Of the EcoTraining 1-year Professional Field Guide course, he says:
“It was everything and more. I met incredible people far from home but with a big shared interest. Our group had students from nine different countries, and we had a blast.”
Rufus has visited most EcoTraining camps in Southern Africa and says Mashatu in Botswana is his favourite.
“I am not spiritual, but it felt spiritual there. I can’t explain it. It wasn’t just the place’s natural beauty; it was something more.”
His advice to prospective EcoTraining students is as follows:
“Do it. Don’t dither. The best advice I received was from my younger brother. He said: ‘Say no to absolutely nothing’.”
And so the world is wide open to welcome him.
