Leopard Trails experience: junior ranger course (for kids)Back
The Junior Ranger Course, run by Leopard Trails exclusively for their guests, opens up a whole new world to young explorers. The program takes place during game drives and in and around camp, with short walks that include tracking animals, a cosmic safari (astronomy); learning bush survival techniques, game-spotting competitions and it concludes with a nature quiz and a Ranger’s Test.
The Junior Ranger Course takes place in stages during a child’s stay at the camp. During game drives, kids will learn bird watching techniques and how to spot local animal tracks including deer, wild boar, leopard, elephant and even dog tracks. On the walks, which happen after game drives and a short distance away from camp, kids will learn how to spot burrows, how to identify edible plants and basic navigation using the sun and moon. Upon completion of the course, these proud achievers will be quizzed and awarded certificates to recognize their new-found knowledge.
