Welcome to EcoTraining Ė where educational, life-changing wilderness experiences await you.
For more than 23 years, EcoTraining has been sending several thousands of people of all ages into the African wilderness to learn about the environment in exciting, in-depth and sensitive ways and to find out what it really takes to become a game ranger or a field guide.
EcoTrainingís Safari Guide and Wildlife courses provide participants with facts and a wealth of knowledge which open up their minds to the fragility of the planet on which we live. † Courses are conducted from game drive vehicles and on foot, often with close encounters with big game - on their terms. You will learn so much about ecology, star-gazing, geology, plant and bird identification and animal tracks and tracking. Other activities include bush survival and navigation, animal behavior, the ethos of sensitive game viewing and much more.
Who does our training: for school-leavers set on a career in safari guiding in the ecotourism industry; or for those seeking a productive and meaningful GAP YEAR in nature, EcoTraining is the place to be. Their shorter wildlife courses provide a unique holiday alternative for working professionals.
