Customised Wildlife Programmes

EcoTraining offers customised courses for agents and tour operators to assist them with the planning of educational safari itineraries catered for small group departures, alumni travel, private celebrity travel, summer schools, and university study abroad programmes.


Learning experience

All customised itineraries have an ecological solid learning component and are designed to provide participants with knowledge about the infinite variety of living organisms that exist in nature and the underlying elements that support this variety of life, such as geology, soils, and climate, to mention a few.

Our Customised Wildlife Programmes emphasise two components – learning about the fascinating elements of nature and how each is carefully interconnected in a specific region and, secondly, experiencing aspects of typical safari guide training. Customised courses are intelligently tailored to factor in the client’s objectives to ensure all deliverables are met and exceeded.

The benefits of our Customised Wildlife Programmes

Immersion in the African wilderness enables awareness and appreciation for the natural environment, its biodiversity, and the interrelatedness of species. It’s not just about wildlife education but understanding the process that drives ecosystems. An overall appreciation of nature and an understanding of man’s dependency on nature and the environment are gleaned. All of this equips participants to be environmentally aware in the future.

Living and learning in nature, sans technology, enhances social interaction and an appreciation for communal living. These values are the foundation for all our courses, which ensures clients complete our custom wildlife courses feeling enriched, rejuvenated and with a new appreciation for the natural world.
