Since 1985, Louis Liebenberg witnessed the steep decline in indigenous tracking skills in southern Africa.
As a means to identify those dwindling few with excellent tracking skills, and to help rebuild a body of tracking knowledge, Liebenberg designed and provided the first CyberTracker Tracker Certification in the Thornybush Nature Preserve near Kruger National Park in 1994.
Since that time, the certification system has become an international standard for wildlife tracking skills in an increasing number of countries.
Since 1994 more than 5000 CyberTracker tracker certificates have been issued to more than 4000 trackers.
This includes 20 Master Tracker certificates. Seven of them have passed away, but we know that there are more master trackers in the Kalahari who have not yet been evaluated.
