing by camp and at times, through camp!
Birding, tracking and dangerous game training have always been major draw-cards at LFGA and the new concession area has produced excellent opportunities for all of these disciplines, as well as the regular, NQ based safari guide, field guide, nature guide and game ranger training programmes that make up the core business of LFGA.
Whether you are South African or international, LFGA has options for you to choose from. Not only do we cater for the aspirant field guide who’s goal is a national qualification, but also any naturalist or adventurer who would like to broaden their horizons and immerse themselves in nature. Being endorsed by FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa), AFGA (African Field Guides Association) and CyberTracker, Limpopo Field Guiding Academy and its venue at Mongena, Dinokeng are the ideal choice as a training provider!
