DESCRIPTION

EcoTraining combines the adventure of a safari with environmental education into one true wilderness experience. By reconnecting people with nature, we train naturalists, nature lovers, intrepid explorers and aspiring safari guides to become ambassadors of nature. We offer accredited career courses, gap year and sabbatical programmes, nature programmes, high school and university study abroad programmes, custom courses and on-site professional guide training at safari lodges. All of our courses are run directly from EcoTraining’s unfenced bush camps in prime wilderness areas across South Africa, Botswana, Kenya and Zimbabwe. By sharing nature’s processes, its ecosystems and the importance of wilderness, we seek to equip people with the skills necessary to effect positive change in the world. We believe nature conservation is about people. To date EcoTraining has trained over 12 000 people from 33 different countries around the world.

Our vision is to reconnect people with nature. To bring about environmental consciousness as a means to preserve the natural world.

Our mission is to train naturalists, guardians and professional field guides as ambassadors for nature. We aim to provide a rich, knowledgeable and practical learning experience for students to reach their full potential. By sharing nature’s processes, its ecosystems and the importance of wilderness, we seek to equip people with the skills necessary to effect positive change in the world. We believe nature conservation is about people.
