“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
It was an exciting week at our camp as a pack of eight Wild dogs were released on the Mashatu Game reserve. With a little luck on our side the students got to be the very first people to see them after being released.
Since her first course with EcoTraining in 2015, Phoebe Mottram was hooked and came back for three other courses afterwards. “To put it simply EcoTraining has changed my life and I can’t thank them enough for that”!
Love takes its shape and form in a countless number of ways, be it between humans or animals. In the past 23 years, our trainers and students learning amidst wildlife, have been lucky enough to witness and capture all sorts of love lessons from the bush. What better way to learn than from nature itself.
Abbie got to see her very first elephant in the African bush, all the while driving a game drive vehicle for the first time. What would seem like a daunting experience turned out to be an unforgettable moment that will be remembered for a lifetime.
What at first seemed as a week of average game encounters, soon turned into a very exciting week, filled with some amazing wildlife sightings.
At EcoTraining, our trainers and learners acknowledge and respect that Mother Nature is more powerful than man. It is a humbling concept that they experience on a daily basis in our wilderness areas. Be it a towering elephant crossing one's path or a torrential downpour that floods our camp nestled on the river banks.
