We aim to empower our tracker graduates with the skills and knowledge necessary to become ambassadors for and custodians of Africa’s wildlife by bringing authenticity and accuracy to environmental education, wildlife protection, eco-tourism, monitoring and research.
It is our absolute focus to continually improve the standards of our training and the related achievements of our graduates.
The Academy places much importance on the life skills of our students. Their ability to conduct themselves in a professional and enthusiastic manner is particularly significant to us.
We aim to create a culture of curiosity among our students by constantly encouraging them to question and learn new aspects of tracking, and therefore to advance tracking as a profession.
The Tracker Academy aims to contribute significantly to the current knowledge of tracking by unearthing new discoveries in the subject of tracking.

The SACT Tracker Academy is a not-for-profit organisation which trains disadvantaged rural people in the traditional skills of wildlife tracking. The accreditation of its tracker training programme with the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA) made the Tracker Academy the first tracker training school to achieve this distinction in South Africa. More than 94% of our trainee graduates have found permanent employment within the tourism industry.
