If you’re looking for a training provider that offers a wide range of courses, EcoTraining is an excellent option. Here are the ten top features to consider when choosing the right course for you!
Regardless of your job – a 9 to 5 one, a flexible hour job, or you barely get to have dinner on time – you need to detoxify your life by entering nature. It will restore your peace and boost your mental well-being. EcoTraining provides the perfect opportunity to experience this. Who knows? Perhaps you’d permanently change your career to being a field guide for a more tranquil alternative.
2. Varying time lengths
EcoTraining fulfils all the varying needs of people who may prefer different course lengths—from a week to a month and even longer. Ensuring you find a period that suits your preference results in the ultimate experience tailored to your requirements.

3. Awareness-raising and education
Immersing yourself in untouched biodiversity and wilderness would raise awareness of its significance. Just as EcoTraining aims to make their courses a tool for transforming people into eco-friendly. Maybe you’ll be more aware of Baobab and Miombo trees after your visit.
4. World-class instructors
What is better than seeking guidance under the masters of the bush from EcoTraining? Learning about the tiny creatures of the bush, to the more giant mammals and experiencing all of this first-hand together with the wealth of knowledge being shared from our Instructors to our students.
5. Full of surprises
The wild, as always, has been unpredictable; that makes it stand out from any other experiences. One moment you are soaking wet from the rain, and the next, you experience a buffalo sighting. It’s all about the learnings you pick up from such moments.

6. Learning survival skills
One of the essential learnings of these nature courses would be survival skills – igniting a fire, using the milky way to find your way back and using shrubs for healing purposes. These skills help in cases of emergency and are life-saving.
7. Cultural exchange
Meeting new people is another significant part of the EcoTraining courses. It is an exchange of words from each other’s languages, broken pronunciations and bonding regardless of language, culture or traditions being a barrier. Probably be the purest form of bonding; what makes it better is that it’s all within the lap of nature.
8. Sustainable living
While today’s world relies so much on Wi-Fi and living a plugged-in life, EcoTraining camps provide the opportunity to live a relatively more environmentally friendly life, which could even inspire you to make your life more sustainable.

Fortunately, EcoTraining offers a variety of courses. You can choose from various courses, e.g. field guide courses, tracking courses, photography courses, birding courses and trail skills.

With these features, EcoTraining makes it easy to find the right course for your needs and start your journey towards a career in wildlife conservation.
