Tour Guiding Leadership

Learn English and Fanagalo in Wolmaransstad, North West, South Africa

The Area & School

Tour Guiding Leadership is a truly unique experience for those wanting to immerse themselves in the culture and heritage of South Africa. With TGL, English-speaking students will have the opportunity to learn the native language of South Africa, Fanagalo, and non-native English speakers can learn English with the intensive language courses that the school offers.

Classes are located at the Lindbergh Lodge (a popular destination for shooting films!) boasting an East African-style safari setting. Students have the opportunity to experience open savannah plains, abundant with wildlife, stretching out for miles around the school. In addition, the center where classes are held is open at all times for students to perfect their language learning skills. This is not your average immersion trip, and while all activities are safe and accessible to everyone, adventure is guaranteed with TGL.
