Bushwise alumni are regularly featured on our social media platforms, in national and international press as well as on TV and radio shows.
Share your experiences
We love to hear your opinion! Not only on our own website, but on independent review websites as well. Let everyone know why you chose a Bushwise course and why others should as well. Please feel free to be honest, we are always happy to hear your feedback.
Share your experiences at a Bushwise event
Bushwise presents at multiple events every year, and is always looking for enthusiastic students who want to share their experiences. Who is better at explaining the course than people who’ve done it themselves? Past students who are willing to participate in a Bushwise presentation will be rewarded by our Alumni program.
Ben Hammond from the UK
“The Bushwise hospitality course was a great way to develop skills that you need to work in the industry. I took the 20 week course as part of my placement year for a hospitality management degree and couldn’t have been happier with the skills I learnt and have used to help me with my final year at university. It definitely developed my people skills and confidence as well as made me think more about what career path I want to go down. As well as this, it was great to see the beautiful country of South Africa and all the animals in their natural habitat.”

“I came back to Africa to fulfil all my dreams and I’ve done and experienced more than I could have imagined. I’ve made friends for life and stories people couldn’t beat back home!”
