The Game Lodge Management course has been written in collaboration with Wilderness Safaris and is the first true Game Lodge Management course to have been released to the public. 

Drawing on over 30 years of experience in the creation and running of lodges, this offering is suitable for those seeking to enter this rewarding industry, or for safari companies that strive to emulate the accomplishments of one of the World’s most successful lodge groups.

The Certificate in Game Lodge Management is widely recognised as the best and accepted throughout the industry. In terms of applications and permits, it also provides a lot of credibility that allows for motivation with local African governments.

All assessment is delivered entirely online and is automated. The assessment which we’ve called “take the test” (top right in each component) consists of between 10 and 30 true/false and multiple-choice questions. There is one test for each of the components of a course. Students may attempt these tests as many times as required until they have achieved the passing mark. Once a test is passed, it cannot be taken again.
