We are sure all our prospective students are excited at the news that MORE Field Guide College is set to open a new campus in the Greater Kruger National Park region. This is a collaboration between MORE Family Collection, MORE Field Guide College, the More Community Foundation, and the Timbavati Foundation.

In its first year of operation in 2023, the new campus will host 42 community students on a sponsored Career Course programme, involving six months practical and six months experience in the field. This opportunity is offered by the More Community Foundation bursaries programme, is funded by the Tshikululu Trust, and is made possible by Anglo American Platinum.

CEO of MORE Family Collection, Robert More says, ““This is part of our commitment to addressing unemployment and building of skills in South Africa. Field guides are the educators of the safari landscape, getting guests to understand how important it is to protect and preserve these delicate eco-systems. These students become ambassadors for wildlife within their communities encouraging a conservation approach and the next group of future field guides.”

More Community Foundation and the Timbavati Foundation are both focused on community sustainability and education programmes and the synergy with the MORE Family Collection is clear. “The Timbavavati Foundation is excited about the opening of a new chapter with the MORE Family Collection,” says Charles de Villiers, Timbavati Foundation chairman. “The futures of young men and women are dependent on quality education and training, and this is where our partnership with the MORE Field Guide College will assist in growing them from strength to strength. We look forward to a long working relationship.”

Warden of Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Edwin Pierce adds: “This partnership will open doors for so many young and aspiring field guides and ensure that the passion for conservation and environmental education is instilled in future generations.”

“FGASA is proud to endorse the new MORE Field Guide College,” says Michelle du Plessis, FGASA managing director. “It is a privilege to support the MORE group in their endeavours to train passionate, dedicated guides, who share their vision to inspire guests from around the world to love and enjoy the bush. A second campus will make a significant impact in tackling FGASA’s strategy to transform the organisation and guiding sector.”

Our team is excited to be part of this incredible opportunity, and in time the Kruger campus will be opened to all our students so watch this space.
