Some days in life we steer the propeller, and other days we ride the waves. There’s a delicate balance between making and allowing.

City girl goes ‘wild’

A self-proclaimed ‘high maintenance’ girl from Johannesburg, currently on an FGASA Field Guide course at Selati, enrolled on this course to learn as much about wildlife as she can. She has one mission in life: “pursue your passion, and go do great things in life.”

She is a force of Nature, let her soar.

The safari and guiding industry has always been traditionally male-dominated. This was due to the fact that much of the work of a field guide required physical strength, bravery and resilience. With the rise of the 21st century and the liberation of women’s rights, much of these occupations in fact did not require physical strength as it did expertise and skill. So, many courageous women started entering into male-dominant professions such as the guiding, creating a new movement of guiding professionals as we know today. EcoTraining is proud to be a part of this development in the guiding industry.
