Courses for wildlife enthusiasts

Looking for an immersive wildlife experience?

At EcoTraining you can live your African dream for a week, two weeks, a month or even a year.   You may long to experience a day in the life and work of a safari guide or you may be an avid conservationist at heart wanting to know more about ecosystems, the web of life and all that makes up mother nature.

Our wildlife courses and programs are just what you have been looking for!

There is nothing more experiential and interactive than being a participant on course at unfenced tented bush camps in prime wildlife areas.   Even at luxury safari lodges you will not get the level of interaction and learning that you will find on one of our wildlife courses.

If you love tales of Africa's wildlife and the game rangers living and working there, we have programs that will enable you to experience it all whilst also learning about it.    Animals of all sizes and shapes sometimes visit our unfenced tented camps at any time during your stay with us making the learning a 24/7 adventure.
