A regular question is posed to us:
“Why did you choose the hyena as your logo?”
The answer is simple – the hyena is the greatest tracker in the animal kingdom. It is without equal in this regard. Until fairly recently the hyena was largely misunderstood. It is in fact a highly intelligent, successful and exceptionally strong animal. Its sense of smell, hearing and sight is acutely developed. It is not only a scavenger but also a capable hunter. Hyenas are caring mothers and extraordinary caretakers of the next generation. The logo showing the formidable form of a hyena on the prowl is not an easily forgettable image.
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.
