Compiled and Written in collaboration with TRIDEN Hospitality Staff Investment Projects, this groundbreaking course is the  first of it’s kind and one of the most concise Lodge Management learning programmes currently available…

Drawing upon the experience and expertise of various  well respected facilitators and prominent role-players in the African Safari Lodge         industry, this course is ideal for those seeking to enter the Game Lodge industry as a career of choice - it is also ideal for already             established lodges to review current operational standards and               practices through staff development.

The ABT CERTIFICATE IN GAME LODGE MANAGEMENT is recognised and widely accepted throughout the industry, not only  locally, but across Africa!!!

This exciting course is divided into two parts:

During the first 10 days of the course students focuses extensively on the theories behind Lodge Management across all departments.     During this time they also get the opportunity to put knowledge into practice in the running a fully operational Bush Camp.

This component of the course is focused primarily on practical training and assessments as students are challenged to put their newly learned knowledge into practice across all lodge operations and departments at one of our partner lodges or the ABT DRAKENSBERG CAMPUS (Which is also home to a 200-sleeper fully operational game lodge).
