Guide Licence Training Scholarships.
From 2019 we will be funding a number of agreed places each year for porters to complete their guide training at College of African Wildlife Management. This programme takes 4 weeks and on successful completion leads to the award of the official guide's licence by the national park authority.
The advertising, recruitment and selection process will be conducted by the college and our local Tanzanian trekking partner African Walking Company will be providing our awardees with all the equipment they need to camp for free at the college during the programme. Applicants can find full details of how to apply here.
