Kenya Safari Guide

EcoTraining’s signature Kenya Safari Guide course consists of 28 adventure-packed days living in and learning about nature and ecology at our wilderness camp in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. You will take part in a variety of learning activities, while driving and walking in some of the most stunning areas of Africa.

Why do the course

Whether you’ve chosen a professional career linked to wildlife or nature, have just finished school and are on your gap year, if you’ve possibly taken a career break or are a regular traveller to the bush, this course is for you.
