Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Advise on conservation training / jobs

Hi,

I'm looking for a proper training Field guide / ranger in Africa. One day I would like to find a job in nature conservation and since I don't have the right degree, I would like to put some experience on my resume. I thinkt following a training in the African wilderness, would be very enriching.
I want to find a training which may last a couple of months (up to a year), and for a reasonable price of course. There's a couple of websites that offer such trainings, mainly in South Africa and they're probably good ones, but also a bit expensive. I just don't want to pay extra just because it's a training in Kruger NP. I guess there must be countries or organisations offering cheaper trainings.

So is there anyone who's done such a training or knows anything more about it? Suggestions?
You'd realy help me!

Cheers,
Hannes
