7/14-day EcoQuest Course

The EcoQuest course provides an in-depth bush learning experience. It incorporates aspects, such as ecology, animal tracks and tracking, and basic bush skills.


Experiential learning

Because the EcoQuest programme emphasises experiential learning and hands-on activities, you will learn without even realising it. The course discusses a wide range of subjects, including symbiotic relationships in nature, the ecosystem, poaching problems, and the interactions between all elements of the ecosystem, including the role of humans.

EcoTraining’s wildlife course is also personal, with no more than 20 participants per course. This course fosters closer relationships with other nature enthusiasts on the programme. You’ll spend your EcoQuest course at camps in prime wildlife areas and take twice-daily wilderness hikes or game drives.
