We’re extremely proud to announce 4 of our guides received their badges as official Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) guides having successfully completed and passed FGASA Level 1. This is the first group of Cape Canopy Tour guides to join the ranks of this professional association. A rigorous course, what makes this achievement exceptional is that our guides come from the local community, without tertiary education or other qualifications and have dedicated a great deal of time and effort to attain the understanding mevessary to pass both practical and theoretical components of Level 1 covering diverse subjects such as fauna, flora, geology, astronomy & weather.
As a company, we are closely aligned to FGASA’s vision of promoting a culture of professional guiding to ensure that our guests not only enjoy their ziplining adventure but have the unique opportunity to learn more about the endemic environment in the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve from our guides for a truly memorable and enriching experience.
Congratulations to Hazel Barnies, Tommy Adonis, Hilda Booyse and Operations Manager Brenhan van Niekerk with special thanks to FGASA trainer, Louis Willemse.
