Becoming a Ranger
Calling all rangers in the making
The heroes of any safari are without doubt our khaki-clad field guides with their seemingly magical abilities to find animals from smudges left in the dirt, or to navigate impossible obstacles with their powerful 4×4 vehicles. They spout fascinating facts about every bird, insect or reptile they find, and are founts of unlimited knowledge on animal behaviour. Theirs is a trade all young minds secretly wish to master….and the good news is now they can.
In this series, we’ll teach all you rangers-in-the-making everything you need to know on your mission to become a ranger. Got your sunnies? Then let’s go….

Join &Beyond guide, Matthew Smith, and learn how guides identify individual leopards at Kirkman’s Kamp, Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa. And discover how this helps to conserve this illusive cat in South Africa.
It has been our goal to bring the fun-filled learning, associated with travel, into your homes by introducing your children to our Becoming a Ranger series and the accompanying thought-provoking missions your young ones can do at home.
Lion-size fun with animals and yoga
We all connect with nature in our own way. For some, a run in the outdoors is the perfect way to invigorate mind and body, for others a more subtle connection is preferred, like breathing in the deep shade of an ancient tree. In WILDchild TV: Yoga we offer our nature-loving wild children the mechanism to stretch like a giraffe, bend with the wind and sun themselves like lizards all in the sanctity of their own homes. This series offers a virtual connection with nature and a physical connection to our bodies through movement. Aimed at 9-14 year olds, any young person and even those just young-at-heart, can join in.
