Our guides are experienced and qualified with FGASA (Field Guide Association of South Africa.)

Walk options:

Jama Bulwana

During one of Breathe Conservation’s reef clean-up events, local Jama Bulwana, developed an interest in the organisation and its values.

The team at Breathe recognized his passion and connection for environmental education work. Not long after their first meeting, Jama began the intensive Marine Guide training program and became certified with an NQF2 qualification endorsed by FGASA (Field Guide Association of South Africa.)

Jama’s skills, personality, and experience are invaluable to Breathe Conservation. He has been an incredible Marine Guide and is now upgrading to a full Nature Conservation Guide. He is looking forward to sharing his passion and knowledge with the community!
