Our Wildlife programs and courses are designed for everyone who is interested in nature, whether they intend to pursue a career in conservation or simply love being in the bush.
This is EcoTraining's well-known 28-day Safari Guide training course, aimed at those wishing to experience a bush holiday, while also learning about the environment they are in. A month of living and learning in nature at our wilderness camps (Selati and Karongwe in South Africa, and Mashatu in Botswana) will provide you with the practical and theoretical knowledge of the natural environment.
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.
The EcoQuest course (seven or 14 days) is designed to provide a learning experience, and incorporates certain aspects of our Safari Guide course. It is aimed at those who are looking for a more in-depth bush experience, but who do not necessarily have four weeks to break away from work obligations.
Birding as a hobby has grown tremendously in popularity in the past decade, and these days visitors to the African wilderness areas want to do more than simply spot large game. Owing to this development on the ecotourism front, we have developed our seven-day Birding in the Bush course.
