Testimonials From Past Students

“I would like to thank you and the team at MORE Field Guide College for giving Tyron a life changing experience. I was very worried that it would be too much for him to learn in 60 days, however with the guidance of Danie, the MORE team and Tyron’s hard work he managed to achieve his goal. He is super chuffed and came home a different and more confident person.” – Ian, father of Tyron, student from South Africa

“I feel hugely privileged to have been fortunate enough to have spent the time that I have with Phil (and now Bijense too!). I only wish it could have been longer! The knowledge and passion that he has, and is willing to share with us to enable us to not just grow as guides but as people, is inspiring. It is amazing to have been able to learn from such a legend of the industry. His dedication towards us is unbelievable. It is something I have definitely learnt from.” – Caitlin, student from South Africa

“My time at MORE has been the best 6 months of my life. The day to day experiences in the African bush has been something that no amount of money could ever buy. The instructors are hilariously entertaining and are truly kings of the bush. Their level of knowledge and passion for nature is truly something one can only hope to achieve. The 3 meals a day are delicious and prepared by the fabulous chef – and they cater for vegetarians too! The staff at the college are truly kind and caring and are always there for you no matter what. There are no words to describe my love for the college, its staff and the people. I can honestly say they made my dreams come true.” – Lucy, student from South Africa
